Amazing. As if it wasn't dangerous enough that the born-again fundamentalist Christian President of the United States "talks to a Higher Father" before attacking other countries, we now have his Generals confirming Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is also on speaking terms with God. Wow. If Bush says he is doing Jesus' work, is Rumsfeld the modern St. Peter? Scary. I wonder how the General knew.... It would be ironic if the NSA was listening in to Bush and Rumsfeld conversations with Jesus!
Here's the news item:
"Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Peter Pace defended Donald Rumsfeld yesterday, saying that "the good lord" tells the Secretary of Defense "what is best for our country." Meanwhile, President Bush, Sec. Rumsfeld, and other advisers face an increasingly violent and chaotic situation in Iraq. Said Richard Haass, the former chief of policy planning at the State Department, "The Iraq situation is not winnable in any real sense of the word 'winnable.""
Yeah...? But I am sure we will have some Bush apologists start discussing "What is the meaning of winnnable?"
here's the def. they'll be thinking about:
winnable - adj. you can put a good spin on it.

Wow... Well being you aren't a Christian, that would be why this was written. There are so many ways to take what is given. I am not saying you are wrong, but I still feel that sometimes it is interesting how so many people can discredit and question decisions made by our Commander in Chief. If you have ever been in the military, you understand what security clearances are. He would have the highest security clearance of any one in our country. So there is above Top Secret with Nato Clearing types of clearance this man has to information. He knows more details than we do. From the outside with the media that is biased and doesn't always give the cold hard facts as they really are when reporting.
Understood you are questioning his faith. However, how do you know his God isn't the real one? Will we ever truely know in this lifetime?
Now, we weren't subject to the violence and horrible acts that were happening in Iraq, but if we were and our leader was anything like him, don't you think it would be good for someone to come over and try to help us out of such a situation, especially if the leader of the nation that helps had waged a war on terror after his homeland had been struck and thousands of people had died, just after he came into office.
Now, my little brother feels it is useless for us to still be there because since so many of the people grew up that way, it will never change. Who knows... we all have a right to our opinion.
I think it would be nice to pull out ... and I wonder why we are still there. But... I don't claim to have all the facts and I don't want to be part of the crowd bringing down the morale of the troops.
