.......Cal Thomas shows no respect for peace activist Tom Fox and his colleagues in Iraq:

"The motive of the activists was exposed in a statement from Christian Peacemakers Teams, under whose auspices Fox and others traveled to Iraq. Spokeswoman Jessica Phillips said, 'We believe the root cause of the abduction of our colleagues is the U.S.-and British-led invasion and occupation of Iraq.'

"Strange thing about these peace movements: they rarely mobilize to oppose the killing, torture and imprisonment practiced by dictators. It is only when their own country attempts to end the oppression that the activists become active against America, not the initiators of evil. Peace, like happiness, is a byproduct, not a goal that can be unilaterally attained. Peace happens when evil is vanquished."
