Is it just a number?

Read in the paper this morning that U.S. death count is now more than 3,500.  Is this another milestone?  The surge seems not to be working.  The president claims to want the troops on the ground to have the final say in combat decisions, but he only listens to perspectives that match his imperialistic vision for nation-building. He will allow no time lines and yet sets benchmarks.  The Democratic party sent out a message that the administration is viewing Iraq not as another Viet Nam but as another Korea.

Fifty years later will be wondering why we are still defining Iraq for Iraqis?  How can we honor heroes this 4th of July? Can we speak to the hypocritical policies while recognizing the legitimate service to country?

Perhaps we can honor those in the peace movement who have been arrested, who have been vocal opponents, maybe posters of politicians who have been against policy, maybe one of Cindy Sheehan?

Friends of the Peace Forum:

On Sunday, June 9, 2007, we will be meeting to discuss our participation in the 4th of July Parade. We will also discuss what we want to do next. Any thoughts on how to honor heroes. Maybe we could honor peace makers. Do something with images of people who have sacrificed for peace? (Gandhi, King, etc)
