The warped view of Christian Peacemaker Teams

The pacifists at Christian Peacemaker Teams have a seriously warped view of the kidnapping of four of their members.

American and British aggression in Iraq is to blame for the hostage-taking of four pacifists, including two Canadians paraded on international television through al-Jazeera video footage, the Christian Peacemaker Teams said Tuesday.


"We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. governments due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people," Christian Peacemaker Teams said in a statement.

In the strange viewpoint of CPT, the actual kidnappers seem to accrue no blame, and they'll certainly not accept any responsibility themselves for voluntarily sending team members into obviously dangerous places just to promote their political ideology.
