#109 / Pundits For Peace?

I subscribe to periodic news bulletins from  LA Progressive. Click on that link, and you can subscribe, too. There is a "subscribe" box right at the top of the page. It's free.

Pictured above is William Pfaff, the "rare pundit who hated war and militarism." That's the way columnist and book review editor Murray Polner put it. Pundits with a predisposition to peace are rare indeed. After Pfaff's death, about three years ago, they are even more so. 

Here is something from one of Pfaff's columns:

Has it been a terrible error for the US to have built an all-but-irreversible worldwide system of more than 1,000 military bases, stations and outposts: this seemingly was created to enhance US national security, but what if it has actually done the opposite?

I think the answer to Pfaff's question is pretty clear. Investing in war is not the way to security. 

It's the way to Armageddon!
