The war is an exceedingly complex set of issues. If only someone were to make a simple guide, that would be very helpful.
If you've never visited mikhaela.net but you have similar political leanings to me (or simply enjoy good, quality entertainment), I suggest that you peruse Mikhaela's terrific comics and maybe her blog, too. She's been referenced by Tom Tomorrow- in fact this comic is at the top of his blog as I write this. It's hard to imagine much higher praise than that, unless you don't like Tom Tomorrow, in which case, why are you reading my blog?
Thank goodness that I have my good friend Matt to boil down the internet and give me just the good stuff.
