the yogic wisdom of Sting

From Salon's sidebar:

British rock star Sting on Sunday denounced the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, and urged the world to help reconstruct the war-ravaged nation.

"I wasn't in favor of going into Iraq," the 52-year-old singer said at a news conference in Hong Kong promoting his latest album, "Sacred Love."

Sting said world leaders should now concentrate on picking up "the pieces" and giving the Iraqi people a normal life.

"It's too late to blame anybody. It's too late to complain," he said.

Ayup. I was against the war, as I've noted elsewhere, but I agree we need to put everything behind the current effort-- even more so when our troops remain very much in the line of fire.
