CARACAS, Venezuela - Venezuela and Ecuador have ordered troops to their borders with Colombia, raising concerns of a broader conflict after Colombia killed a top rebel leader on Ecuadorean soil.
“War on Women?” How about “War on the Innocent.” Why is it if you speak to the rights of the unborn you are labeled as a warrior against women. The right not to get pregnant is clearly the right of all women. If they fail to protect that right, then the destruction of the baby is the true casualty of war.
Eyes Wide Open, the American Friends Service Committee’s widely-acclaimed exhibition on the human cost of the Iraq war, features a pair of boots honoring each U.S. military casualty, a field of shoes and a Wall of Remembrance to memorialize the Iraqis killed in the conflict, and a multimedia display exploring the history, cost and consequences of the war.

BAGHDAD - Iraq's government said at least 85,000 people were killed from 2004 to 2008, officially answering one of the biggest questions of the conflict - how many perished in the sectarian violence that nearly led to a civil war. What remains unanswered is how many died in the 2003 U.S. invasion and in the months of chaos that followed it.
One year after the U.S. assassination of Osama bin Laden, I’m concerned that our government is still pursuing the same failed war strategy in Afghanistan based on bringing “peace” through fighting and war.
“The Price of Freedom”: This production tells the compelling story of World War II soldiers and their families through a dramatized collection of letters, newsreels, photographs and radio broadcasts.
It’s hard to figure out Mitt Romney.
I applaud the headline over Tom Patterson’s guest commentary, “U.S. involvement in Syrian conflict a lose-lose proposition” (June 30, 2013), that protests yet another blundering intervention in the Middle East but who in their right mind does support this aggression? Then I remembered U.S. Sen. John McCain’s May 2013 trip to that war-torn land to meet with rebels and his promise of American support for their cause. Also Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, has been begging for U.S. military action for the past year. And please, do not forget the French, who seem eager for the U.S. taxpayer to fund another war.

LONDON -- On the surface, it looks like a polite tug of war between two of the world's great churches, each saying nice things about the other. But the ramifications of the conflict between the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England are broad and not yet completely clear, with details of the Vatican's offer to help Anglicans convert still unpublished.
WASHINGTON - Anti-war Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain, a strong backer of the Iraq conflict, were reaching out to veterans on Monday, the country's Memorial Day holiday, as the presidential candidates inched closer to a likely faceoff in the November general election.
War does not mean that just anything goes, but it is more than puzzling that John Kerry would have called for "a more sensitive war on terror" in a recent speech to minority journalists.
Picture the scene: The year is 1863 and President Abraham Lincoln has passed the Emancipation Proclamation to end slavery. Three years into the Civil War, Dr. and Mrs. Roberts are trying to live in a war-torn America.

Scott Sternlieb’s remarks on Nov. 7 were uninformed and unfair. He inferred that instances of slave murder, torture and rape were common. They were not. Slavery, then as now, was an uncivilized and inhuman institution, but the slaveholders were not the Simon Legrees depicted in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Assuming them to be so is an affront to any intelligent discussion of the subject.
Horrible, the loss of three innocent lives in the Boston bombing! Then what word could one use to express the fact that between 158,000 and 202,000 civilians have died as a result of the ongoing conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan? It is understandable that the attack in Boston is a national tragedy for the United States. Our sympathies and prayers go out to the victims. But why is it that the loss of innocent lives in the Middle East has been hardly worthy of a second thought, if any, on our part?
