When will we learn from the past?

After reading several letters in the Sept. 12th edition of The Union, I feel hopeful. It’s a slim hope, but it’s there. How refreshing to see others speaking out against bombing Iraq and asking important questions such as: Why? Who does it serve? How many nations are in accord with President Bush’s thinking?

We have been here before. Haven’t we learned from the experience of massive air attacks, huge civilian casualties, destruction of antiquities and homes, illnesses carried home in minds and bodies?
