Refusing to engage in a thorough and honest examination of all the issues only enables the ugly truth to rule indefinitely. All who genuinely consider themselves good citizens need to accept their responsibility to stand up and speak the truth to power. It’s the only way well ever have real change.

A fatherless Afghan boy remembers Iraq Memorial to Life

Abdulai the Afghan boy remembers those killed in Iraq, just as he remembers his father

My dad & grand-dad were killed & this morning I went to their graves to remember them

We the people of the world should restore the sacred value of life

We should revive true spirituality & recover our love

I grieve for every person killed in the Iraq war because that grief has also broken my heart

To our friends of Iraq Memorial to Life, our hearts are with you
قلب ما همرای شما است !

Kucinich forced the first substantial Congressional debate on the war in Afghanistan by introducing a privileged resolution to force the President to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan by the end of this year. This video highlights the points made by those arguing in favor of a timetable for withdrawal from Afghanistan.
