Who Would Jesus Bomb

I really like pacifists. They prove that in a safe and complacent society people easily lose touch with reality and learn to live their lives with their heads completely up their asses.
Eight members of the Iowa Occupation Project and Voices for Creative Nonviolence arrived at Huckabee’s Locust St. campaign office early Monday afternoon, waiting for the former Arkansas governor’s reply to a letter delivered two months ago that sought his pledge to completely withdraw from Iraq within 100 days of assuming office; halt all military actions against Iraq and Iran; fund the rebuilding of Iraq as well as health, education and infrastructure needs in the U.S.; and “…the highest quality health care, education and jobs training benefits for veterans of our country’s Armed Services.”

Brian Terrell, director of the Catholic Peace Ministry in Des Moines, said approximately 35 reporters, including a number of international journalists, were at Huckabee’s office during the protest.

Terrell said in addition to the “Who Would Jesus Bomb?” banner, the eight protesters held signs that read, “End Iraq War” and “No War with Iran,” sang the refrain from “Auld Lang Syne,” chanted ‘Who Would Jesus Bomb?’ and then read names of Iraqis and U.S. soldiers killed in the war.
So, I propose a little lesson for these well meaning morons. Let's send them as ambassadors to the really nasty parts of the world. Let's drop them in Iraq or Iran in a nice friendly group of religious extremists. I'm sure they'd appreciate the fact that these people don't want to cooperate or live and let live. With their usual understanding of the world relating to how the US is wrong about everything and the evil cause of most of the worlds ills, I'm sure they'd be wonderfully dead in no time.
