This war is about U.S. political, military and economic power, about seizing control of oilfields and about strengthening the United States as the enforcer of an inhumane global status quo. That is why we are opposed to war against Iraq, whether waged unilaterally by Washington or by the UN Security Council, unaccountable to the UN General Assembly and bullied and bribed into endorsing the war. -- from the Campaign for Peace and Democracy, a new organization which includes many of the best-known peace and justice advocates, including Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, Howard Zinn, and two fantastic authors that I've had the privilege of hearing in person recently: Michael Albert (Looking Forward) and Barbara Ehrenreich (Nickel and Dimed).
