Jim Wallis reflects on war

A poignant commentary from Sojourners. This one is by founder Jim Wallis, who reminds us that tragedy and evil are the constant companions of war.

If that weren’t warning enough, we have a report that four marines may have been involved in a brutal massacre back in November, and that they then attempted to cover up their crimes.

War is a rabid bitch, and she will snap at the hand of the victor as eagerly as she savages the conquered. No one involved is immune from infection.

That is why war should be pursued in only the most dire circumstances.

Iraq was not a dire circumstance.
