Vietnam & Iraq
As the similarities of U.S. involvement between Vietnam & Iraq grow we felt compelled to reissue the original October/November 1969 Vietnam Moratorium Peace Dove button. A classic.

And to put it all in historical perspective, a great read is the Illustrated comic book:

Addicted to War:

Why the U.S. Can’t Kick Militarism

an illustrated exposé by
Joel Andreas.

Just a few of the reviews:
  " As a veteran of three wars, World War II through Vietnam, with 33 years of Army service, I find this book to be the most truthful recitation of our government’s policies available anywhere. "
Col. James Burkholder,
U.S. Army, Retired

  " Addicted to War is not only a witty and entertaining portrait of our military war-dependent economy but a truly relevant insight not available in mainstream media, something our children should know before they must make their choice to become fodder for the military machine. "
Susan Sarandon, Actor

  " Addicted to War should be required reading for every student in America.  I encourage educators to use it to help students understand the consequences of U.S. militarism for people here and around the world. "
Rev. J. M. Lawson
Colleague of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1957-1968

  " Addicted To War is must reading for Americans of all ages who are concerned with understanding the true nature of U.S. foreign policy and how it affects us here at home. "
Martin Sheen, Actor

  " Brilliant! This book is an excellent teaching tool and basic primer to help people understand some of the things that really drive this country. The art is fabulous and helps to take the sting out of such a grisly subject. What's really hard is making people recognize their own responsibility to do something about it. "
Michael Ruppert
former LAPD Narcotics Officer

  " This book analyzes why men are addicted to fighting and killing -- an addiction that could, in this the nuclear age, destroy all life on earth, creating the final epidemic of the human race. "
Helen Caldicott
Pediatrician and author of
"Missile Envy"

Available through at the special price of $7.00 (suggested retail $8.00) + S&H.
