Hawks Want Peace

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

A baby hawk

wants to walk

with all the other birds

at the feeding station

he watches from afar

high in the trees

he flys down

and lands in the bath

but he is too big for the bowl

he hops to the tree branch

all white, a sparkle in his eye

‘ Maybe tomorrow.’ he thinks

‘Maybe tomorrow they will play with me.’

A baby hawk watches all the small birds play

with a smile in his heart,

====================

Based on a true event in my garden

PEACE IS THE NATURAL STATE OF THE UNIVERSE and prosperity of all kinds follow…..

Senator: White House Simply Doesn’t “Want Public to Know” Scope of CIA Torture

Members of Intelligence Committee say White House is stalling release of torture report as high-level disagreement over what American people can know about abuses by CIA reaches boiling point; Transparency advocates tell lawmakers with access to report, ‘Just read it into the record.’

 by

“[The report] makes a lot of people who did really bad things look really bad,” Rockefeller continued, “which is the only way not to repeat those mistakes in the future.”
====

Earlier this week, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), also member of the committee, characterized the CIA’s arguments for leaving the report heavily redacted “ludicrous.”

 Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) said the version under discussion would leave all but 15 percent of the report blacked-out. “Try reading a novel with 15 percent of the words blacked out—” Heinrich said. “It can’t be done properly.”

==

Rockefeller said the administration’s unwillingness to use aliases reflects a broader contempt for congressional oversight.

“The White House doesn’t want to release this. They don’t have to. And all we do is oversight, and they’ve never taken our oversight seriously,” he said. (He then added that he did allow for one exception, the Church Committee.)    
“Under Bush there was no oversight at all. Remember the phrase, ‘Congress has been briefed’? What that meant was that I and our chairman […] and two comparable people in the House had met with [former Vice President Dick] Cheney in his office for 45 minutes and given a little whirley birdie and a couple charts.”

Flash Story Challenge – Finish The Story Below – It Could Be The Beginning Middle Or End! You Decide…..

“Let’s see, ” Henry said to Sheila . “We got rid of the CIA, replacing it withThe Solar Invention Agency.”
” Yes,” she said ” That was one of our most popular moves.”
” Un huh. Then I believe, we replaced the NSA with The National Conservation Agency.”
” Isn’t tha run by President Carter? ”  Sheila said looking over the spreadsheet.
“Yes, he was very happy to launch that project – even though he is 99 he’s still kicking the ball around. ” Sam laughed to himself. “And now we ar working on  dismantling the FBI in favor of the Federsal Bureau of Peace.”
Sheila handed Sam a stack of papers.   ”  Now this change in particular has been getting a lot of press.  The phone calls and emails are 50 in favor and 2 complaining.  Looks like another win, win.”…..

Former Generals Back Peace For Israel And Palestine

100 ex-generals to Bibi: Reach a Palestinian, regional accord now

Security makes a comeback in peace. If the generals avoid mistakes of the past and put action behind words, they could have an impact.

It is not the first time I have heard senior security figures insist that Gaza and the West Bank must be resolved in an integral way for a diplomatic resolution to advance security. (Gen. Sharoni, like many others, avoids the term “peace,” because he doesn’t believe that idealized peace with Arab states will be achieved any time soon.)

But the overriding theme is that a two-state diplomatic resolution is the real means to security in the region. “The wisdom of leadership is to realize the limits of force.

You need to know that there are limits to force,” said Gen. Sharoni.

Flags, What They Mean

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

TALK ABOUT IT

She stepped on people’s toes
not to oppose
but because she supposed
that she lived in a democracy
where even dancing on toes
was expected
even from the elected
because to be free
one needs a sea of voices
that
talk talk talk about peace
freedom,
about what ain’t right
so wave that flag and….. talk !

(To me the flag is a symbol for the constitution what the flag is based on.)

==================================

According to the United States Flag Code, the Pledge of Allegiance reads:[3]

==

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
==

from http://www.wikipedia.org

================================

Every day I went to school from, first to sixth grade, we spoke that pledge before starting  class.

 

 

PEACE
