MSNBC: There's Nothing Beautiful about War

Sign our petition to tell MSNBC there is nothing beautiful about war, destruction, and death. Let’s show them what beauty really is. The beauty of people coming together to demand truth and justice and fairness and peace. The beauty of resistance.


There is nothing beautiful about war! You and the rest of the mainstream media should be covering the humanitarian crisis in Yemen instead of waxing poetic about the beauty of Tomahawk missiles. You should be calling for humanitarian aid, diplomacy, and a U.S. budget that supports children, education, and the environment over military spending, bombs, and war. As the voice of our society, have a responsibility to support and amplify not the drumbeat of war, but the movements for peace and diplomacy and the humanitarian needs of children in Yemen, Syria, and more.

    Nothing beautiful about missile attacks, and death. Please wake up and do responsible. journalism. Trump’s irresponsible impulse attack needs real analysis – not movie reviews. shame on you Brian. Please apologize – to your viewers, and to the Syrian people of all stripes.

    Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

    DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, speech Apr. 16, 1953

    War settles nothing.

    DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, Quote Magazine, Apr. 4, 1965

    I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity.

    DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, speech, Jan. 10, 1946

    Reducing the military budget is the best legacy we can leave for coming generations. Ronald Reagan

    Brian, your comments strike me as sad, narrow-minded, egregiously violent and out of touch with the perspective we need to climb out of the mess we’ve gotten ourselves in. I would think that given your past forays into hyperbole that you might self-moderate a bit more, and leave editorializing to the side…

    Very irresponsible for broadcast news reporters to ever describe warfare as beautiful ! Such a disservice to the public — its effect is to legitimize killing.

    The big sell is the big lie. There is nothing beautiful about death and destruction and the bombing of anyone is immoral and ugly.
