# David Codrea - Vanishing Point Reappears - a non-review of what Mr. Codrea and TriggerFinger think is one of the best freedom movies out there. On the surface, it's a movie-length car chase, but underneath it's all about the state's opinion of its slaves, us. Amazon has it for $13.48.

# Amy Goodman at Veterans Against the Iraq War - Three U.S. Soldiers Refusing To Fight Speak Out Against The Iraq War - A Democracy Now interview.

AMY GOODMAN: We're coming up on the second anniversary of the invasion. Will you be speaking out? There are protests all over the country.

KEVIN BENDERMAN: Well, I don't plan on speaking out against just this Iraqi war. What I plan to talk about to people is war in general. We need to leave it behind us. We don't need to be participating in this war or any other wars ever again. Because it robs -- it robs a people that are fighting the wars of their humanity, it robs the noncombatants of their humanity, and it just destroys everyone's soul in the entire process because it is the most brutal thing that any human being can be involved in. It's kill or be killed, period. That's all that war is for.

AMY GOODMAN: Carl Webb, will you be speaking out on this anniversary in one of the protests?

CARL WEBB: Yes, I will. I was invited to New York from Tennessee by an organization called Troops Out Now. And their website is www.troopsoutnow.org, and this Saturday, starting at 10:00 from Marcus Garvey Park heading to Central Park at noon and then on to Mayor Bloomberg's house at 3:00, there will be hopefully a big turnout for this, and I will be speaking out against the war.
