From The Independent
US-British split over Syria

From A conservative blog for peace correspondent Samer al-Batal
An open letter from Thomas Fleming to Michael Novak
One of the best things I've read recently. From Chronicles.

From Robert Fisk, The Independent
Library books, letters and priceless documents are set ablaze in final chapter of the sacking of Baghdad

Samer al-Batal: This is not a good [Western-calendar] Holy Week. God save us from anything like this should Syria be on the receiving end of missiles next. Permit me a little hyperbole: I wouldn't be surprised if a missile hits the Omayyad Mosque and incinerates the body of the Forerunner [St John the Baptist] himself.

From worldnetdaily.com (apparently some evangelical Protestant, Republican Party-oriented news service)
Bush warns Syria: Cooperate, or else
US intent on bringing about major reform in 'terrorist state'

Господи, помилуй.

The stopped clock, again - from the 'peace and justice' type of Catholics
Catholic leader wants Bush to be tried
Says international court should prosecute president as war criminal

'International court'? No, thanks. But invading countries that are no threat to yours is criminal.

And, especially for US Tax Day:
Libertarian Party presents feds’ top 10 money-wa$ters
Besides the Iraq war.

Two Eastern Orthodox neocons
Fr Johannes Jacobse and Frank Schaeffer

Блаженный миротворцы, яко тии сынови Божии нарекутся.

‘OPF draws deeply from the ideology of the secular peace movement—so much so that the two are often indistinguishable.’

Frank Schaeffer has drunk deeply from the ideology of the American neoconservatives, as has the Protestant religious right from which he comes, so much so that the two are often indistinguishable.

Funny, both these guys belong to the Greek Orthodox archdiocese in the US, nominally the country's biggest Orthodox group - the same one that gave a church award to proabortion US Sen. Paul Sarbanes in Maryland.

The OPF:

‘…Saddam Hussein is an enemy of the United States’

He's not a threat to the US.
