Tom Degan: On Saturday, December 30, 2006, Saddam Hussein was hanged for his crimes against humanity. On Tuesday, April 2, 2013, George Walker Bush, Richard Bruce Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld live in comfortable retirement. Isn’t life strange?
Carolyn Eisenberg: While Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld make an appealing group of villains, embodying as they do the Deadly Sins of Sloth, Wrath and Pride, responsibility for the Iraq War is not limited to them.
Lauren Steiner: One can listen to anti-war activists and speeches all day long. But nothing is more effective than drawing your own conclusions from the actual stories of these apolitical soldiers who, whether for money, a fully paid education, adventure and/or camaraderie, go to fight and then die.
Robert Link: ICUJP doesn’t have the luxury of pursuing a single issue which can realistically be brought to an end in the short term. Economic, political, sociological, and religious forces in the U.S. are addicted to war.
