The Human Costs of War: A tribute to the Winter Soldier

Produced by Chapter 39 Veterans for Peace [Cleveland & NE Ohio], this is powerful, graphic and eye-opening. Think of it before voting for anyone talking about a war on Iran. It closes with some potent thoughts:

"If there is a sin superior to every other, it is that of willful and offensive war."
~ Thomas Paine, American Patriot

"War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong: and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses."
~ Thomas Jefferson

"He who is the author of a war lets loose the whole contagion of Hell, and opens a vein that bleeds a nation to death."
~ Thomas Paine

May the innocent find peace...
May the dead find grace...
May the wounded find healing & comfort....
May the homeless find shelter...
May justice find the guilty...
May America find salvation and forgiveness
