Memorial Day

On Memorial Day 2012 2013 2014 let us remember our dead combatants and resolve to eradicate warring by rendering it a logical and legal impossibility, on their behalf.

WH, Presidential Proclamation -- Prayer  [Plan?] for Peace, Memorial Day 2014 and VOA, Obama Makes Surprise Visit to Afghanistan

Let's also remember the enthusiasm, which launched our 13 year war parade and not tolerate any asymmetry between that enthusiasm and the enthusiasm, which our appropriators fund the extraordinarily costly cleanup of war's carnage.

DoD, Obama Vows Vets Will Get Care They Earned; DoD, Suicide Prevention and Awareness; VA, Mental Health; WP, To curb military suicides, should funds go for sit-ups or psychologists? (fund both, no need to debate physical verses psyche or how many angels dance on the head of a pin!)

UPDATED 05/26/2013  WH, Presidential Proclamation -- Prayer for Peace, Memorial Day, 2013

Mr. President, a paradigm that pins ribbons; passes out medals; publishes Presidential Proclamations and pronouncements; prays for peace; pursues policies that promote, prepares for and perpetuate war; or periodically pokes American flags into the graves of our soldiers is unlikely to produce a persistent peace—so, let's change the paradigm!
