Where Did The Anti-War Celebrities Go?

Remember about a decade ago when the United States under President Bush the Younger was contemplating going to war against Saddam Hussein's Iraq, and then actually went through with it, and all kinds of celebrities came out against the war?  Those philosophers from the acting and music industries came out and gave us their words of wisdom, such as:
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.
You can’t beat your enemy anymore through wars; instead you create an entire generation of people revenge-seeking.
War is failure! When you are at war, you have failed!
The people who said those things don't seem to be around these days as President Obama contemplates launching a strike against Syria.  In fact, Buzzfeed thinks that they "may have been kidnapped."  Click the link to find out who provided the three quotes above, along with 11 other MIA anti-war celebrities.
