Post for PEACE

"The United States has one of the most sophisticated defense systems, the most expensive. But it is made obsolete by a wire cutter. There's no way in which you can have a foolproof system. It's really far better to create friends, rather than to imagine that everybody is an enemy until they are proven otherwise...I keep trying to say, You want to fight a war against terrorism? Let me tell you one thing for sure. You are not going to win it, period. You won't win that war until you work so that conditions that make people desperate are eradicated."

Archbishop Tutu

Happy 4th everybody.

I'm no great fan of Desmond Tutu, but I must admit that I agree with him here.

The wingnuts will respond with the ridiculous refrain "they hate us for our freedom."

Were that true, they should be loving us by now. Looks like Chimpy was wrong.
