Trying To Help -- Dennis Miller

All the rhetoric on whether or not we should go to war against Iraq has got my insane little brain spinning like a roulette wheel. I enjoy reading opinions from both sides but I have detected a hint of confusion from some of you. As I was reading the paper recently, Iwas reminded of the best advice someone ever gave me. He told me about the kiss method (Keep It Simple, Stupid!) So, with this as a theme, I'd like to apply this theory for those who don't quite get it. My hope is that we can simplify things a bit and recognize a few important facts.Here are 10 things to consider when voicing an opinion on this important issue:

1) Between President Bush and Saddam Hussein, Hussein is the bad guy.
2) If you have faith in the United Nations to do the right thing, keepthis in mind: they have Libya heading the committee on human rightsand Iraq heading the global disarmament committee. Do your own math here.
3) If you use google search and type in "French military victories,"your reply will be "did you mean French military defeats?"
4) If your only anti-war slogan is "no war for oil," sue your school district for allowing you to slip through the cracks and robbing you of the education you deserve.
5) Saddam and bin Laden will not seek United Nations approval beforethey try to kill us.
6) Despite common belief, Martin Sheen is not the president. He only plays one on TV.
7) Even if you are anti-war, you are still an "infidel!" and bin Ladenwants you dead, too
8) If you believe in a "vast right-wing conspiracy" but not in the danger that Hussein poses, quit hanging out with the Dell computer dude.
9) We are trying to liberate them. He is trying to kill us.
10) Whether you are for military action or against it, our young men and women overseas are fighting for us to defend our right to speakout. We all need to support them without reservation

In 48 hours, this nation is going to war ... as much as I feel Bush is justified in this war...I pray that this is in the right timing. There are spiritual implications in this war which will have far reaching consequences ... esp. as we enter in what was formally known as Babylon 2000 some odd years ago. Yeah, I wish there was a peaceful resolution ... and there is still hope for one. But, I think both sides can make arguments how they are right. We best be praying for our leadership and that God's will would be established on this earth.

Whether that will is pro or anti war ... does it really matter? I suspect its more an issue of "pay me now" vs. "pay me later." Either way there will be blood spilled in this conflict between the Western and Muslim worlds. (Is it Ishmael and Isaac all over again?)
