War is not to be entered into without "good cause." It because of that the I celebrate the removal of Osama from this world. I was his action and that of his follower that precipitated the deaths of thousands of civilians, Muslims with whom he did not agree and then the thousands of troops that fought and are fighting wars that may or may not have had anything to do with al-Qaeda. Clearly there was a great deal of combat which had nothing to do with 9/11 that the American people have been led to believe was somehow connected. If only this kind of operation had been carried out years ago. We can only speculate to no avail why.
Now it has been done. This is the type of response that any country should be proud of when its soveriegn territories are attacked, its citizens slaughtered. What we need to reflect on is when we my have been guilty of the same.
We must also remember that the ultimate heresy for any of us is to presume to know the mind of God and act in God's name except to "Love one another as I have loved you." John 13:34
What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
--Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle
Can patter out their hasty orisons.
No mockeries for them from prayers or bells,
Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,-
The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
And bugles calling for them from sad shires.
What candles may be held to speed them all?
Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes
Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes.
The pallor of girls' brows shall be their pall;
Their flowers the tenderness of silent minds,
