    thanks frank i too wish all the soldiers well who are going to face the coming conflict. here is a copy of a poem by a guy called bub. it moved me big time when i read it a pity this great human being had to be taken in conflict at so tender an age.

    I clenched my fist and shook it
    At the clear blue sky above,
    "Where are you God?" I shouted,
    And where's your wondrous love?"

    "How can you be so heartless
    With your children here below?
    How can you let this war rage on
    And weak ones suffer so?

    My anger mounted fiercely 'til
    My voice would come no more;
    And wearily I crumpled to
    The earth's soft grassy floor

    Then presently I heard a voice
    A still, small voice quite near;
    It called my name and whispered
    Reassurance in my ear.

    "Have faith my son and trust me,
    In this thy darkest hour;
    My love for you is greater far
    Than any evil power.

    "My love for man is infinite
    And when I gave him birth,
    I let him have dominion
    Over everything on earth.

    "He wields my mighty power
    And my substance as he will;
    He falters, falls and rises
    Growing stronger ever still.

    "Oh how I yearn to hold him up
    When ere I see him fall;
    And yet I can not take away
    My greatest gift of all.

    "For I gave to Man the right to will
    To choose the way he'll go;
    I can not interpose my love
    Unless he wills it so.

    "'Tis through his will and only thus
    That I may end all strife;
    But all who will may have my peace,
    My strength, My love, My life.

    "The time is near when all the world
    Will see the light my son;
    For everywhere on earth I hear
    The prayer, 'Thy Will be done'."

    With this the Father's voice was gone,
    And yet I felt him near;
    No longer was I filled with doubt-
    The Answer now was clear.

    I raised my head from where I lay
    And whispered, "Lord, I see.
    Forgive me for my unbelief,
    Henceforth I'll trust in thee."

    Frank,
    Thanks!(And if you're a Vet, right back at ya!) Guys like you are why I like to read this forum and post here sometimes. The Men and Women that are going into harms way now are the ones who get my salute and gratitude.

    Kendo,
    As one of those servicemen I accept your apology. Sometimes our "yappers get our crappers" in trouble. It takes guts for a man to admit he made a mistake.

    Mike

    Kendo most of the time when I find myself saying things I don't realy believe in its becuase something else is bothering me I can't talk about. Hope whatever it may have been gets worked out. Apoligize excepted as a vet and a American I believe that if I can let it go so can others. Thanks for being man enough to admit a misunderstanding. I may disagree with someones oppion but I will also die to defend the right of free speech.
