This is why I'm anti-war

I've been reading an older issue of <i>What is Enlightenment? </i> magazine, the theme of which is whether pacifism and nonviolence are appropriate, or even possible, in the post-9/11 world.

While we can argue the right and wrong of war in the abstract until we are blue in the face, and also argue whether "the world" substantively changed on 9/11, we all need to face the simple fact that when wars are fought, the main casualties of these wars are innocent women and kids like the one seen below.
