Not proud of who we are, but proud of all we are not; being thankful that only byrepparttar grace of God were we born in such a wonderful country ...

And so it is thatrepparttar 125452 American flag, and all it represents, thereby, brings tears to our eyes and humbles our hearts to worship.

Defendrepparttar 125453 poor and fatherless: do justice torepparttar 125454 afflicted and needy. Deliverrepparttar 125455 poor and needy: rid them out ofrepparttar 125456 hand ofrepparttar 125457 wicked.

War in Iraq, Not Sunday School

Written by Gary Revel

Continued from page 1

Too often our troops are ordered to wait until they receive fire from our enemies before they can defend themselves in war. Onrepparttar face of it this handicaps our troops from winning at war. Enemies that have gone to war againstrepparttar 125451 United States are enemies. Their deaths and destruction of their cities should be a given. The treatment of their captured is of no consequence as long as we get information that saves American lives and prevents destruction of our cities.

Wake up people. We are at war with an enemy who even now is planningrepparttar 125452 bombing of major American cities with millions being killed andrepparttar 125453 killing and mutilation of Americans all overrepparttar 125454 world. You cannot play Sunday school with these people if you want to survive. Letrepparttar 125455 military do whatever it needs to do to win this war. Don't punish soldiers for doing what they believe is their job inrepparttar 125456 part they play to win this war. When we train people to kill our enemies and put their lives at risk in a foreign country to dorepparttar 125457 job it is too late to ask them to be nice. That is how you lose a war not how you win.
