    I Googled IVAW and found this website: these are not Code Pinkers, they are actual veterans appalled by the open-ended, unplanned and unfunded aggressive wars of conquest and empire we embarked on in the beginning of the last decade and (sadly) continue today.

    At first I reacted negatively to the inclusion of Obama in the graphics, but as Commander-in-Chief they are his wars now as much as they were by those who initiated them. And bear in mind, though the US no longer officially tortures suspects, rendition is still in place; we simply transport them to places where torture and mock execution continue to be a de facto interrogation technique, to our great national shame.

    History will not be kind to our current era.

    Eddie Izzard joked about it... But it's true.

    History is rarely kind.

    The issue is complex and war is never easy.
