America has lost its faith, fighting spirit
Dare I say that we have lost the war in Iraq? Blaming the Democrats or the constant drip, drip, drip of bad news by the liberal media is too easy. It is more complicated than this.
Whatever the reason, we now find ourselves stuck in the mud by the belief that seems to say the war in Iraq is no longer worth winning.
But why must the Democrats and the talking heads on TV slobber all over themselves in their glee? Would they have us lose a war to destroy a president? This is a recipe for madness.
The storm clouds of war are coming to America, and we have lost our way. Where is our fighting spirit? Where is our boldness? Where is the courage and faith that forged a great nation.
We have gone soft in the head. A culture of moral anarchy is destroying our clarity of thought. We are, as it were, sticking our heads in the sand. We are clueless to a dark foreboding that tells me a savage attack on America awaits our future if we cut and run in Iraq.
Our only hope then it in a great spiri- tual awakening, brought about by such an attack so brutal that it will shake this nation to its very foundations.
The American flag will then fly from every flagpole, overpass, barn, home, hillside and skyscraper. Our churches will be overflowing with people who have come to pray and seek salvation. And out of the ashes of war will arise a new nation, a God-fearing people who will once again face the future with a great courage. For, you see, spiritual faith brings with it great courage — a precious, demanding commodity to all who love freedom.
Our future leaders are, as it were, even now being tested in the refining fires of Iraq.
This is the only good I see from losing the war; that it is preparing leaders for a much more dangerous time down the road. This is a high price to pay for losing the war in Iraq. But pay it we must, for we have lost our way. Bob Bearss Coleman, Michigan
