dick Sherwin -

Apparently you misinterpret the desire for humane treatment of God's
creatures (in this case humans) and expressed support for international
laws, such as the those enacted at the various Geneva Conventions, as a sign
of "softness".  You couldn't be further from the truth.

These attributes as reflected by Sunil's postings (as well as many others)
on V2020 echo the spirit of yet another pledge.

>From http://www.notinourname.net/pledge_about.html:

Perhaps you would prefer reading along as Saul Williams orates . . .

"The Pledge of Resistance"

"We believe that as people living 
in the United States it is our 
responsibility to resist the injustices 
done by our government, 
in our names 

Not in our name 
will you wage endless war 
there can be no more deaths 
no more transfusions 
of blood for oil 

Not in our name 
will you invade countries 
bomb civilians, kill more children 
letting history take its course 
over the graves of the nameless 

Not in our name 
will you erode the very freedoms 
you have claimed to fight for 

Not by our hands 
will we supply weapons and funding 
for the annihilation of families 
on foreign soil 

Not by our mouths 
will we let fear silence us 

Not by our hearts 
will we allow whole peoples 
or countries to be deemed evil 

Not by our will 
and Not in our name 

We pledge resistance 

We pledge alliance with those 
who have come under attack 
for voicing opposition to the war 
or for their religion or ethnicity 

We pledge to make common cause 
with the people of the world 
to bring about justice,
freedom and peace 

Another world is possible 
and we pledge to make it real."

It truly is just that simple, dick Sherwin.
