(By The Way, My Uncle's Fought During WWII; Especially My Uncle Gerry [Who Fought In Germany After The Normandy Invasion] And, My Uncle Frank [Who Was A U.S. Marine--Expeditionary Forces In Okinawa & Iwo Jima]: Who Didn't Like To Talk About The "Blood, Guts & Horrors" Of Their Experience As U.S. Soldiers During The War; But, Always Noted THEY HATED WAR WITH A PASSION--AND PRAYED THAT THEIR NEPHEWS, NIECES, CHILDREN & GRAND-CHILDREN (EVEN GREAT GRAND-CHILDREN) WOULD NEVER HAVE TO SEE WAR IN THEIR LIFE-TIMES !)
I Personally, Though, Fight A Different War--A Spiritualy War Via Holy Spiritual WARFARE:
"For Though We Walk In The Flesh, We Do NOT War After The Flesh:
[For The Weapons Of Our Warfare Are NOT Carnal, But MIGHTY Through GOD To The PULLING DOWN Of Strongholds;]
Casting Down Imaginations, And Every High Thing That Exalteth Itself Against The Knowledge Of GOD, And Bringing Into Captivity EVERY THOUGHT To The Obedience Of CHRIST;
And Having In A READINESS, TO REVENGE ALL DISOBEDIENCE, WHEN YOUR OBEDIENCE IS FULFILLED." 2 CORINTHIANS 10:1-6
**"FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES..." ! ! !

GEN. SCHWARZKOPF: Well, I think it‚Äôs important only because the man on the street in the Middle East, you know, believes that he ‚ÄĒ a lot of people believe that he is on the right track and that he is some sort of a folk hero and that sort of thing. And I think it‚Äôs necessary to bring him down, one way or another. I will confess to you that, you know, one of the statements that‚Äôs been attributed to me that I‚Äôm sort of proud of is somebody said, you know, "What do we do about Osama bin Laden?" And they asked me, "Can we forgive him?" And I said, "Forgiveness is up to God. I just hope we hurry up the meeting." And that‚Äôs the way I feel about him, really. That the General is now repeating the remark earlier attributed to him doesn't change the past ‚ÄĒ he wasn't the originator of the witty remark. Still, it's hard not to admire a man who knows a good line when he sees it.
