Why We Are In Iraq









Comments:
.

My friend, it's time to face a hard,
cold fact. Militant Islam wants to
kill us just because we're alive and
don't believe as they do. They've
been killing us for decades. So it's
time to stop pretending these terrorist
incidents are mere episodic events and
face the reality that our way of life is in
grave danger. This threat is not just going
to go away because we choose to ignore it.

Some say we should try diplomacy. Yeah,
well, tell me, how do we negotiate with
people whose starting point is our death?
Ask them to wait for ten years before they
kill us? When good negotiates with evil,
evil will always win and peace follows
victory, not words issued by diplomats.
But some Americans, sadly, not interested
in victory, and yet they want us to believe
that their behavior is patriotic.

Well, it's not. When the critics are more
interested in punishing this country over
a few incidents at Abu Ghraib and
Guantanamo Bay than they are in defeating
those who want to kill us; when they seek
to destroy a foreign surveillance program
which is designed to identify those who
want to kill us and how they intend to do it;
when they want to grant those who want to
kill us U.S. constitutional rights, I don't call
that patriotic. Patriotism is rallying behind
the country, regardless of party affiliation
to defeat Islamofascism. Patriotism is
supporting our troops in the battlefield,
not undermining the mission and morale.
Let there be no doubt about this: America
will prevail. We're the same country that
survived a bloody civil war, defeated the
Nazis and the Soviets. Each generation has
a responsibility to the next, our generation
will not disappoint.

A DEADLY KINDNESS


AT GITMO, PC RULES LET QAEDAS PLOT ON
RICHARD MINITER





September 15, 2006 -- GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA

ON the military plane back from America's most fa mous terrorist holding
pen, the in-flight film was "V for Vendetta," a screed that tries to justify
terrorism. It was a fitting end to a surreal, military-sponsored trip.

The Pentagon seemed to be hoping to disarm its critics by showing them how
well it cares for captured terrorists. The trip was more alarming than
disarming. I spent several hours with Rear Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., who
heads the joint task force that houses and interrogates the detainees. (The
military isn't allowed to call them "prisoners.")

Harris, a distinguished Navy veteran who was born in Japan and educated at
Annapolis and Harvard, is a serious man trying to do a politically
impossible job. I spoke with him at length, and with a dozen other officers
and guards, and visited three different detention blocks.

The high-minded critics who complain about torture are wrong. We are far too
soft on these guys - and, as a result, aren't getting the valuable
intelligence we need to save American lives.

The politically correct regulations are unbelievable. Detainees are entitled
to a full eight hours sleep and can't be woken up for interrogations. They
enjoy three meals and five prayers per day, without interruption. They are
entitled to a minimum of two hours of outdoor recreation per day.

Interrogations are limited to four hours, usually running two - and (of
course) are interrupted for prayers. One interrogator actually bakes cookies
for detainees, while another serves them Subway or McDonald's sandwiches.
Both are available on base. (Filet o' Fish is an al Qaeda favorite.)

Interrogations are not video or audio taped, perhaps to preserve detainee
privacy.

Call it excessive compassion by a nation devoted to therapy, but it's
dangerous. Adm. Harris admitted to me that a multi-cell al Qaeda network has
developed in the camp. Military intelligence can't yet identify their
leaders, but notes that they have cells for monitoring the movements and
identities of guards and doctors, cells dedicated to training, others for
making weapons and so on.

And they can make weapons from almost anything. Guards have been attacked
with springs taken from inside faucets, broken fluorescent light bulbs and
fan blades. Some are more elaborate. "These folks are MacGyvers," Harris
said.

Other cells pass messages from leaders in one camp to followers in others.
How? Detainees use the envelopes sent to them by their attorneys to pass
messages. (Some 1,000 lawyers represent 440 prisoners, all on a pro bono
basis, with more than 18,500 letters in and out of Gitmo in the past year.)
Guards are not allowed to look inside these envelopes because of
"attorney-client privilege" - even if they know the document inside is an
Arabic-language note written by a prisoner to another prisoner and not a
letter to or from a lawyer.

That's right: Accidentally or not, American lawyers are helping al Qaeda
prisoners continue to plot.

There is little doubt what this note-passing and weapons-making is used for.
The military recorded 3,232 incidents of detainee misconduct from July 2005
to August 2006 - an average of more than eight incidents per day. Some are
nonviolent, but the tally includes coordinated attacks involving everything
from throwing bodily fluids on guards (432 times) to 90 stabbings with
homemade knives.

One detainee slashed a doctor who was trying to save his life; the doctors
wear body armor to treat their patients.

The kinder we are to terrorists, the harsher we are to their potential
victims.

Striking the balance between these two goods (humane treatment,
foreknowledge of deadly attacks) is difficult, but the Bush administration
seems to lean too far in the direction of the detainees. No expense spared
for al Qaeda health care: Some 5,000 dental operations (including teeth
cleanings) and 5,000 vaccinations on a total of 550 detainees have been
performed since 2002 - all at taxpayer expense. Eyeglasses? 174 pairs handed
out. Twenty two detainees have taxpayer-paid prosthetic limbs. And so on.

What if a detainee confesses a weakness (like fear of the dark) to a doctor
that might be useful to interrogators, I asked the doctor in charge, would
he share that information with them? "My job is not to make interrogations
more efficient," he said firmly. He cited doctor-patient privacy. (He also
asked that his name not be printed, citing the potential for al Qaeda
retaliation.)

Food is strictly halal and averages 4,200 calories per day. (The guards eat
the same chow as the detainees, unless they venture to one of the on-base
fast-food joints.) Most prisoners have gained weight.

Much has been written about the elaborate and unprecedented appeal process.
Detainees have their cases reviewed once a year and get rights roughly
equivalent to criminals held in domestic prisons. I asked a military legal
adviser: In what previous war were captured enemy combatants eligible for
review before the war ended? None, he said.

America has never faced an enemy who has so ruthlessly broken all of the
rules of war - yet never has an enemy been treated so well.

Of Gitmo's several camps, military records show that the one with the most
lenient rules is the one with the most incidents and vice versa. There is a
lesson in this: We should worry less about detainee safety and more about
our own.

Some 20 current detainees have direct personal knowledge of the 9/11 attacks
and nearly everyone of the current 440 say they would honored to attack
America again. Let's take them at their word.

"Who is this who darkens
counsel by words without
knowledge? Now prepare
yourself like a man; I will
question you, and you shall
answer Me.

"Where were you when I
laid the foundations of the
earth? Tell Me, if you
have understanding. Who
determined its measurements?

Surely you know! Or who
stretched the line upon it?
To what were its foundations
fastened? Or who laid its
cornerstone, When the
morning stars sang together,
And all the sons of God
shouted for joy? "Or who
shut in the sea with doors,
When it burst forth and
issued from the womb;
When I made the clouds
its garment, And thick
darkness its swaddling
band; When I fixed My
limit for it, And set bars
and doors; When I said,
'This far you may come,
but no farther, And here
your proud waves must stop!'

"Have you commanded the
morning since your days began,
And caused the dawn to know
its place, That it might take hold
of the ends of the earth, And
the wicked be shaken out of it?
It takes on form like clay under
a seal, And stands out like a
garment. From the wicked
their light is withheld, And
the upraised arm is broken.

"Have you entered the springs
of the sea? Or have you walked
in search of the depths? Have
the gates of death been
revealed to you? Or have
you seen the doors of the
shadow of death? Have
you comprehended the
breadth of the earth?

Tell Me, if you know all this.

"Where is the way to the
dwelling of light? And
darkness, where is its
place, That you may
take it to its territory,
That you may know
the paths to its home?

Do you know it,
because you were
born then, Or because
the number of your days
is great? "Have you
entered the treasury
of snow, Or have you
seen the treasury of hail,
Which I have reserved
for the time of trouble,
For the day of battle
and war? By what way
is light diffused, Or
the east wind scattered
over the earth?

"Who has divided
a channel for the
overflowing water,
Or a path for the
thunderbolt, To
cause it to rain
on a land where
there is no one,
A wilderness in
which there is no
man; To satisfy
the desolate waste,
And cause to spring
forth the growth of
tender grass?

Has the rain a
father? Or who
has begotten the
drops of dew?

From whose
womb comes
the ice? And the
frost of heaven,
who gives it birth?

The waters harden
like stone, And the
surface of the deep
is frozen. "Can you
bind the cluster of the
Pleiades, Or loose the
belt of Orion? Can you
bring out Mazzaroth in
its season? Or can you
guide the Great Bear
with its cubs? Do you
know the ordinances of
the heavens? Can you
set their dominion over
the earth? "Can you lift
up your voice to the clouds,
That an abundance of water
may cover you? Can you
send out lightnings, that they
may go, And say to you,
'Here we are!'? Who
has put wisdom in the mind?

Or who has given understanding
to the heart?

Who can number the clouds
by wisdom? Or who can pour
out the bottles of heaven,
When the dust hardens in
clumps, And the clods cling
together?

"Can you hunt the prey for
the lion, Or satisfy the appetite
of the young lions, When they
crouch in their dens, Or lurk
in their lairs to lie in wait?

Who provides food for
the raven, When its young
ones cry to God, And
wander about for lack
of food?

Verse of the Day



* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

P U R P O S E
But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16


When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
