No More Victims Raises Awareness of Human Costs of Iraq War

Posted by libhom Sunday, February 10, 2008



No More Victims is putting human faces on a war in Iraq that the pundits describe with floating abstractions. Here is what else they do:

No More Victims works to obtain medical sponsorships for war-injured Iraqi children and to forge ties between the children, their families and communities in the United States. We believe one of the most effective means of combating militarism is to focus on direct relief to its victims.

The reality of what is being done to Iraq is staggering. We cannot turn our heads away and ignore it.

  2. The media and the politicians crow of how the surge is working, but they never tell us at what cost. You can't tell this child that it was worth it to invade Iraq because they lost something they'll never get back.

  4. Yes. Human faces. I think this 'war' has been far too abstracted. It's for too easy to shut it all out, and pretend that real people aren't being hurt by it all, when they're thousands of miles away, and not from 'our tribe'. I hate all this nationalism and tribalism that dehumanizes the suffering of 'others'. We're all in this together.
    Good post.
    Thanks for the comment about Obama, and hope, and ending fear. Yes.
