THIS is excellent:


Here's an excerpt:

"And what will we see in 2003?

War, most certainly. As an idea, a reality, and a means to an end. War on ourselves, on others, on who we used to be; war on the better parts of our nature, perhaps, and on the possibilities of our future. And war as justification - the justifications that will abound as we go forward into our uncertain future, unsure of our way, of who we want to be or who our friends are. The kind of a war that substitutes the values of life, liberty and happiness with the realities of geopolitical authority, scorched earth domestic policy, and the crushing of dissent. The kind of a war that fails to leave us unchanged, and not for the better, no matter how hard we cling to our illusions."
