    I wouldn't be surprised if most of the people who commit crimes today (which include war crimes) watched TV and played video games as children.  Did the TV and video games cause that, and will everyone who watches violent TV or plays violent video games become violent?  No.  But, studies show an increased correlation (see the links in my diary above).

    Obama's been outspoken against the war since the beginning, I believe (correct me if I'm wrong).  This was one press conference as part of one day.  It seems effective to me to advocate against violence both by condemning current violence among adults (like preemptive war that only spurs more hatred) as well as what we teach the next generation.
