"It is dire..."

I want to call your attention to a brief article by Jane Wells entitled, "Reflections on Robin Cook and Cindy Sheehan". Robin Cook, who died Saturday, was the former British Foreign Secretary. He resigned from Blair's cabinet in protest against the plan to attack and invade Iraq.

Here is what Robin Cook said on the subject just last Thursday:

It is dire. I mean, frankly, it is worse than my greatest fears…..Those that advocated the war on the basis that Iraq would be a blow against terrorism have made an immense blunder for which we will be paying the price for a long time to come.

I am so inspired by people like Robin Cook and Cindy Sheehan who have not shrunk before the challenge of speaking out against this unjustifiable war, who have borne themselves with consistent courage, who have maintained their very admirable integrity.
