    US soldiers in Iraq asked to pray for Bush
    Last Update: Sunday, March 30, 2003. 2:55am (AEST)


    They may be the ones facing danger on the battlefield, but US soldiers in Iraq are being asked to pray for President George W Bush.

    Thousands of marines have been given a pamphlet called "A Christian's Duty," a mini prayer book which includes a tear-out section to be mailed to the White House pledging the soldier who sends it in has been praying for Bush.

    "I have committed to pray for you, your family, your staff and our troops during this time of uncertainty and tumult. May God's peace be your guide," says the pledge, according to a journalist embedded with coalition forces.

    The pamphlet, produced by a group called In Touch Ministries, offers a daily prayer to be made for the US president, a born-again Christian who likes to invoke his God in speeches.

    Sunday's is "Pray that the President and his advisers will seek God and his wisdom daily and not rely on their own understanding".

    Monday's reads "Pray that the President and his advisers will be strong and courageous to do what is right regardless of critics".

    I'm telling you, there is no difference between total nutters like Bush junior and Co - the Bush senior White House referred to the Neocons as the "Crazies", Powell according to Woodward recently referred to some of the Neocons in the Pentagon as the "Gestapo Squad" - anyway, those people, personal cowards all of them, with some heavy duty corruption and desire for personal vengeance added in, are no different than religious fanatics that have wrought death and havoc through the ages, or indeed people like Bin Laden right now.

    High time for regime change at home.

    Wednesday is "Pray that our government never lies about a war again, so that 700+ US Soldiers (to date) and 10's of 1000's of others do not have to die."

    thank you Mr Bush :eek: :eek:
     
  7. I would like to change the rules regarding Presidential Candidacy so that no one is able to run for Presidential office unless they have actually been in "active" combat in a War.

    Secretary of State Powell seems to be the only one that has a "consious" regarding this administration's complete bungling of the Iraq and Saddam Hussein situation. Brent Scowcroft, former NSA under Bush Sr. was right all along about the philosophy of "containment" with regards to Saddam, so that we wouldn't divert precious military and intelligence resources away from our figt in Afghanistan and our War on Terror.

    Funny that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee never was briefed by General Garner or anyone else from the Administration about what The Plan would be on post-war Iraq.

    Obviously, there was no plan.
    And it shows.

    How pathetic!
     
  8. TigerO, do you even know what a 'neo-con' is? Or, as this the current fashion, do you just think it's synonymous with 'hawk' (common garden or chicken)?
     
  9. Maybe Bush should pass out those pamphlets to all the Iraqi Muslims who go to prayer... before he bombs the mosques, that is.

  10. I think you are seriously over-reacting. Christians commonly pray for the nation's leaders. It is not political. This devotional booklet was not distributed by the military but by a private religious group.
