Some observers might be confused about the recent events. The Peace Movement criticized Keith Ellison for voting for the defense appropriation that continues funding for the Iraq War up to 2009, while members of the Twin Cities Peace Campaign and the Anti-War Committee protested at the offices of Senator Norm Coleman against his continued support of the war, even though Coleman voted against a Senate version of the funding proposal.
T. S. Eliot said: "The last temptation is the greatest treason, to do the right deed for the wrong reason."
Coleman voted against the resolution because it set time limits and benchmarks to our continuation of the war. He did the right deed for the wrong reason.
Ellison voted for the resolution because it set time limits and benchmarks. According to the Peace Movement, he did the wrong deed for the right reason.
The Peace Movement is not confused. They want an end to war in Iraq, an end to the funding of the war, and they want all the troops home now!
