Department of Peace

Apparently a Department of Peace would weaken the nation.

"Left-of-the-left U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich has allied himself with The Peace Alliance and a group of old Vietnam-era war protestors to propose a ridiculous bill to establish a Department of Peace. First, this is the role of our State Department, and the last thing we need is another federal bureaucracy to meddle and muddy the responsibilities of the secretary of state.

Even scarier is that this group, no matter how well intentioned, plans to "provide support for the armed forces: information, education and technology. The department will teach conflict resolution skills and train civilian peacekeepers." That's all code for further feminization of the military. No one hates war worse than those who fight in them, but the military must maintain a warrior ethos. This includes training to fight, killing the enemy with overwhelming force and achieving victory in combat - not "conflict resolution." The latter is for diplomats, not the military."

I don't have an opinion about the feminization of the military. I did not serve. All I can think about, though, is if the military is feminized, I want those uniforms!!!!!!!
