Chicago is the largest city in the country to oppose a possible war with Iraq. This is from an e-mail I received:

For Immediate Release

Chicago Passes Anti-War Resolution

46-1 Vote Follows Extensive and Personal

Debate (Chicago, Jan. 16, 2003)

After one of the most mesmerizing, impassioned and personal debates ever to occur in Chicago’s City Council Chamber, Chicago has become the largest and most prominent city in the nation to formally oppose a unilateral pre-emptive strike on Iraq.

One by one, black and white, Latino and Jewish, men and women, the Aldermen stood to draw attention to their own particular concerns with the current path of the Bush Administration. Many pointed out that the real dangers this nation faces today are the rising rates of unemployment and economic stagnation. Others were concerned about the double standard the administration is showing with respect to North Korea. And some drew attention to the prospect of young sons and daughters

coming home in body bags from an ill-conceived war.

The Committee of Human Relations of the Chicago City Council sent the “Resolution Opposing Pre-emptive U.S. Military Strikes

on Iraq” to the full council today after a vote yesterday.

“It is our sons and daughters who will be recruited–perhaps even conscripted–to fight in this war,” said Ald. Joseph Moore (49th), chief sponsor of the resolution. Ald. Leslie Hairston (5th) was concerned that the “cost of the war will dry up federal funding

for domestic programs for a war that has yet to be justified.”

Judith Kossy of Chicagoans Against the War on Iraq said she and her organization were deeply moved by the leadership of Ald. Joe Moore, Ald. Helen Shiller, Ald. Ricardo Munoz, Ald. Leslie Hairston and by the action taken today the City Council. “Two out of three people in the nation oppose a unilateral war. It’s important for local leaders to articulate their constituent’s feelings to President Bush and to the world,” Kossy said.

The full resolution follows: RESOLUTION OPPOSING A PRE- EMPTIVE U.S.

MILITARY ATTACK ON IRAQ

WHEREAS, the issues between Iraq and the world

community have not proven to be irresoluble by

traditional diplomatic efforts; and

WHEREAS, while Saddam Hussein is a tyrant who should be removed from

power, both for the good of the Iraqi people and for the security of

Iraq’s neighboring countries, it is not at all clear that a unilateral

U.S. military action would result in the installation

of a free and democratic Iraqi government; and

WHEREAS, U.S. military actions would risk the deaths of thousands of

Iraqi civilians without guaranteeing the safety and security of U.S.

citizens; and

WHEREAS, a pre-emptive and unilateral U.S. military

attack would violate international law and our

commitments under the U.N. Charter and further isolate

the U.S. from the rest of the world; and

WHEREAS, the Congressional Budget Office estimates a

military action against Iraq will cost our nation

between $9 and $13 billion a month, likely resulting in further cuts in

federally funded projects and programs that benefit our city and its

residents; and

WHEREAS, a U.S.-led war in Iraq would compromise our

current action in Afghanistan, and require years of nation-building

activities in Iraq; and

WHEREAS, the Bush administration has failed to

articulate a clear strategic objective or outcome of a military attack

against Iraq, and such an attack fails to enjoy the support of many of

our important allies; and

WHEREAS, we give our unconditional support to U.S.

military personnel serving at home and abroad in their tireless battle

against global terrorism, and should our military forces be sent to

Iraq, we give our unyielding support to our young men and women serving

in our nation’s military, even if we oppose the policy

that sent them there;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that we, the members of

the City Council of the City of Chicago, oppose a pre-

emptive U.S. military attack on Iraq unless it is

demonstrated that Iraq poses a real and imminent threat

to the security and safety of the United States; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we support a return of

U.N. weapons inspectors to Iraq, enhanced by sufficient

police support to guarantee unfettered access to all

targeted sites; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we urge the U.S. to work

through the U.N. Security Council and reaffirm our

nation’s commitment to the rule of law in all

international relationships; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a copy of this resolution

be forwarded to the Illinois congressional delegation

and the President of the United States.

And now for something completely different

I took an on line version of the Meyers Brigs (sp) test and found out I am an INFP…ask anyone, that explains a lot. Upon further researching this type here and here…I am almost scared with how accurate this thing is. Tripp….something about us aquariuses, huh?

Peace
