Protect the Children

Jacob G. Hornberger takes solace in the recent NY Times article about the growing reticence among parents to send their kids off to die for the empire.

He writes, "Parents are wise to protect their children from the U.S. military and its wrongful invasion and occupation of Iraq, not only in the hope of protecting the lives and limbs of their children from being wasted in a wrongful and destructive cause but also in the hope of ensuring that their children are not put in the horrible moral dilemma of either killing innocent people or being killed."

It's really as simple as that.
