War and Peace

In November of 1963, John Kennedy stated at a national security peace-justicecouncil meeting that he intended to withdraw all troops and advisors from “that conflict.”

But later that month he was killed, and his Vice President, Lyndon Johnson… who was in that meeting, ignored Jack’s wishes and continued the needless devastation. We lost thousands and Vietnam and Cambodia lost millions… so that Standard Oil could complete soundings in the gulf which have since allowed them to control and profit from extraction in the gulf. The first oil war was expensive in lives and resources.

vetsforpeaceThe cost of wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan are estimated at 225,000 lives and up to $4 trillion in U.S. spending, in a new report by scholars with the Eisenhower Research Project at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies.

The group’s “Costs of War” project has released new figures for a range of human and economic costs associated with the U.S. military response to the 9/11 attacks.

Wars of choice are surrender.
Peace is victory.
