My Letter to MoveOn


As you know, the United States military bombed Pakistan last week, killing a few militants and some civilians, including children. At the beginning of the Iraq war, your organization was an inspiration to me in the anti-war effort. I have long since become disenfranchised with the organization as it ultimately manifested as a mouth-piece for a political party.

You see, I've realized that war is the health of the state, and this proves to be consistent under the new administration. But where is your outrage? Where are the mass emails opposed to such military violence?

Will you not hold THIS president accountable because he is in your party? That kind of behavior was last seen in another group of people in America. They were called Republicans.

New policies do not cancel out the murder of children. Within the first WEEK Obama has committed Pakistani children to the grave. The first WEEK. Their lives in exchange for political clout amongst war hawks, apparently.

Your organization is in a unique position to hold the new president accountable, and to keep awareness generated.

This is not about political contests, this is about the lives of innocents people in poor lands being sacrificed for cheap statist purposes. That is not change.

That is business as usual.
