One thought on “Come and meet Breaking the Silence in DC

  1. Israel should hold the same spectacle for American, Britsh, German, Spanish, Italian, French and Canadian soldiers wanting to speak out against the “crimes” commited by their troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. After reading most of the “testimonies” it is obvious who will be running to attend this event; people who have never witnessed a war first hand. Go out a look for an infantryman where you live and hand out some of these testimonies to him. I’m sure he will give you a smile and welcome you to the reality of war.
