The US troops haven't been provided with sufficient weapons, armor, food, water- (nor apparently proper training) , but they are being shipped planeloads of 'pamphlets' Sunday, March 30, 2003 US soldiers in Iraq asked to pray for Bush They may be the ones facing danger on the battlefield, but US soldiers in Iraq are being asked to pray for President George W Bush. Thousands of marines have been given a pamphlet called "A Christian's Duty," a mini prayer book which includes a tear-out section to be mailed to the White House pledging the soldier who sends it in has been praying for Bush. "I have committed to pray for you, your family, your staff and our troops during this time of uncertainty and tumult. May God's peace be your guide," says the pledge, according to a journalist embedded with coalition forces. The pamphlet, produced by a group called In Touch Ministries, offers a daily prayer to be made for the US president, a born-again Christian who likes to invoke his God in speeches. Sunday's is "Pray that the President and his advisers will seek God and his wisdom daily and not rely on their own understanding". Monday's reads "Pray that the President and his advisers will be strong and courageous to do what is right regardless of critics". http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/s819685.htm >From a country in the hands of the criminally insane, pg _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
