While the media and the public have been focused on Eliot Spitzer’s disgrace at least eight more American soldiers have been killed in Iraq. That brings the total of American war dead to nearly 4,000. Iraq is not even front page news as we move into the sixth year of the illegal war that has cost this country as estimated 3 billion dollars. The fourth estate has fallen asleep at the switch. They’re more concerned with tabloid journalism stories than about what’s killing America and Americans. Lent is a time of new beginnings. May we have a new beginning that will see our nation rise up and demand an end to war. A new film, War Made Easy is available and here is the trailer.
