Could this unpopular war still be right?

A picture of a soldiers in iraq from militaryunits.com - militaryunits.com is not related to this blog or its content, it is just a cool picture.  :-)I just read an interesting blog standing up for the Iraq war in some ways.

Here is a quote from David Anderson at dovercitizen.blogspot.com:

There is hope. Victory is not a dream; it is an objective we have to work to obtain. Unfortunately, it will take many more tears and American blood. We are indeed tiring, but we will not falter. We will dig deep and show what makes Americans special. We have always risen to the call of history.The problem is that the Democrat leaders are predisposed to accept American failure. Lincoln heard the same voices. He determined to win before the next election. President Bush must do the same because the next President will not be able to. [Read More]

Here is the response I left on his site:

I liked reading your perspective. I found this site through a comment you made on Nick Dupree’s site.

I am not sure if I agree about Rumsfield, but I do believe that George W. Bush is a man with the guts to lead. I have had questions about the Iraq war from the start; but there is no doubt in my mind about one thing – now that we have done it, the only option is victory.

We have to persevere. I am not a politician so I can say “stay the course” and I don’t care if people thinks that means “don’t change strategy.”

Change strategy however much we have to, but we must win!

I am concerned that the Democratic party has staked so much politically on this “disastrous war” that now they have to see us fail in Iraq. I am not saying it is their heart motive, but they have gotten into a corner where to see George W. Bush succeed in Iraq would be a political disaster for them.

God Help Us!

And, if we seek Him, He will.

The World Upside Down

The World Turned Upside DownFeel bad about yourself, go weeping down the aisle at church, pray a prayer. Stop smoking, get a haircut, buy some new clothes, start ushering at church, and for heaven’s sake tithe!

But… Is that it? Is that why Jesus came? So that people can go to Heaven and start shaving their beards and taking showers?

I am so happy to know I am going to Heaven! I am delighted to know God on my inside.

But I know there is more to Christianity than going to Heaven. First of all, there is Knowing God! That is the biggest thing and the meaning of life itself. (John 17:3)

There is also Making God Known. That involves telling people about Jesus, Heaven, and Knowing God.

But there is more! I assert that the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Revelation of the Christian Bible holds the answers to turning this current fallen world upside down! It has answers for our governments, our environment, our business and commerce, our wars, and everything else pertaining to this temporal life and all of society!

Please consider what Landa Cope wrote on her website about what she is discovering about God and the Issues we face in real life on planet earth.

…The program was, perhaps, an hour long and I watched it alone. By the time my English host was done with the Dallas study I was devastated. No one would want to live in a city in that condition. The crime, the decrepit social systems, the disease, the economic discrepancies, the racial injustice all disqualified this community from having an adequate quality of life. And this was the “most Christianized” city in America. I wanted to weep…. [Read More]

I am calling all Christians to Know their God. The True and Good God. The One who is not a figment of our imagination, or someone that we have thought up to make us feel better. He is real! He can be known! Let us delve deeply into our Bibles and into the Heart of the Father of All and learn what we need to do to change every area of life! Let us take Dominion!

Is the government a problem?

My friend Eddie wrote an interesting blog about the Democrat Party and Government Programs. You should check it out!

The American Scratchpad – Participation Required
Somehow, the failure of 90 years of generally overwhelming democratic rule becomes the responsibility of a government hundreds of miles away that has no responsibility for the city to begin with. New Orleans should have been a utopia by now, with all the democratic programs and leftist “equality” systems in place. But alas America’s most crime-ridden city (with a murder rate 8 times the national average and 5 times the number of assaults) has become a beacon for the failed policies of a well-intentioned but unmotivating philosophy. Government cannot be a source of fixing the problem; government is and has been the problem. [Read More]
