14 Anti-War Celebrities That Have Gone Strangely Silent

BuzzFeed has put together a list of former anti-war celebrities that haven't said an anti-war word since 2008. Writes BuzzFeed:
Our government is yet again marching us towards a war of choice in the Middle East and our non-partisan, peace-loving celebrities have gone missing since late 2008. We fear the worst.

The list:

 1. Sheryl Crow

“I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies.”
— Sheryl Crow

2. Bruce Springsteen

“War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.”
— Bruce Springsteen

3. Martin Sheen

“But I am equally against the death penalty or war — anywhere people are sacrificed for some end justifying a means.”
— Martin Sheen

  1. They are silent because Obama is not trying to declare war on Syria and because they agree that a missile strike is the appropriate response to Assad's use of chemical weapons on women and children.

    1. Cool story bro.

    2. There is no proof Assad used chemical weapons. Funnily enough, the "red line" set by, not Obama, but the "rest of the world" is actually not supported by the rest of the world. The U.S. is the only nation wanting to strike. If we do attack, we will literally be on the same team as Al Qaeda. There is obviously a reason Obama, and his minions want to attack, but he's a democrat so killing innocent people for your own gain is justified. Hippocrates!!

  2. I think #4, Ed Asner, has come out strongly against the up coming aggression on Syria.

    Most of the others like hanging out with the president too much, and aren't going to ruin that just to make a point.

  3. "Obama is not trying to declare war on Syria"

    "a missile strike(s) is the appropriate response"

    Ah I see, its not a war; its going to be missile strikes! Thanks for making that clear.

    In response to the killing of women and children, the US military needs to kill more women and children?

  4. Re: Asner, he did come out against the attack, but says that a lot of Hollywood hasn't because they don't want to "feel anti-black". That does explain a lot about 2013 America.

  5. Let me see if I understand this correctly. One government uses military grade weapons on another country because they dont like what they are doing. Sounds like declaring war in my mind.
    How do we know who actually used the chemical weapons???
    Stay out of Syria.
