Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Figure it out

This is almost a poem.
We need poems to reach people about the atrocity that is war.

Iraq was and is a crime against humanity.

Fat little (or big) western man refuses to see it, or challenge it.

Shame, shame, shame, on him, on us all.

It is all in the numbers refers to the way the economic the accounting machine runs our lives. We have forgotten human values.

Grass Lake, Michigan, USA">Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Figure it out: "I'm a Vietnam infantry veteran who has taken the time to peel away the onion of war. Strip off the uniforms, the flags, the nationalities, the slogans. War is, at best, the failure of leaders to solve problems. At worst, war is a massive money-generating machine with no regard for life. It's all in the numbers.
