Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

a nation rocked to sleep - a poem for Casey Sheehan...

Each and every Sunday since February 15th 2004, this memorial is set up on the sand just north of the pier at Santa Monica Beach. The local chapter of Veterans for Peace and other volunteers erect this memorial as a way to acknowledge the costs and consequences of the addiction to war as an instrument of international policy. Similar to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C., a "wall," now about 45 feet in length, identifies all the fallen American military personnel since the U.S. invaded and occupied Iraq to the present day.
Please visit the site via the link provided above. There's also a poem there written by Casey Sheehan's sister, Carly.
