Narrow-minded to the End

British and US troops freed three Christian Peacemaker Team activists today. That’s great news. Of course, the terrorists tortured and killed the lone American of the group, Tom Fox of Virginia, just a couple of weeks ago. It’s surprising, in this time of bittersweet joy for the “peace” organization, that they carry on with their narrow-minded thinking:

“We believe that the illegal occupation of Iraq by Multinational Forces is the root cause of the insecurity which led to this kidnapping and so much pain and suffering in Iraq,” Pritchard said.

There’s more of that logic on their web site (linked to above).

Even with one innocent man dead, one who was just trying to help the people of Iraq, and three others with the same fate before the rescue, the “occupation” is the “root cause”. Root cause? I think you need to go back deeper for a root cause…like maybe the fact that a dictator was ruling that country with an iron fist and ordered the murder of thousands of Iraqis. Not to mention harboring terrorists and anyone who wanted harm the US. I won’t get into the whole WMD thing because it’s becoming pretty clear that Hussein wanted us to believe he had them and that strategy backfired.

So, these activists would rather he still be there? Rather than Multinational Forces trying to bring stability, peace, and freedom to the country? That’s pretty absurd.
