Of course I wish for peace, but I feel that the "I wish for peace" meme is a bit, well, wishy washy. Peace is an easily twisted word, and invoking it is just crying for the reply "We all wish for peace, but big grownup people like George W Bush need to wage war so we can all have peace - don't worry your head about why." Also I don't 'wish' for peace as if I was rubbing a lamp - I believe and argue about it.

So I'd prefer to say "I believe in not bombing the fuck out of anyone in any way, especially in Iraq right now where there is no plausible excuse for doing so."

Hear hear. It also smacks rather of saying 'why can't people just all be nice to each other?' without looking at history and context.
