    Good post RSDirtdog. Well stated and a fresh perspective. Nothing wrong in asking for God's blessing. What is wrong is saying "My country right or wrong" as if we are right all of the time in our history. How about saying " God give our leaders the wisdom and understanding to make the correct decisions that are acceptable to you who has ultimate wisdom".

    Maybe if everyone took God out of the equation, we would all be better off for it. Anyway, just saying.

    georom4,

    You have a good point!  Unfortunately, this happens on both sides of the aisle.  Our political leaders do one hell of a job dividing us.  We are becoming a very "Balkanized" country.  I won't bore you with how the Left does it to Repubs. & conservatives, as I'm sure you are well aware!  Your point however stands!!!!
    WE better come together SOON!

    At least we all agree on one thing..... Maybe several things.........

    1)  The Boston Red Sox are the greatest sports franchise in the history of ALL SPORTS!!!!!

    2)  Fenway Park is the Greatest ballpark in the world!!!

    3)  Boston is the GREATEST sports city in the world!!

    4)  Ted Williams is the GREATEST hitter of ALL TIME!

    *  I'm sure we can think of more........

    i am a massachusetts liberal but after 9/11, i totally supported Bush and his resolve against the terrorists...the reality is however he was sidetracked with Iraq/Saddam...no reasonable person can dispute that - I am just glad after almost ten yrs we got that murderer...it should not have taken that long but better late than never....i wish the victims of that tragic day peace (including a co-worker who lost a brother on the 104th floor) and closure...I thought it was cool that Obama called GWB beforehand to tell him because it was the right thing to do and Im sure GWB, like all of us, was happy to see that sob dead.

    In Response to Re: A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR NAVY SEALS & MEN & WOMEN IN UNIFORM & UNDER COVER!!! : I tend to share your unease with the "celebration."  I get it, & I'm not judging anyone who has "celebrated."  I actually thought I would feel more jubilant, but all I keep thinking is "is this going to bring on some horrific retaliation?"  I also find myself "war fatigued."  Now we're in 3 wars????  Two of which, our very liberal president is solidly behind.  I'm conservative by nature, and many believe that most conservatives have been behind ALL of these wars.  NOT SO!!!!!! MILLIONS of conservatives, like myself, have been opposed to ALL of these wars, as NONE have posed a clear & present danger to the U.S.  It seems we refuse to learn the lessons of history, where every GREAT country / civilization have overextended their reach with war, & collapsed from within??????????? I hope to God I'm wrong!!!!!  We are BROKE!!!  Bush spent like a drunken Dem. & Obama is doing a great job of doubling down on the deficit spending (which he ran against, I might add).  He has doubled, & tripled down on Afghanistan ?????? Because cave meetings are particularly effective in organizing terrorist activity??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Oh wait!!!!  No, because it was "the right war????"  Hmmmm!  I refuse to believe that so many bright people really thing chasing goat herders through the rugged terrain of Afghanistan is a SMART WAY to fight terrorism.  Are terrorist suddenly more proficient at planning their ops. by writing them out on stone tablets?????  I'm not just knocking Libs.!  Both parties are responsible for these wars! WE MUST BRING OUR VERY BRAVE KIDS HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't say this to cause any fight.  I respect those who feel differently about this.  I just DON'T SEE any 'winning' in Afghanistan or Libya (ironically, Iraq might end up being the only 'success' in this region) ANYWAY......"God Bless America!"  & God Bless the Red Sox!  :) Trust me!  He is a Red Sox Fan :) :)  :) ( crazies, please cut me some slack on that last part.  Just kidding........ sort of) p.s.   If God did bless every nation, who would we have to make fun of????  :)

    Interesting post d-dog.  I appreciate your truly conservative skepticism of these wars.  What we have been calling conservatism nowadays, in terms of military overextension and fiscal gambling, is far from true conservatism.  I respect your frame of reference.

    And, while I stand by my previous stance that God doesn't bless nations per se, He certainly blesses the Red Sox  Laughing

    The last thing Bin Laden saw was a United States of America Navy Seal aiming their weapon at him - can't top that.

    That does make for a pretty cool scene.  But, being that Bin Laden succeeded probably beyond his goals in luring, with one despicable act, a super power into two wars it cannot afford in human life or money, and cannot extricate itself from. I am not sure who really has the last laugh.

    Actually, I am neither. Perhaps there is a higher power but I am hedging all bets. What I do know is that this God thing sure has brought an awful lot of stupid death in the world.

    Space there is of course validity to your comment about the last laugh - but I am willing to wager OBL would have preferred another 20 years of leading terror rather than laying at the bottom of the Sea.

    In Response to Re: A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR NAVY SEALS & MEN & WOMEN IN UNIFORM & UNDER COVER!!! : Every war has collateral casualties. They are unintentional. They are not deliberate and every effort is made to minimize them by a moral country. I believe that our country is more moral than others. The mission yesterday made every effort to have no innocent lives lost and they succeeded.  Can Calmy tell me why the USA was under attack in 911 in 2001. What was the need for the terrorists to target the Pentagon (military target) and the World Trade Center (Economic target)? Why did we deserve to be at war with the terrorists? What is their justification for trying to kill hundreds in the London subway. Please give us a history lesson and fill us in on why the USA and England are evil and the terrorists have God on their side?  Posters take note here on what you think of Calmy and Andrewmitch.

    Sure, but do you really think an Iraqi mother whose child is killed as a "collateral casuality" suffers less than an American mother whose child was killed on 9-11?  I agree, America has a responsibility to be morally superior but when Tommy Franks says "we don't do body counts", stuff like Abu Ghraib happens, and over 100,000 Iraqi people die in a war that was started via lies, that moral high ground gets pretty shaky.  It is very easy to to be myopic and say that Terrorists show no care for human life but what the U.S. does is collateral casualities.  Dead is dead.  Not all of us place a higher value on the life of an American civilian, that that of an Iraqi or Afghani civilian.  And not all us feel like God has a favorite country. 

    What did Bin Laden hope to gain by attacking the Pentagon? Probably kill some important people, maybe damage the intelligence/military structure.  What did he hope to gain by attacking the WTC? Probably kill some important people and damage global finance.  Someone should have let him know that the amoral Americans in the financial sector were going to bring down the American economy in a few years anyway. Ultimately what was his goal, probably to lure the U.S. into a war it could not win, have the U.S. kill a bunch of civilians thus making it easy to recruit people to give their life fighting America.  Iraq was probably just a bonus. 

    Ultimately Bin Laden got what he had coming, he was murdered as an unarmed civilian just like he murdered thousands of unarmed civilians. Poetic justice really.  I'm guessing Trump will be wanting to see that death certificate......

    there is a small doubt that BIN LADEN may not have been killed.
    it may have been a member of ZZ TOPP.*
