November 5, 2007: This website is an archive of the former website, traprockpeace.org, which was created 10 years ago by Charles Jenks. It became one of the most populace sites in the US, and an important resource on the antiwar movement, student activism, 'depleted' uranium and other topics. Jenks authored virtually all of its web pages and multimedia content (photographs, audio, video, and pdf files. As the author and registered owner of that site, his purpose here is to preserve an important slice of the history of the grassroots peace movement in the US over the past decade. He is maintaining this historical archive as a service to the greater peace movement, and to the many friends of Traprock Peace Center. Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK OF TRAPROCK PEACE CENTER, which has reorganized its board and moved to Greenfield, Mass. To contact Traprock Peace Center, call 413-773-7427 or visit its site. Charles Jenks is posting new material to PeaceJournal.org, a multimedia blog and resource center.
Thank you . . .
for contacting me regarding your concerns over possible military
action against Iraq. While I am opposed to Saddam Hussein's regime, I
share your view that we must proceed with great caution.
As you may know, the President has made it clear that he considers a
change of regime in Iraq to be an important goal and that this transition
may require military force. At this time, I still have serious concerns
over the necessity of a preemptive strike against Iraq, including the need
for compelling evidence that Iraq represents an imminent threat to our
national security. I am also very concerned about the prospect of moving
ahead without the support of our allies. Any possible action will have
many ramifications and costs, including putting our servicemen and women
in harm's way, so we must carefully consider all options before taking any
Thank you again for taking time to communicate your opinion on this
critical matter. As always, please feel free to contact my office if I
can ever be of assistance in the future.
