Whether the Counter-Terrorism Doctrine of War declared by President Obama is part of a bigger plan of justice for a humanity that is calling for action against ISIS, or a continuation of the madness occasioned by President Bush's Doctrine of War on Terrorism, is in question.

Let's be clear; no amount of Monday morning quarterbacking and political grandstanding will help. The United States of America once again created in large part this mess ... and so we all are responsible by degree. If you want to know who to blame look in the mirror. You reap what you sow.

The question is: what do we do now? What does humanity do when a band of our brothers goes around the bend? Not just in this instance, but in all instances ... so much of humanity without access to just law.

This is an opportunity for greatness.

Imagine this president going to the United Nations sometime in the spring of 2015 with this Kennedy-like challenge: The Age of Peace 2050 Project.


"My Fellow Human Beings:

"The Universal Bill of Human Rights (UBHR), which was adopted by our grandparents in 1948 was the first expression of global human rights. This Bill of Rights was finalized and signed by a majority of United Nations (U.N.) members in 1976 and in doing so made this Bill international law. It is time to complete the work of Eleanor Roosevelt. Her signature on this Bill is a testament to her will, and the Bill itself is a magna carta for humanity.

"These rights assured to every global citizen by law are the foundation for The Age of Peace.

"I look down the road to when humanity will reap the fruit of global assurance of universal human rights in all lands and all peoples. And what I see is humanity at peace, a world without the need for war, as justice, justly enforced, keeps the global peace. No different than the local village at peace. Justice democratically derived from the people, and justly enforced by the rule of law. This is a humanity at peace.

"It will take time to make the Age of Peace a reality, and so we must take first steps first. Starting tomorrow a committee to transform the United Nations into a World of Nations by 2020, the third step to a civilization grounded in universal human rights. U.N. Charter Article 109 opens that door; failure to go through it and we risk WWIII and the Age of Catastrophe to follow.
