How to avoid war with Iran – CSMonitor.com

As long as we have a military industrial complex, the drums of war will not cease. As long as people stand to profit from an aggressive military, there will always be a battle to fit in order to “protect American interests.”

Amazingly, barely out of Iraq, there are those who would have us start a conflict with Iran. My concern about war is the basic idea that “if you live by the sword, you will die by the sword.” Sowing violence only reaps more violence. It leads to retaliation, and it damages those in the military who have to do the butchering and live with disorders like PTSD.

Here is a short article presenting an alternative to war:

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy, as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountain Center. When not in McCarthy, you'll typically find me in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, writing and working with local activists. My primary writing project right now is a novel set in remote bush Alaska, of the magical realism genre wherein an earnest and independent young woman finds a mysterious radio belonging to her grandmother, a device that has paranormal bandwidth and a disturbing ability to mess with one's mental stability.
