How determined a fighter would you be, if of your 100 relatives, friends, and neighbors,  46 were dead, refugeed, wounded, or unemployed, or 12,548.910 out of the Iraq nation of 27,499,638.  If each of those 12.5 million harmed Iraqis influenced just two friends to dislike Americans, we would lose 91% of the hearts and minds of the nation.

Moms like Cindy Sheehan need WSC legislation passed

If the nation wants fewer Camp Casey’s and grieving moms in its future, then create law that gives the nation a patriotic, peaceful, productive service that reduces misunderstanding, ignorance, suffering, terrorists, and uniformed policies. Push Congress to pass the citizen-initiated World Service Corps proposals into law.

 

Leading the world by example, Dwayne Hunn, Marin IJ, December 25, 2006

HOW SHOULD we behave as a nation? This is what Andy Rooney had to say on "60 Minutes" on Sept. 10:

"Americans are puzzled over why so many people hate us. We seem so nice to ourselves. They do hate us though. We know that and we're trying to protect ourselves with more weapons.

"We have to do it, I suppose, but it might be better if we figured out how to behave as a nation in a way that wouldn't make so many people in the world want to kill us."

General Zinni's Warriors +America's World Service Corps = World Stability  By Dwayne Hunn, June 15, 2006 Indy News.

In his book, Battle Plan for Peace, General Zinni proposes non-military strategies to achieve ultimate victory – stability. People’s Lobby citizen-initiated American World Service Corps (AWSC) proposed congressional legislation provides the cost-effective winning strategy that builds worldwide stability. It’s our most cost effective investment in reducing terrorism, hatred, ignorance, and poor policies. http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2006/06/15/18280822.php

We will not win the global struggle against extremism or the terror war mouthing brave, nice phrases. Millions of good deeds produced by teams of can-do Americans will win it. Those actions can be performed with passage of the citizen-initiated Congressional World Service Corps proposals, which needs your grassroots support.

Winning Constitutional strategy for Scott Ritter... and Sun Tzu  Daily Kos, May 30, 2008.  Dwayne Hunn.  

Unfortunately, restating the Constitution does not provide anti-war activists, political parties, progressives, etc., a strategy that produces a character-rich public policy, which would only rarely include warring.

 

Winning strategy for Scott Ritter, Sun Tzu, and our Constitutional goal of promoting the general welfare, Op-Ed News.  Digg News by Dwayne Hunn

Americans are capable of building a strategy to change the character of America’s public policy to one that successfully wages peace via pushing People’s Lobby’s citizen-initiated American World Service Corps (AWSC) Congressional Proposals. For a nation founded on “We the people...” citizen-initiated legislation should become more commonplace.

If Poland invaded America because Columbia killed 3,000 Polish citizens and then killed, wounded, created refugees, and made unemployed 46% of America’s population, would you secretively and openly harbor hatred for any Poles who continued occupying America?

How many others would you influence to harbor similar emotions?

Scared, broke, and still marching to stupid wars… Indy Bay News by Dwayne Hunn Friday Sep 7th, 2007 12:18 PM

We fall into wasteful wars because too few citizens understand domestic and world needs. Our most indelible educations come from first hand experiences. Moving Americans from bumper sticker analysis into meaningful world service does more than screeching complaints about the State of the World. Pressing Congress to enact PLI’s American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals provides indelible learning educations.
