Lets join together to start "Going For A Global Truce" Peace Think Tank. We can hold telephone conference calls or online meetings weekly.
I was very inspired by TED Talk Independent Diplomat by Carne Ross at:
I never realized I could get involved with the solving many of the problems that exist around the world until I saw this talk and many of the others on TED.
Can we put our minds together and create a "Going For A Global Truce" Peace Think Tank. We can really develop a concrete step byplan that may help reduce conflict on Earth.
In 1928 The world renounced war and signed a pact called the Kellogg Briand Pact. The problem was they deviated from the pact and resorted back to war (WW2 and all subsequent wars). One plan that may be considered is to "go back to the pact" with all countries recommitting to re-sign a new pact agreeing not to use military action as an instrument of foreign relations. The old pact is still on the books. We can update it.
We have a chance now to go for it since The president is calling for our troops to come home. We may avert a WW3 if the countries of the world agree to stop war and implement a cease fire, global truce. Not just for one day but for every day!
Can we suggest a "Going For A Global Truce" cease fire training manual be developed collaboratively in the UN? Lesson plans may be developed in the UN for a voluntary training program for all world leaders to take as part of in an effort to teach how to lead without use of offensive force.
We can suggest all leaders be given a detailed training course through the UN presented by the lawyers of the International Criminal Court to make it very clear what is not legal. War is a series of crimes. I believe we have to keep tryingto come up with a step by step plan to stop humanity from entering into war.
With the UN encouraging world leaders to take an inventory of themselves, the direction of their leadership & how to do a better job interacting with each other thru conflict resolution meetings, talks, hearings.
