Veterans’ Day

leave a comment »

There’s been the usual orgy of pro-military coverage today, even on NPR. I have no problem taking in stories of soldiers’ heroism and sacrifice. Indeed, I’ve been moved by many of them (see The War Tapes). But I wish somewhere today I had seen, heard, or read a single tribute to the stupidity and futility of war — and what our umpteen candidates for president might be proposing to ensure that none in our armed forces have to suffer through it anymore. What better tribute to veterans today or any other day than get us out of war?
