chris hedges and "collateral damage"

You'll recall that when I read Chris Hedges' modern classic War Is A Force That Gives Us Meaning, I couldn't stop posting about it. (Here, here, here and here.) It's a gripping, stomach-churning and eye-opening account of the psychology and reality of war.

Hedges has a new book, Collateral Damage - America's War Against Iraqi Civilians, co-authored by Laila al-Arian. TomDispatch describes it "two-person version of . . . Winter Soldier".

You can read an extended excerpt here. I'd warn you not to read this before sleep, or while you're eating, or anytime you don't want to cry.

When you support military resistance, you are supporting people who said no to this horror, and who said yes to peace.
