Will Bush's continued intransigence on U.S. policy in the Middle East drive up impeachment numbers nationwide? Will the Iraq Study Group headed by Baker and Hamilton simultaneously provide cover for Bush to postpone troop withdrawal from Iraq in time for the 2008 election campaign and for the Democrats to continue funding for this catastrophic war?

How do we allow Darfur to continue?
Susan D. Blanding
As a Christian during the season of Advent, I refuse to believe there is nothing the world can do except sit back and watch. I ask myself what difference one person can make. Why do the complexities of politics, money and power limit the moral conscience of the world?
Difficult as a complex problem may be, clearly what is happening in Darfur is wrong. For the love of God, how does one turn a blind eye to the reality of deliberately perpetrated human suffering? (link)
We should get out of Iraq despite the fact that there's suffering beyond measure being experienced by the people there, and we should go into Darfur because there is suffering beyond measure being experienced by the people there.
For the love of God indeed.
