Frodo Suggests Peace Department (Again)
Dennis Kucinich, proving once again that he doesn't get it
:"I think it's inevitable that there's going to be departments of peace and non-violence, and not only in the U.S.," said Dennis Kucinich, a Democrat congressman from Ohio.
Supporters of the concept say that peace departments would promote the values of peace just as environment departments --relatively new agencies -- protect the environment.
Kucinich introduced a bill last year that would create a cabinet-level department of peace. Seventy-three members of the U.S House of Representatives have said they would support the legislation.
"All over the world people are looking to establish these structures, and I'll tell you why," said Kucinich. "Because people don't want to live in fear."
The Department of Defense is the Peace Department.
