PeaceMakers In Iraq

      This is an update of last saturday's news about 'Troops Home Fast' going to Iraq and meeting with Iraqi Officials.   This is outstanding news, which I hope we learn more about in the near future.

Iraqi parliamentarians to discuss peace plan with anti-war hunger strikers

AMMAN (JT) - A group of American anti-war hunger strikers are scheduled to arrive in Jordan today to meet with Iraqi parliamentarians to discuss peacemaking in the war-ravaged country.

During the meeting, the Iraqi officials will brief the activists on a peace plan they have been working on at the National Reconciliation Conference held in Cairo last week. CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin said: "It is a breakthrough for the US peace movement to meet directly with Iraqi parliamentarians working on a peace plan. We hope to return to the US to build support for their plan."

If they're on a hunger strike, how is it that they are able to be out and about. I can guarantee, not eating for even a day or two saps the strength.

Seems these strikers aren't following through on their promise to not eat. Makes me not believe a word they say.

I just hope these peace nuts are portraying themselves as representatives of anything more than a nut group and that they don't represent the American People. That would be a grave misrepresentation and it would also be a violation of the law. They don't officially represent anything more than a group on nuts that think hunger strikes are a valid approach to attempt to sway opinions.
