Former Ambassador Bolton: Let me turn now to the question of Iran and what I think the situation is there. The Security Council just passed a resolution. The resolution that the Security Council passed at the end of last month imposing certain limited sanctions on Iran, obviously the product of a long effort based on Iran's refusal to comply with the earlier Security Council resolution that gave them until August 31st to cease their uranium enrichment activities. I'd have to say because I'm a private citizen and therefore a free man again, and these are my personal views, now, that this sanctions resolution is very disappointing. It is not as tough as I would have liked to have seen it. In many respects the Russians did an outstanding job from their point of view in protecting Iran, in narrowing the scope of the sanctions, in limiting the effectiveness, I think, of many of the things that we wanted to try and do to prevent the Iranians from continuing to make progress on their nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
I think the Iranian reaction to the sanctions resolution has been very telling in that respect, although they've passed a resolution in parliament to re-evaluate their relation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, they have not rejected the sanctions resolution, they have not done anything more dramatic, such as withdrawing from the nonproliferation treaty, or throwing out inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency, which I actually hoped they would do – that that kind of reaction would produce a counter-reaction that actually would be more beneficial to us.
“They can kill somebody’s body, but they can’t kill love.” - Cindy Sheehan, April 13th at Indianapolis.
Watch Cindy Sheehan at Traprock Peace TV (CounterPunch "website of the day"):
In this powerful and moving video (28:38 minutes), Cindy Sheehan calls for nonviolent revolution, encourages activists and shares her emotions about this war's senseless killings of Iraqis and US soldiers. This is a question and answer session that she gave after her talk at the 3rd Annual Midwest Peace and Justice Summit held at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis, on April 13, 2007.
In Part II of our conversation with Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky, we speak with the two leading dissidents about U.S. wars from Iraq to Vietnam, resistance and academia. Zinn speaks about the importance of Henry David Thoreau and his relevance today. Zinn says soldiers should “read Thoreau’s essay on civil disobedience or take its advice to heart, realize that the government is not holy, but what's holy is human life and human freedom and the right for people to resist authority.” [includes rush transcript]

The Brattleboro stop of the VT Town Meeting Democracy Tour is now edited and ready for distribution. I titled it the "Vermont Impeachment Express" to differentiate it from the other video I am still working on which will have segments from multiple towns on the tour, conversations on the bus and also Ralph Nader describing the uniqueness and significance of New England's Town Meeting. I hope to have that one done in another 10 days or so.
