GOP needs to stop beating war drums

Once again, the hawks in the Republican Party are banging on the war drums. We hear the bogeyman is coming. Iran has weapons of mass destruction.

The advisers to Mitt Romney are the same leftovers from the Bush administration – John Bolton, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, et al. Why these hawks want to go to war is beyond me. Is it money? Do sane, rational, caring people really want to see their loved ones blown to bits?

We are still mired in the war in Afghanistan and only recently out of Iraq. I hope the American people have learned the lessons about the hoax perpetrated by President George W. Bush and Cheney, which led to the war in Iraq.
