Some antiwar links




Sheldon Richman

As we descend into our latest Iraq war, I thought it might be timely to post a few antiwar leaks.

Antiwar.com remains a good resource. There's lots of stuff up on Iraq, including Justin Raimondo's latest.  Chad Nelson, whose articles on RAW have been mentioned here, also has a new piece on the site, on "Challenging the Motives Behind War."

EconLog, a Libertarian blog with a quiet, reasoned tone, is also a reliably good antiwar blog. Here are some of my favorites from contributor David Henderson: "One Innocent Person Is Killed. Response: Kill More Innocent People." "Paul Krugman on Why We Fight," "Trade Creates Peace." 

Sheldon Richman has a great piece on "Ten Lessons, Plus One, We Should Learn from 9/11"

I've linked to libertarian pieces so far, but I don't mean to be partisan. ZoĆ« Carpenter has a good piece in The Nation, "Is the War on ISIS Illegal?" And here is Tom Hayden on the new war.

There are reasonable Conservative antiwar opinions as well. Daniel Larison at the online American Conservative argues from a conservative foreign policy viewpoint and links to others of like mind.
