House Democrats pitch Department of Peacebuilding

Not a joke….but should be. I’m thinking peacedrones!

Jessica Chasmar @ The Washington Times:

California Rep. Barbara Lee and other House Democrats have introduced a bill that would establish a Department of Peacebuilding, which would be responsible for tasks from scaling back U.S. military actions to gang violence to school bullying.

The new department would be led by a Cabinet-level Secretary of Peacebuilding, who would have a seat on the National Security Council, The Hill reports. The department would be “dedicated to peacebuilding, peacemaking, and the study and promotion of conditions conducive to both domestic and international peace and a culture of peace.”

The legislation would have the department create a “peace academy,” and the secretary would create “Peace Days,” encouraging people to “observe and celebrate the blessings of peace and endeavor to create peace on Peace Days.”
