The decision by former anti-war candidate Obama to embroil us in yet another poorly defined, strategically flawed, untenably expensive war in yet another internally tumultuous Arab country - on the anniversary of the Iraq invasion - and the question of just how many food stamp allotments, health care policies or teachers' salaries could be funded with each of the 100-plus $1 million Tomahawk missiles so blithely dropped on civilians, once again, in the laughable name of protecting civilians - what can one say to all this? The Guardian says it won't be pretty. Team America: World Police says yay for us. Edwin Starr, circa 1969, says, "War - What Is It Good For? Absolutely Nothin'."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
