  •  I'm a pacifist... (4.00)
    ...I was against the invasion of Afghanistan, and I did not support Clinton's attacks on a pharmaceutical factory, or whatever that turned out to be.

    I'm against war.  It's not the way civilized people should resolve their difference.  It means killing a fucking lot of innocent people and I never like that.

    Yeah, I guess this is why people think I have no credibility:  Because I am willing to realize what war is.  It's killing.

      Bingo!

      I'm a pacifist and I'm really tired of being acccused of all sorts of things because of that stance, especially because nobody takes a pacifist stance because it's cool or something. A gun does one thing: kill. That's the only thing it's good for. Same with a military: it kills. That's what it's there for. We're approaching the half-trillion dollar mark in spending per annum on "defense." (What the hell are we defending?)

      Someone else noted there's a lot of "I'm a pacifist, but....." on this thread. It's okay, folks....I believe that if homo sapiens could get past slavery, we can get past war.
