If you live in Ohio
If you live in Ohio there is an upcoming event that you should look for. :

On September 28th the Tiffin chapter of Pax Christi will present Representative Paul Gillmor’s office with a chain with more than 2700 links, one for each America soldier killed in Iraq and approximately one for every 20 Iraqis killed. The presentation will take place at Rep. Gillmor’s office at 96 S Washington St in Tiffin OH at 3:30 PM on September 28th. Pax Christi will also present Rep Gillmor’s office with the Declaration of Peace. Jesuit priest Fr. John Deat wrote the Declaration of Peace. The Declaration of Peace calls for the following; withdrawal of all US and coalition forces, closure of US military bases, support of an Iraqi led peace process, return of Iraqi control over its oil supply and political and economic life, reparations and reconstruction to address the destruction caused by the war and thirteen years of sanctions, establishing a “peace dividend” for job creation, health care, education, housing and other social needs, increased support for Iraq War veterans and no pre-emptive war with Iran.

Visit their site at: http://www.tiffinpaxchristi.org/

And don't forget to sign the Declaration of Peace.

The Edward R. Murrow of our time
"And anyone who claims that I and others like me are "soft", or have "forgotten" the lessons of what happened here — is at best a grasping, opportunistic, dilettante — and at worst, an idiot — whether he is a commentator, or a Vice President, or a President. " - Keith Olbermann 9/11/06

Mark Wilkerson takes a stand for peace

Today Mark Wilkerson, a 22 year old Army Specialist, held a press conference at Camp Casey. Wilkerson turned himself into Fort Hood after being awol for more than 18 months. He previously served in the 720th Military Police Battalion in Iraq from March 2003 to March 2004. When his request for "Conscientious Objector" status was denied by the Army, he chose to refuse redeployment on moral grounds.

"I am not willing to kill, or be killed, or do anything else I consider morally wrong, for reasons I don't believe in, and now today, I am turning myself in to face the consequences of my actions." - Army Specialist Mark Wilkerson

I was able to shake the hand of this brave American patriot. Peace really does take courage and he definately has a lot of courage. Wilkerson's case will be reviewed by the Army and he could face court martial, discharge, or other repercussions. I encourage anyone reading this to help get the word out about Mark Wilkerson and help support his stand for peace.

The comments are temporarily down. The blog is being hit hard by some spammers so I've taken down the ability to make comments for now. This is only temporary and comments will be allowed again - probably by this evening or tomorrow morning. Sorry for the trouble, but I just have to do something about these spammers.

Bush's "Progress" in Iraq killed over 500 in the past week
BAGHDAD - Suicide bombers and militiamen fought back ferociously in the seventh week of the Baghdad security crackdown, killing at least 508 people in the past six days, but the government vowed Friday it would win the race against terrorism and despair. As the deadly week drew to an end on the Muslim day of rest and prayer, radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr blamed the United States for the violence and called for a huge anti-American demonstration April 9, the fourth anniversary of the fall of Baghdad. Marketplaces in Baghdad, Tal Afar and Khalis stood in ruins. Clean up crews shoveled broken glass and debris into wheelbarrows in bloodstained streets. Bomb victims in wooden coffins were hoisted atop cars and vans for the trip south for burial in the Shiite holy city of Najaf.
Source: Associated Press

At least nine American troops were killed this week - 79 have died this month:

Sgt. Jason W. Swiger, 24
Cpl. Jason Nunez, 22
Pfc. Orlando E. Gonzalez, 21
Pfc. Anthony J. White, 21
Spc. Sean K. McDonald, 21
Master Sgt. Sean M. Thomas, 33
Staff Sgt. Marcus A. Golczynski, 30
Sgt. Curtis J. Forshey, 22
The identity of another U.S. Soldier killed yesterday were not yet released pending notification of relatives.


But according Mrs. Bush:

This is their opportunity to seize the moment—ahhh—to build a really good and stable country. And many parts of Iraq are stable ahh..now. But, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everybody.
