No Good Words....

The DoD released the news today that the son of Prof. Andrew Bacevich of Boston Univ., Andrew J. Bacevich, was among those U.S. troops killed on Sunday by an IED in Balad, Iraq.

Bacevich's most recent book was The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced By War, and it's worth reading, perhaps especially so, right now.

The Bacevich family has my condolences, and my fervent wishes that this war, which has claimed so many lives unnecessarily, now including Andrew's, be brought to a prompt end. Would that our politicians had the will to do so.
