Anti-war speech in the House

Anti-war speech in the House

California Rep. Pete Stark gave the following speech, of which I reproduce in its entirety. It is perhaps the most cogent and vicious attack on Bush’s war:

Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to this resolution.

I am deeply troubled that lives may be lost without a meaningful attempt to bring Iraq into compliance with UN resolutions through careful and cautious diplomacy.

The bottom line is I don’t trust this President and his advisors.

Make no mistake, we are voting on a resolution that grants total authority to the President who wants to invade a sovereign nation without any specific act of provocation. This would authorize the United States to act as the aggressor for the first time in our history.  Read the complete speech
