I am sure that all of you heard about the sandstorm in Iraq Tuesday and
Wednesday (the worst in 100 years some say) and the drenching rain that
followed the next day. Our troops were bogged down and couldn't move
The media was already wondering if the troops were in
a "quagmire" and dire predictions of gloom and doom came from
the left wing media.
What they didn't report was that yesterday, after the
weather had cleared, the Marine group that was mired the worst looked
out at the plain they were just about to cross. What did they see?
Hundreds if not thousands of anti-tank and anti-personnel mines had been
uncovered by the wind and then washed off by the rain. If they had
proceeded as planned, many lives would have undoubtedly been lost.
As it was, they simply drove around them and let the
demolition teams destroy them.
Praises be to His mighty name! Thank you God, for
protecting our young men and women!
One person once asked George Washington if he thought
God was on his side.
His reply is reported to be, "It is not that God
should be on our side, but that we be on His."
P.S. In God we trust!
