Bill Richardson: “Ads Don’t Kill People, Wars Do”

From an essay at Huffington Post by Bill Richardson:

Two days ago the Senate had a chance to help get more of our soldiers home for longer periods of time — but the measure failed. Yesterday they had a chance to set a timeline to start withdrawing troops — but that failed too. And today, another measure that would’ve required a withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq failed. Three chances to make a difference, lost. But instead of continuing to push on the most important issue facing our country right now, yesterday Congress spent their time debating and condemning a newspaper ad by an anti-war group.

Let’s get some perspective here — ads don’t kill people — wars kill people. And it is long past time to end this war.
