Israel:Speak Softly And Carry A Big Stick. A Very Necessary War Unfolds.

Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon

Submitted by Franken Harpo (United States), Jul 20, 2006 at 02:44

The time has come to initiate war to eliminate threats from any quarter. As Teddy Roosevelt said in his April 23, 1910 speech at the Sorbonne, Paris: "It is not the critic who counts:not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man that is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error..."

That being said, it is obvious that Israel can be your best friend or worst enemy. God is just!
