What?!?!?! Who says that? No. Peace NEVER equeals war. For all of those people who responded to my other entry about war.... cheers, but still, who says that? Oh right, our president. Thankgod we gave them their counrty back, because we never should have dealed with it in the first place. Think about it, our country is based on Christian values and because of these values we feel that we are more important than anyone. What gives us, the U.S., the right to go over to a country with DIFFERENT BELIEFS and decide that they are wrong about everything.
I am aware that people were suffering over there, but did anyone think that, that may have been the way GOD inteneded it to be? I mean, hey, according to our handy-dandy bible, the creator and father almighty kills people all the time and no one knows why. Maybe, according to their religion, they were doing everything the right way and then we come along and say "nope, sorry, you aren't living life the christian way and therefore we are taking over". I suppose I can respect the fact that other people are trying to spread the word of what they feel should be heard, but....why must their be pain involved.
So many people have been killed in this war, yes, even Americans. But one thing I don't get is when people WANT to be in the arny and then get upset when they have to go to war. Army (n.) A large body of people organized and trained for land warfare. Sooooo, if you are going to sign up for the army, the purpose fo your job is to fight.
And one more thing. For those Christian families who seem to worship regularly and support what they believe in, how can you send your loved ones to KILL other people? Where's the love in that?
A great man once said (Jesus), "You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles". (Mat.5:33-41).
Someone told me that 'they' bombed us in the first place because they wanted what Americans have. If that is the case, and we did turn the other cheek, then we would be totally degraded. I think I am going to relate this war to a fight in middle school. Middle school fights are stupid right? Why not go to peer mediation to get help and work it out? Ok, why can't the world work the same way?
Another person said to me "what if your sister was being held at gun point. You would do whatever it takes to protect from being shot. Right?" But how can you treat a war like your sister. And thos einnocent people...Americans have killed them in this war as well. I don't know if deliberate of by accident, but we have. And that going to war over oil thing? The oil we have in the U.S. wouldn't make as big of a profit as the oil in the middle east would. Might as well go for the one with more money right? Bush was in the oil business, why woulnd't he want to go for the big oil? ::sigh:: This war makes me go grrr.
