Kwame the dove 

While Detroit’s City Council has joined about 100 local governments nationwide in stating opposition to war in Iraq, we at News Hits were curious about the stand of Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. He put our question to rest recently while speaking at Little Rock Baptist Church. Kilpatrick told the congregation the proposed war with Iraq is no different than the Vietnam War, when America went into a small country “when the world said, ‘Don’t go there.’”

This time around, he told the congregation, “God’s people are going to have to stand up and say something.”
