Dean would make the U.S. legitimate?
War Done 'Wrong Way at the Wrong Time,' Dean Says
(CNSNews.com) - Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean applauded the capture of Saddam Hussein by U.S. forces, but thumbed his nose at the Bush administration for launching the war in Iraq in "the wrong way at the wrong time." Said Dean: "Let me be very clear - my position on the war in Iraq has not changed. The difficulties and the tragedies which we have faced in Iraq show that the administration launched the war in the wrong way at the wrong time with inadequate planning, insufficient help at the extraordinary cost so far of $166 billion." Dean added: "An administration prepared to work with others in a true partnership might have been able, if it found no alternative to Saddam's ouster, then to rebuild Iraq with far less cost and far less risk." The Democrat credited Saddam's capture to the "skill and the courage of our military leaders, our U.S. forces, our intelligence personnel." Dean said under his administration, he will make his first priorities addressing terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. Dean said he will achieve his goal by restoring the country's legitimacy, credibility, and strength.

But did you know that there were more Americans fighting for the King than for Washington by the end of the war?
A pity about all those French troops and ships.Those that hate you can not hurt you, unless you start to hate them back, in which case you destroy yourself.

My most recent faith struggle is not one of intellect. I don't really do that anymore. Sooner or later you just figure out there are some guys who don't believe in God and they can prove He doesn't exist, and some other guys who can prove He does exist, and the argument stopped being about God a long time ago and now it's about who is smarter, and honestly, I don't care. ~ Don Miller Blue Like Jazz

We should have a discussion one of these days about whether the American revolution was a just war or just revolt. It's an interesting question.She stood near the Crucified, suffering deeply with her Firstborn; with a motherly heart she associated herself with his Sacrifice; with love she consented to his immolation: she offered him and she offered herself to the Father. Every Eucharist is a memorial of that Sacrifice and that Passover that restored life to the world; every Mass puts us in intimate communion with her, the Mother, whose sacrifice "becomes present" just as the Sacrifice of her Son "becomes present" at the words of consecration of the bread and wine pronounced by the priest. (JP2)
Mary suffered and, as it were, nearly died with her suffering Son; for the salvation of mankind she renounced her mother's rights and, as far as it depended on her, offered her Son to placate divine justice; so we may well say that she with Christ redeemed mankind. (Benedict XV, Inter Sodalicia)
