House Concurrent Resolution 450

Dennis Kucinich on Democracy Now, July 26, 2006:

"My role in Congress is to organize members of Congress to show them, the administration, there's another way to deal with problems in the world, other than just violence. You know, you can bomb the world to pieces, but you can't bomb the world to peace.

Michael Franti is -- that's who I got it from, and, you know, Spearhead has done a great job in taking a new message of the potential of peace. And Michael and I talk, and I want to say that what he had to say is relevant today. I mean, there's a type of thinking, Amy, that we have to challenge, this thinking that somehow violence is going to produce peace is -- haven't we learned anything? 100 million people died in wars in the 20th century. We're on a fast track now to have even -- you know, to have great numbers of people die in wars in this century.

Where is our talent for peacemaking? Where is the expectations of our public officials pursuing the science of human relations to show that we're capable of talking to one another to settle our differences, that we don't have to kill each other? I mean, this administration has to have a vision that goes beyond its nose, which says, you know, just, “war, war, war.” They have a talent for war-making. We ask that they have a talent for peacemaking, and that's why I’ve introduced that resolution."
