Joey King, board member of Veterans For Peace, discusses the pretenses and lies that got us into war in oil-rich Libya; laying odds on whether Obama will admit a mistake or send in ground troops to make it much worse; how veterans against war and Rep. Ron Paul show conservatives that being antiwar isn’t just for Lefties; and how Veterans For Peace is building up their membership and adding new chapters.

Joey King was Distinguished Military Graduate from Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville. He graduated from the following Army schools: Airborne, Ranger, Pathfinder, Air Assault, Infantry Officer’s Basic Course, Jungle Expert, and the Infantry Officer’s Mortar Platoon Officer’s Course. He served with the 82nd Airborne Division and the Airborne unit in Vicenza Italy. He was a platoon leader and company executive officer. He resigned from the active army in July 1987 and later resigned from the Reserves saying:

“I, 1LT (First Lieutenant) Joey B King SSN# ——-, wish to resign my commission in the Individual Ready Reserve as soon as possible. My 6-year obligation ended 1 Dec 90, however, I was unable to resign at that time due to the Iraq War. I am resigning because of a personal conviction that war is an unacceptable means of resolving differences among nations.”

  4. Just right points?I would word that as somebody who in point of fact doesn't write on blogs so much (in fact, this may be my first put up), I don't think the time period lurker' is very changing into to a non-posting reader. It's no longer your fault in the slightest degree , but most likely the blogosphere may just come up with a better, non-creepy title for the ninety% people that enjoy reading the content .

  6. "Im Canadian cant vote but if I could it would…" Just put down a name that sounds Mexican, Somali, Israeli, Russian et alii, and tell them you're a Democrat in any big city and you too can vote. No ID needed. Those are only needed for important thingslike buying a beer or cashing a small check.
