Letters to the Editor

Letter: Wars

The Pentagon, right-wing warmongers like Sen. John McCain, and the president (off and on) are trying to get the U.S. into war again. Poor little ol’ Ukraine, let’s rescue them; Russia bad; Putin evil. The fastbull (pun intended) is flying again. We citizens need to be reminded that all this is par for the course, it has happened before: Vietnam and Iraq for starters. The weapons industries, from which the Pentagon benefits, are lobbying hard. Here’s a reminder that needs to be rented from Netflix or otherwise seen: a film documentary titled “War Made Easy, How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death.” Find the trailer on YouTube.
