Congres Voted Unanimosly to Insult the UN & for more Tension with Iran.

Massive Change. I can’t understand Elizabeth Warren going along with banning Iranian UN Ambassador Hamid Abougaleb which both Houses voted with a voice vote. I can’t understand UN supporting groups and most peace groups saying nothing — Antiwar.com is an exception,

Banning Hamid Abougaleb because of his role as a translator during the Iranian Hostage Crisis is senseless because translators are needed in tense situations when hostage takers don’t speak English. and Hamid Abougaleb first role there was translating for a peace maker and second was to helping get the cleaning, cooking and typing staff to be released.
More background information than the above links on the peace efforts,

Smears surround the ACORN story, Benghazi, Civil Right’s Attorney Debo Adegbile’s defeat. Now with Iranian UN Ambassador the smear is close to the opposite of the truth.

The seems to be a snowballing effect from Mumia abu-Jamal to Civil Right’s Attorney Debo Adegbille defeat, Senators who voted for Debo Adegbille, CONTINUED @,

I go on to make concrete suggestions but first we must report to each other that something overwhelming is happening. At the original news blerp at FireDogLake comments are closed

U.S. States Revive Debtors' Prisons

I'm retired in Philadelphia. Non religious but there seems to be a life force that I see as more personal than is usually expressed.

I was raised a Quaker (common with Christian Jewish intermarriage back them) But my father was a total pacifist and during World War II, at the time that being so was difficult.

Upbringing included father trying not to get physical, yet still defend us kids from my harsh stepmother until she got her citizenship papers, after which they could get divorced. Been involved in peace issues since the anti-fallout shelter protests through Vietnam and Iraq.

I wrote "Greedy Little Squirrels and Lifeboat ethics,” 1977, when the Moonies were coming to America and got heavily harassed by them. I also think bin Laden is extremely dangerous like the leader of a barroom brawl, who has been manipulating this country into using the US to get Muslims angry enough to join his suicidal permanent war group. Before 9/11 young Muslims rebelled by wearing by covering their hair a little less than expected and at least winking at each other, now he changed rebellion into being militancy. The Northern Alliance would have been legitimately in charge long ago had he not baited the US into entering Afghanistan.

Obama is making a mistake in my mind with how to stop bin Laden’s dream of permanent war in a divided world but less of a mistake than most anyone else would. If due to currency collapses from out ever more expensive weapons the US stops fighting al Qaeda, then other counties will. If it ends up being Iran, the Sunni Shiite divide will be enormous. Al Qaeda is already convinced that the atheist China is a serious enemy,
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=al9wM3k5zjLQ and the Russians have fought for brutally and inadvertently convinced far more Muslims than the US did that they considered Islam itself to be the enemy.

I never stopped supporting Jimmy Carter when everyone turned on him and I support Obama as well, but think he will have to use a lot more persuasion and less force if they aren’t going to succeed at bankrupting us. However Obama has tried less force and al Qaeda has started to respond in kind trying to limit the victim’s in the way of their primary attacks.
