UN Ambassador speaks of the hidden genocide against the Somali people

The UN envoy to Somalia, Ahmedou Ould Abdallah, has said there is a "hidden genocide" taking place in the country. Left unsaid is that it is the United States of America that is responsible for this genocide, but at least the reality of the massacre was broadcast to the world so that hopefully some action might be taken, Somalia facing 'hidden genocide' What does it say about the character of the American people what they have done to Somalia? 5821

A quick look at the Pretend for Peace Donkeys- Barack, Jimmy, Al, and Dennis

The Republicans love war and that is all there is to it. But what about the Democratic Party crowd and their Pretend for Peace Donkeys? They got the US population snookered most of the time so what are they really doing to end the US government wars? Let's go visit the Carter Center and other sites of these donkeys and see what they have to say about the War Against the Iraqi people, which has been going on now for YES, some 17 years or so! Kind of a relevant issue one might think? 5677

US corporations foist religious pacifism on Palestinians and not on Israelis

The US corporate community does big business annually with the Jewish Israeli military-industrial armaments crew to the tune of billions per year, but then turns around and funds religious pacifist values off onto the oppressed Palestinians! U.S. steers young Palestinians to pacifism by Karin Laub, Associated Press Now doesn't that just take the cake? You can bet, too, that the US 'Peace'crats just lap this stuff up, just like many do with their often playing along with the military's 'We're Green Campaign'. 5647

The United Nations pushes war and starvation onto the peoples of Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Congo, and Haiti

Aid workers: Hungry kids dying in Haiti- At least 26 malnourished children have perished; scores others treated You saw that picture of the starving young girl in Haiti in the US media last week as they reported the rise of starvation inside Haiti post this year's hurricane season. They didn't mention though that the United Nations is overseeing this starvation on behalf of the United States government. 5613

‘Peace’crats refuse to be ‘United for Peace and Justice’

United for Peace and Justice is the national group that pretends to be the leadership for 'Peace' inside the US, yet they cannot even bring themself to speak out against the US war upon the people of Afghanistan! I call them 'Peace'crats because they talk about PEACE in the abstract all the time, yet remain totally tied to the Democratic Party and do not actively oppose the war of US occupation of Afghanistan or speak out forcefully against it! They don't want to embarrass Barack Obama and the Democratic Party and that is important to them above all else. 5610

PPJPC office now only hoping for peace

COLORADO SPRINGS- They couldn't endorse Obama as the Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission, so the leadership closed their office and let the Obama campaign move in. The proverbial jury can now only pin its hope that the Democrats will promise peace, but the PPJPC office is no longer in the business. The staff and board have abandoned its membership, who represented a profound core of the local peace community.

PPJPC exits stage left, lily-livered left

COLORADO SPRINGS- Oh How Sad! After a long and storied legacy, the Pikes Peak Justice & Peace Commission is closing its doors. Why now --a time of rising injustice and vanishing peace on every continent?! Technically they've only announced divestment of their goods in order to move into a tiny office, but the PPJPC is also postponing all activity until after the election. The next event planned is a victory celebration of "regime change" even though the presumptive new regime has promised escalations of war in Asia, Africa and South America, and continued economic class war at home. And it gets worse. 5124

America’s liberal ‘Peace Community’ remains apathetically pro-war

America's liberal 'Peace Community' remains apathetically pro-war, which explains why most are planning to vote for Pro-war candidate, Barack Obama. Far from being non-mainstream Americans 'liberals', are just as pro-war as their Republican counterparts are despite some occassional bleatings about 'Peace' in the abstract, and temper tantrums that the US has not won the invasion and occupation of Iraq just quite yet. 4037

Justice and Peace takes out its teeth

Time for bed. Purportedly to comply with the Pride parade organizers, and although antiwar slogans abounded in the progressive crowd, the PPJPC pushed a single message: themselves!   Notice anyone paying attention? 3809

Should PPJPC be organized differently?

The PPJPC is not working out as it is presently organized. Currently it is organized as a non-profit corporation, has 3 paid staff members, and is run by a Board of Directors who are answerable to nobody other than themselves, because they the group as a whole simply has no membership meetings. That's right. The group has no membership meetings and is run from top down. 3754

UN Security Council sanctions against Iran are an illegal act of war

In a clear indicator that the UN Security Council is now a criminal conspiracy controlled by the US government and it's European imperialist allies, the 'Security Council' has committed yet another criminal act of war by earlier having passed economic sanctions against Iran. War is waged on many fronts, and economic boycotts called for from Washington DC is one of the most egregious ways of waging war. 3592

Eugene Debs about Jesus Christ

The great American socialist Eugene Debs had this to say about Jesus Christ and those who would convince others that Christ was a turn the other cheek, milquetoast pacifist. 3584

Torture by America, Mayor Lionel Rivera, and the Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission

The issue of how the US government under the Bush Administration, with the help of its Democratic Party and Republican Party collaborators, has legalized and openly allowed the use of torture despite it being internationally illegal is a big issue in our country. Many Americans are up in arms about this, and rightly so. One of the first duties that the pro-Peace/ antiwar community must do is to fight to end governmental use of torture on prisoners held. Common sense guides us on this one. We have to stop open US governmental use of torture NOW. 3561
