Veterans For Peace
Strategies for Moving Beyond War
Veterans working together for peace and justice through non-violence

"It's not my job to decide who's going to live or who's going to die. That's something that I've had to deal with morally and that I'm convinced of. Nothing is more clear in my mind [than] that war is wrong. And I won't be a tool of war anymore. -- SPC Agustín Aguayo, Iraq Vet - Found guilty of desertion - 3/6/2007.

Whenever you advise a ruler in the way of Tao, counsel him not to use force to conquer the universe. For this would only cause resistance. Thorn bushes spring up wherever the army has passed. Lean years follow in the wake of war. Just do what needs to be done. Never take advantage of power. ... Force is followed by loss of strength. This is not the way of Tao. That which goes against the Tao comes to an early end. ------ Lao Tsu (verse 30. tr. Gia Fu Feng)
