After Trump’s buffoonish military farce on the 4th, meet a true American hero.
…if it’s naive to want peace instead of war, let ’em make sure they say I’m naive. Because I want peace instead of war. If they tell me they want war instead of peace, I don’t say they’re naive, I say they’re stupid. Stupid to an incredible degree to send young people out to kill other young people they don’t even know, who never did anybody any harm, never harmed them. That is the current system. I am naive? That’s insane.
It is not often you get the chance to meet a man who holds a place in history like Ben Ferencz. He’s 99 years old, barely five feet tall, and he served as prosecutor of what’s been called the biggest murder trial ever.
