“We are constantly assured that if we listen to the generals and the US intelligence officials, we will be well advised because they know so much more than we do. So how many failures of the generals and the intelligence officials do the American people endure before they turn to others—perhaps even those who study peace and nonviolent power—for a stronger and more helpful analysis? Advisers and colleagues of retired General David Petraeus say that he is approaching political and military leaders, advocating arming al Qaeda in Syria.”

“This is the time of year that many parents send their children off to college with the hope that they will learn, mature, become independent, have a great collegiate experience, but most of all, with the hope that their children will be safe. There is always the usual parent worries that their dorm-bound children will not eat healthy foods, not get enough sleep, or over-party, but one of their worst worries is that their children will be attacked sexually, or be urged on to attack others sexually. Sadly, college surveys show that these kinds of attacks are all too frequent. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that between 20 and 25 percent of women will experience a completed and/or attempted rape during their college career.”

Militarism Run Amok: Russians and Americans Get Their Kids Ready for War

“In 1915, a mother’s protest against funneling children into war became the theme of a new American song, “I Didn’t Raise My Boy to Be a Soldier.” Although the ballad attained great popularity, not everyone liked it. Theodore Roosevelt, a leading militarist of the era, retorted that the proper place for such women was “in a harem?and not in the United States.”

Roosevelt would be happy to learn that, a century later, preparing children for war continues unabated.”
