Resources for 5 years of war

  • Twenty seven percent of women in the military are reported raped. Actual rates must be much higher. The slogan "join the army, get raped" should be repeated more often. Baring that visit Stop Military Rape
  • “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.” The Iraq war now has its own Winter Soldier event. Some video is up, more is coming. See additional coverage by Spencer Ackerman.
  • Knit for peace (.pdf). "Our military amputees need stump socks. Iraqi babies need blankets." Brought to you by The Granny Peace Brigade. (h.t. pippy)
