I haven't forgotten. I think about it everyday. My brother is in Baghdad now serving with all the other brave men and women prtecting the freedoms that we all enjoy. Our troops are ensuring peace for our children and grandchildren. For that I will always be thankful.
SUPPORT OUR TROOPS
There are 3 ways to do anything in life; Good, Fast, Slow: You can pick any 2.
Forget? Never! Forgive? Yes. But for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is a law of nature and a law of the Spirit. Yep...the Bible says that there is ALWAYS consequences for sin. Three thousand people died at the hands of murderers and their conspirators on 9/11. Murder is sin. There is a consequence for that sin. Sin has consequences even for the forgiven. Not on my say-so...but on God's.
Bad news for Al Quaida and their cohorts...they have screwed the pooch!
No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.
For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.
you think about 9-11 and your brother is in bagdhad?
what does one have to do with the other?
"the troops there ensuring peace for our children and grandchildren."
that fairytale may come true(hopefully), but at this point it is not any more and maybe less likely,than the alternative of this series of actions leading to a constant future reality of terrorism and the abscence of security.
wwe can all say what we wish will be the outcome;but time will tell.not us, or our desire.
so remember....what really is happening and the real causes of the present period of history.
and try not to repeat the same arrogant ego-centric mindset that fostered this in the first place.
Seems to me that the real ongoing anti-terrorist action isn't in Iraq, but Afganistan and Pakistan. We hear very little about it now that Iraq has the focus of the media. And how the hell can we forget? It's ongoing!Those that "complain" about stupidity by our troops don't have to be liberals either. Things happen during the heat of the fight. How did those photos get into the hands of the media anyway? Sleep deprivation,a little slappy-slappy and food shortages are normal wartime fare. However, American female troops enjoying a mixup in an iraqi meat cluster in prison is something else - pretty sad.
If a day went by without a problem - there'ld be a problem.
