Human Rights from POAC Gallery This is taken from the Project for the Old American Century, (P.O.A.C.,) One of the best of the websites that list multiple-Must-Read news listings.

"This weekend we'll focus on John Negroponte after some very important headlines -ed"

Very few news sites do a better job than the P.O.A.C., They do need much more exposure, and better support, within this community of us political newshounds, and knowledge-spreaders.

A lot of the more up to date and in depth items that I post here in this blog, I quite often originally found the reference at the P.O.A.C.  It is well worth one's time to visit it daily.

After a short prayer service for peace centered on the Beatitudes, I took the stage and got right to the point. “Now let me get this straight,” I said. “Jesus says, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers,’ which means he does not say, ‘Blessed are the warmakers,’ which means, the warmakers are not blessed, which means warmakers are cursed, which means, if you want to follow the nonviolent Jesus you have to work for peace, which means, we all have to resist this horrific, evil war on the people of Iraq.”

With that, the place exploded, and 500 students stormed out. The rest of them then started chanting, “Bush! Bush! Bush!”
