    What can we do?

    Holding the "fierceness of moral clarity" about war in all of its forms is one step.

    Educating everyone we can that all forms of military solution appear superficially to be an answer, but never are.  All military solutions utterly fail at first contact between the opposing forces.

    Take the time and don't get impatient.  Some Quakers call this the 100 year Lamb's War.  It took a long time to end slavery in America.  It took a long time to get universal suffrage.  It is taking a long time to get marriage rights, but with a long view it will happen. Eventually the generations that believe military action is the solution to anything will die off.

    It the mean time we must do everything we can no matter what the cost.

    Did you know every single dollar collected from the Income Tax goes to the Military? (Everything else is paid for by Borrowing and Corporate Taxes.)
