Margo Okazawa-Rey on Why Women Should be Against the War
Okazawa-Rey criticized the Bush administration for using women to justify the war after cutting U.S. aid to sexual education and health programs world wide. Laura Bush, Okazawa-Rey said, is not a feminist, and the plight of women has, until the war on terrorism, been far from her mind. She went on to discuss the economic and strategic value of Iraq, making it a more important target to the government than more dangerous nations and the lunacy of checking for chemical and biological weapons or weapons of mass destruction when the U.S. began Iraq's programs in these areas in the 1980s. "The biggest terrorists," Okazawa-Rey said, "are the ones who are calling for a war on terrorism."
