Animals and war, NGO abstentionism

Just one more example of how war hurts absolutely every living being...

It's really disappointing that every nonprofit organization--enviro, animal, arts, healthcare, housing, bicycling, whatever--has NOT taken a STRONG, VOCAL position of opposition to the American Imperial War Project.

Among other things, billions of dollars that might otherwise be used to, say, spay and neuter animals, or clean up the environment, or build bike paths, or pay art teacher salaries, or whatever--are instead used to kill Iraqis.

These NGOs have to stop waiting for the Democrats to say its OK to oppose this wasteful stupid war.

That's kind of the point of my new blog:
War Budget Gone Bad
