As the peace movement protests President Obama's potentially reckless plunge into the abyss, some elected officials are ignoring the voices of the people. For example, U.S. Ben Cardin voted for this ignoble attack. U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski expressed reservations, but she eventually caved in to the administration's pressure. Also, there is speculation that my representative, Rep. Elijah Cummings, will vote to attack. This is disheartening.
