Another way

Here's a faith-based initiative I can get behind.

A group of US and UK church leaders have proposed an alternative plan with respect to Iraq. They have 6 points.

  1. UN to form an international tribunal to indict Hussein
  2. Weapons inspections to be continued and intensified with military support
  3. Foster a new democratic Iraqi government
  4. Organize a massive humanitarian effort NOW for the people of Iraq
  5. Commit to facilitating a settlement between the Palestinians and the Israelis
  6. Continue and reassert measures to combat terrorism

At least on its surface, this sounds like the sort of law-based and multi-national approach that could reasonably counter the unilateral and largely illegal plan of the Bush administration.
