Peace and Intellect -

Jon Carroll has an excellent column in the SF Chronicle today, Monday, on the war in Iraq.  He quotes,

Dwight Eisenhower, 

"Men acquainted with the battlefield will not be found among the numbers that glibly talk of another war."  

We all know Bush and his cronies have no acquaintance with the battlefield.  How sad is that.  

It is worth checking out Jon Carroll today.  There are no easy solutions, but there is growing awareness that those who know battle might be the ones who know best how to get and keep our troops out of it.
