Disarm, Don't Destroy the Middle East!

Across the political spectrum in the West, we hear cries to "destroy ISIS" or Syria or Iran. But destroying governments and infrastructure and lives with wars is what led to the current disasters in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen.

A huge majority of the weapons sold to Middle Eastern nations comes from the United States. Let's disarm the region instead of destroying it. End U.S. arms shipments to the Middle East.

RootsAction.org campaign coordinator David Swanson's new book, War Is A Lie: Second Edition, is published today. Pick up a copy of the book at your local independent bookstore or online.

Swanson is on a book tour, speaking about the latest developments in the telling and the debunking of lies about wars. Find an event near you at WarIsALie.org.

David Swanson is an author and activist who has dedicated himself to challenging the repetitive falsehoods generated by those in power to justify armed conflict. War Is A Lie is a handbook of sorts, an engaging, always informative manual that can be used to debunk future lies before new wars have any chance to begin.

For this edition of the book, the original 2010 version has been updated and expanded with material on lessons from the United States' most recent wars, more pointers on what can be done to end warmaking, and an epilogue that analyzes new trends in war lying and in resistance to it. No one to whom you give this book can claim they haven't been warned!
