A Chorus Against the War


By Howard Zinn • The Progressive • March 2003
As I write this, it looks like war. This, in spite of the obvious lack of enthusiasm in the country for war. The polls that register “approve” or “disapprove” can only count numbers; they cannot test the depth of feeling. And there are many signs that the support for war is shallow and shaky and ambivalent.

This Administration will not likely be stopped, though it knows its support is thin. In fact, that is undoubtedly why it is in such a hurry; it wants to go to war before the support gets any thinner.
