A group calling itself the Swords of Truth Bridgade, have kidnapped 4 Christian peace activists in Iraq.
They have threatened to kill them unless prisoners in U.S. and Iraqi detention centers are released.
This is going to end badly.
The Swords may not realize this – but the people in charge and the powerful Religious Right DON’T LIKE PEACE ACTIVISTS.
I’m sure Bush would gladly hand them Cindy Sheehan if given the chance.
Bill O’Reilly would gladly hand them the entire city of San Francisco.
For those in charge of keeping the prisoners in the US and Iraq, the folks that the Swords are trying to appeal to, they couldn’t have chosen less desirable people to threaten the lives of.
I mean, clearly there was a lack of planning.
For example: if you want to piss off the Religious Right, just mention that Jesus was a pacifist. It makes them nuts. If they don’t try to kick your ass they’ll declare a war on you, just like they’ve done with Christmas.
The only people that would re-act and do something if a peace activist’s life was threatened, are other peace activists. And their whole message is NOT doing something.
Anyway, I think we all know what happens to people that talk about peace.
