Prayer for Our Troops

"The Almighty God has blessed our land in many ways.
He has given our people stout hearts and strong arms with which to
strike mighty blows for freedom and truth. He has given to our country
a faith which has become the hope of all peoples in an anguished world.
So we pray to Him now for the vision to see our way clearly-to see the
way that leads to a better life for ourselves and for all our fellow men—
to the achievement of His will to peace on earth."

--Franklin D. Roosevelt

Remember our troops in prayer today as they battle the enemy all around them. Ask God to lift them up high upon the Rock and protect them with His mighty Right Hand.

From Drudge:

U.S. forces say they have killed 360 Sadr loyalists so far in Najaf. Sadr's spokesmen say far fewer have died in what is the second rebellion by the militia in four months.

So, we'll have to rely on what our soldier and Iraqi bloggers say about the battle to know the usual.

John Kerry: Flip-Flopper of all time!

George F. Will on the subject of Kerry's flip-flops:

"But what's really troubling is the distinct impression that Kerry remains haunted by Vietnam syndrome — which leads one to wonder whether a President Kerry would be prepared, if necessary, to commit to using military force to defend this nation."

NYT has some interesting tidbits about Kerry's flip-flop on the war here.

"So far, his aides and advisers concede, he has failed to get his message across, as Mr. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have mocked his efforts as "a new nuance" that amount to more examples of the senator's waffling."


Iraqi Soldiers are doing their job, insensitively........must make John Kerry angry!

"BAGHDAD - Joint Iraqi Police Service, Iraqi National Guard, and U.S. Special Forces operations in Al Kut, Aug. 11, against Mehdi Militiamen may have broken the back of anti-Iraqi forces in the city, according to the city's governor,The actions came after Iraqi police stations and other government buildings were attacked and overrun in some cases.

The fighting culminated in one area when Iraqi guardsmen and police launched an assault across the Tigris River in a small boat under machinegun fire and retook a key bridge in the city. Iraqi forces continue to hold the bridge."

Read the whole is great news!


More on Stem Cell Research:

Stem cell reporting is usually incorrect.

From a 37 yr.old with Parkinson's disease:

(PRWEB) August 1, 2004 -- "Everyday I read articles and watch newscasts pertaining to President Bush and his "non-support" of stem cells, these are very misleading. There is no total restriction on stem cell research in the United States. The restrictions imposed are for "embryonic stem cell research" only and the policy only restricts utilizing federal funds (our tax dollars) for embryonic stem cell research. Adult stem cell research is open to federal funding , along with some embyronic, and scientists are free to use private funding to pursue embryonic research and have been doing so with great success as seen by the number of Universities opening up research laboratories..
