Yes, another pro athlete taking a stand!


From the Daily Beast here:

NBA player Joakim Noah, who was recently traded to the New York Knicks from the Chicago Bulls, is skipping a team dinner with Army cadets at West Point because he would have felt “uncomfortable” due to his opposition to war. The Knicks are holding their training camp at the U.S. Military Academy there this year. “It’s hard for me a little bit—I have a lot of respect for the kids here fighting—but it’s hard for me to understand why we go to war and why kids have to kill kids all around the world,’’

There’s great money in killing for those who traffic in that world.  Guns, bombs, bullets, airplanes, tanks, feeding soldiers, etc.  However, nobody is going to come out and discuss the profits of war as the money is all counted quietly.
