So there I was (Robert) reading newsweek. Well I got the this liberal writer on the last page who in her arguement declared we needed to pull out of Iraq tommorow. The casualities are to high she says. We can't win the war she says. Britain is pulling out so that shows we need to get out she goes on to say more. Arggg so frustrating for me. Im just apologizing in advance if this runs long in length but this definitly struck my nerve in the wrong way.
First of all, 3151 American troops have died in this Iraq war. It seems like a lot. But let's consider somethings shall we? In one month of fighting on Iwo Jima, 6800 marines/navy personell were killed. About 12000 people died on Okinawa. Or for some people out there who think this is vietnam all over again, 1.1 northern vietnamese died in the war. And they won. The US lost 58,000. Most veterans would be very upset if you compared this war to Vietnam. Now if some liberal authors out there would go out and read some world history, they might learn something. Just one example here, in the battle of Verdun in World War 1 over 300,000 French and German troops died. Wow, if these vets were still alive they would be ashamed of the claims that these people make about how the casualties have gone too far. Let's put this Iraq war in perspective.
Ok, to clear myself up one little bit, I dont think we need to die more or something to call this a serious war. This is a serious war we have going on right now. Not only in a military sense but in a civilian sense. Another 9/11 would happen in a matter of weeks if we pulled out of Iraq anytime soon. So we can either have military dying serving there country doing what they CHOSE to do. Or we can bring the fight to our homeland and watch non combatants (civilians) suffer at the hand of terrorists. You make the choice.
As a member of the military, I think about my brother/sisters in arms all the time who are fighting over there. I pray for them just as much. And I think about how this is a safer nation now. My base commander always says ," We can either fight the battle there on our terms, or fight the battle here on there terms." I choose to go to there house and win. thats just me though.
On the other hand (once again a perspective thing) just today 126000 babies were killed worldwide. By the way, 3700 of those are happening in the US. So for every minute you read this 2.5 babies are murdered here in America land of the free. By the way, do you think those babies would enjoy those freedoms? If your pro choice why dont you give your baby a choice? Whats even scarier is that 37.4% of all abortions are done by Protestant women. I want you to think about the first time you held a newborn baby. Now imagine killing that new baby. It breaks my heart. It almost hurts me to type it because the thought disturbs me that much. We as brothers and sisters in Christ need to stand up for this.
If anyone would like to discuss the above issues i am open any time and anywhere. If you have had an abortion, realize that you can be forgiven for your sin. There is a Creator who loves you more then anything this world can. He wants to have a relationship with you. Surrender to Jesus Christ and confess your sins. I pray that our Creator, the Lord of all Creation will bless you all. Remember, the time for salvation is today.
A guy at my work has a baseball sized tumor on his back right inside of his rib cage. It is almost attached to his spinal cord. He is really shook up. Surgery would be really risky being its so close to hise spinal cord. He believes in God and Jesus Christ but believes its all just a good story for us to lives our lives by. His lifestyle in no means reflects a Christian one being he worked as a bartender for a while and i think has 4-5 girlsfriends right now. Pray that God would bless him and that he would see the love that God has to offer him. His first name is Jason.
