Musing on March 1, 2011

1.  A good verse for those in troubled lands and waters today:  Psalm 19:11 says, "The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace."  We can be sure of that.  Ultimately His people will be strengthened and blessed with peace.  It may be the very verse you and I need today.

2.  More Anti-Church Thinking:  If you go to this link, http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=269337 , you will find a story about how the U.S. Federal government (or its agents) now are going after a church that meets the needs of the poor, hungry and homeless because -- wait for it -- it supposedly is too "untidy" and therefore "can't possibly be a church".  So, it must loose its tax exempt status.  Now, I'm not vouching for the church -- I do not know what is going on there, but this argument seems to be a little lame.   (They should be spending their time and efforts looking at restaurants and health places to see if they're all neat and tidy enough to qualify as such, instead of going after churches for that reason.)  I'd love to hear your take on this.

3.  No-fly Zone Over Libya or Around Libya:  Senior U.S. military man testifies that any attempt to enforce a 'no-fly' zone w.r.t. to Libya will definitely involve "combat" if it is to succeed.  That is, in order to prevent a country from flying it's planes, you need to first destroy its land-to-air defense system.  So, nice try, U.S., but your own people are saying that "half-hearted" threat strategies don't work.  Back to the drawing boards.  Let's see how else you can show how your influence is waning fast.  Apparently, even your buddy CNN implies you ain't got what it takes any longer -- or if you did, you'd show it.   Clinton seems you can be the hero by just being around and maintaining a presence in the Middle East (to stop the progressive rise of Iran), but the Yemen President just told you to mind your own business.   It's tough being the U.S.
