My ongoing theme is always the truth, as I see it, and the exposure of lies, deception and manipulation wherever they exist. I remain firmly convinced that the world can no longer resist its innate urge to unite and co-operate with one another and we are very close to the point where war can no longer be an option if this transformation is to occur.

American peace laureate Chris Hedges says it best ~ “The
incursion and bombardment of Gaza is not about destroying Hamas. It is not
about stopping rocket fire into Israel. It is not about achieving peace. The
Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use lethal weapons
of the modern battle field on a largely defenseless civilian population is the
final phase in the decades long campaign to ethnically cleanse Palestinians ~
it's not a war, it's murder." See video http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39314.htm

their innocent slain brothers and sisters in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan ~ as
