Dear Odorica,

Yet again, our community is being dragged into an unwanted political fight. And once again, IAVA veterans, family members and allies across the nation are pushing back--to remind Americans to honor and listen to our Gold Star families, and not to politicize them.

Now is not a time for name calling and division. Now is a time for education, for unity and for support to those who need it most. If there's anything that should bring our country together, it should be our Gold Star families. We stand firmly with them now--and always. 

This is a defining moment for our nation. From the White House, to your neighbor, to a stranger on the street, we hope everyone connected to IAVA will focus on moving our country forward together.

Please spread the word and share our efforts to increase support for Gold Star families at iava.org/goldstar. Right now, the real conversation America should be having is about supporting families of the fallen. 

Everything else is senseless noise.


P.S. Veterans Day 2017 is coming soon. It's a chance to deepen our connections, unite our community and inspire America. Keep an eye on your inbox for ways to be a part of this important and inspiring day with IAVA.

Prin ochii unui ursar

Cea mai bună impresie i-a lăsat-o Franța și francezii:
- Ăia oameni, spune cu admirație Vasile Lăcătuș. Nu mofluzi ca nemții. Cum intram într’un sat, se făcea negru în jurul nostru de lume. Muierea începea să ghicească franțuzoaicelor cu ghiocul, fata îi zicea cu tamburina și eu cu ursul. Ploua cu gologanii - din ăia albi și mici - în căciula dancilor… Venea jandarul, ne întreba de “aussweis" și pe urmă se uita și el la urs, râdea, dădea gologanul și trecea înainte…

    Critics Slam Establishment’s Applause for ‘War Criminal’ George W. Bush
    October 20, 2017 at 9:54 am
    Written by Jake Johnson
    “The Iraq War was worse than anything Donald Trump has done (so far).”
    (COMMONDREAMS) — While media outlets and television talking heads were quick to applaud former President George W. Bush’s implicit rebuke of Trumpism in a rare political address delivered in New York on Thursday, many critics dissented from the chorus of applause, calling the speech “hypocritical bullshit” and highlighting Bush’s long list of offenses that includes wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, an overseas torture regime, and “heinous” treatment of Muslims at home and abroad.

    Bush delivered his remarks before a conference hosted by his foundation, which he convened “to support democracy,” in the words of the New York Times.
    During the course of his 16-minute address, the former president lamented that “our discourse” has been “degraded by casual cruelty,” and that “we’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism.”
    Bush also turned his attention to foreign affairs, noting: “We’ve seen the return of isolationist sentiments, forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places.”
    “Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone and provides permission for cruelty and bigotry,” Bush said. “The only way to pass along civic values is to first live up to them.”
    The former president’s remarks were largely greeted with positive press, and many echoed pundit Chris Cilizza’s celebration of the Bush’s “major smackdown” of Trumpism.
    Others, however, saw Bush’s speech as nothing more than “hollow words,” given his long record of human rights abuses.
    In a piece for Vice News, Eve Peyser argued that the “racist and authoritarian” policies of the Bush administration paved the way for Donald Trump’s ascent to the White House.
    While “Bush never verbalized his Islamophobia,” Peyser notes, his “administration detained more than 1,200 people—most of whom were Muslims or of Middle Eastern descent—without charge, instead holding them as ‘material witnesses.’”
    Bush may now be denouncing the “conspiracy theories and outright fabrication” of the present moment, but “the war in Iraq, which destabilized the region, killed hundreds of thousands, and helped give rise to ISISwas predicted on intelligence that Bush’s administration misrepresented to the American people,” Peyser observes.
    The Trump administration is now simply building upon the bigoted policies put into place by the Bush White House and ignoring the former president’s “platitudes,” Peyser concluded.
    Others similarly criticized the media’s largely positive treatment of Bush’s brief emergence from retirement, arguing that such favorable press amounts to “rehabilitation” of a “war criminal” who helped intensify the bigotry and war-mongering he now claims to oppose.
