Opposition to ‘stupid wars and indiscriminate’ violence continues

I’m glad to see, from his letter (this newspaper, Oct. 25, 2012), that Trey Miller missed us from our corner in Carmel Valley. If he (or anyone else, for that matter) would like to see us again, many of the same people who were at El Camino Real and Del Mar Heights Road four years ago can currently be found every Thursday afternoon from 4-6 p.m. at the corner of Scripps Poway Parkway and General Atomic Way, across from General Atomic, a major manufacturer of drones for the military.

After speaking out against the Iraq and Afghanistan wars perpetrated by George W. Bush, we are now protesting Barack Obama’s indiscriminate drone warfare, targeted assassinations, and the move to bring those drones home to American skies. God knows what effects they will have on the Fourth Amendment here. Mr. Miller wonders where our passion is and what our real agenda might be. Conspiracy theories aside, we once again stand in opposition to stupid wars and indiscriminate violence. It doesn’t matter to us who is in charge of them.
