but i thought the UN fixed everything...

"The intensifying war of words between Iran and the United States reached the floor of the United Nations last night when the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, accused America and Britain of violating international law." well crap.

"If people have a position on something and you try to argue them into changing it, you're going to strengthen that position. If you want to change people's ideas, you shouldn't try to convince them intellectually. What you need to do is get them into a situation where they'll have to act on ideas, not argue about them."
- Myles Horton [from sojourners]

something else you might want to check out from sojourners is jim wallis's God's politics blog. you know, if you're into that kind of thing.
