State of Kentucky Archives: on War & Peace


Steve Beshear: Gratitude for troops who fight terror & keep America free

In the last ten years, our nation has continued to fight the war on terrorism at home and around the world. These men and women volunteer to protect our freedoms and willingly put themselves in dangerous circumstances because they believe in something bigger than themselves. They truly deserve not only our utmost respect, but also our everlasting gratitude.

Chuck Pennacchio: Shred Bush’s preemptive war doctrine

As an American historian, Cold War specialist, and national security expert, I will shred the Bush preemptive war doctrine as illogical, reckless, and feckless. Its application in Iraq alone is a devastating indictment of the neoconservative, corporatist approach that destroys America’s moral leadership, America’s economic interests, American lives, American trade, and American goodwill.
