"We Were Soldiers" co-author is against Iraq War March 21, 2007

The words of John Adams are stark and unavoidable: ?Great is the guilt of an unnecessary war.?

Joseph Galloway, co-author of the Vietnam saga ?We Were Soldiers Once ? And Young,? describes Iraq as a ?war in the wrong place, against the wrong people, at the wrong time ? conducted by a president who got every bit of it wrong.?

Andrew Stephens of Britain's New Statesman observes that the expense of caring for severely wounded Iraq veterans will drive the price tag of the war to over 2.5 trillion dollars.

On March 12, Salon reported that ?a unit of the Army's 3rd Infantry Division... is deploying troops with serious injuries and other medical problems, including GIs who doctors have said are medically unfit for battle. Some are too injured to wear their body armor....?

To understand the ultimate cost of this misadventure we turn to James Madison's warning:
?No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.?

Let us end that un-Godly war immediately, and stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
