Blessed Are The Peacemakers
Today in Iraq 22 American Servicemen were murdered by terrorist bastards.
My prayers go out to the wounded and the families of the dead. What did they do to deserve this attack? They were having lunch.
I hope the families find peace and understanding after this loss. As for the terrorists (I will no longer refer to them as insurgents, for they are little more than criminal thugs) I have but one thing to say.
Make your peace with Allah, you'll be seeing him shortly.
To the survivors, I need say nothing more than Godspeed and Good Hunting. They know what to do.
1. To fallen soldiers let us sing
where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
to the mansions of the Lord
2. No more bleeding no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night
just divine embrace, eternal light
in the mansions of the Lord
3. Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard to the angels sleep
All through the ages safely keep
the mansions of the Lord

I am against terrorist atacks on civilians, or terrorist atacks on military people but that are done in such a way as to cause civilian casualties. But I can see no argument that can support that an atack on enemy troops is immoral if they're having lunch. Would you condemn US troops on WW2 if they attacked German troops during their lunch hour? I think not. And let's not forget that those soldiers that were killed are not there just to have lunch. Look for an article called "When deadly force bumps into hearts and minds" from Dec 29th 2004 on the Economist to learn more about how the post-war is being conducted by US troops. Sorry for not having a link.Post a Comment
