blessed are the peacemakers

President George W. Bush announced that he's sending more than 20,000 additional troops to Iraq, and said the U.S. erred by not deploying more forces when sectarian violence began spiraling out of control last year.

"This is a dangerously wrong-headed strategy that will drive America deeper into an unwinnable swamp at a great cost. We cannot escape the reality that there will be no military solution in Iraq." - Republican Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel, reacting to President Bush's speech recommending an additional 20,000 troops be sent to Iraq.

God will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.

Every warrior's boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Come Prince of Peace!!
