Quote of the day--on the true cost of war
"We are dedicated to exposing the true costs of war and militarism." --Mike Ferner, President of Veterans for Peace
"We've killed well over a million people. We've orphaned and displaced five times that number at least. And here in our own country, we've managed to throw millions of people of out work and out of their homes. There is a connection there. That connection is the true cost of war."
(Mike Ferner and famed anti-war activist Daniel Ellsberg participated in an anti-war protest at the White House yesterday, wherein they were arrested by the local police.)
