"Bin Laden is NOT the enemy!"

Head of Army's Special Forces says 'I'm a warrior, not a peacekeeper'



When you look at William G. Boykin, you can tell the man is big and strong. When you hear him speak, you can tell he is a man with a big, strong faith in God.

Boykin, commanding general of the U.S. Army's John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School in Fort Bragg, N.C., heads Special Forces, including Delta Force. That unit of soldiers goes into situations that most civilians can't even imagine. And they go in as warriors.

"We don't head into situations to keep the peace. We go in to win. I'm a warrior, not a peacekeeper," he said. "Delta Force goes in, strikes quick and gets out. Often it is a hostage situation."

Boykin spoke at First Baptist Church, Daytona Beach, Fla., to a full sanctuary, which included participants of the National FAITH Institute meeting there Jan. 28-31, as well as church members and others from the Daytona Beach community.

Boykin said his Christian faith has sustained him and guided him throughout his military career.

"My mother raised me as a Christian. She is a true prayer warrior," he said. "Whenever I have a big decision to make, I call her and get her to pray."
Thirteen years ago when Boykin was named to lead the Special Forces group, "I knew this would be a tremendous challenge, so you know what I immediately did?I called my mother."

Boykin was one of the original officers in Delta Force. This group of soldiers has gone into war zones in Iran, Grenada, Panama, Somalia and other places of conflict. The events of their mission in Somalia have been dramatized in the motion picture, "Black Hawk Down."

Boykin said while he doe not endorse the movie, "I'm not saying see it or don't see it. That's your decision."

Before every mission, Boykin said he prays with his men. "I always pray for God's blessing on these warriors, for His protective hand around them. Then we sing 'God Bless America.' God has been faithful and has held us in His hands."

Boykin told the FAITH participants that the way they are trained is like the concept of Special Forces training - one person trains 100, who in turn can train 10,000. "It's a forced multiplier training. With you, with one prayer, you can call down 10,000 people. With us, with one A-team and a group of 5,000 untrained Northern Alliance warriors with heart, we can defeat the Taliban."

Of the current war on terrorism, Boykin said, "We have seen a godly man in the White House declare war on terrorism. We need warriors to fight and win this battle. I'm not just talking about our men and women in uniform. I'm talking about all of you in the sanctuary.

"Bin Laden is not the enemy. No mortal is the enemy. It's the enemy you can't see. It's a war against the forces of darkness. The battle won't be won with guns. It will be won on our knees."

He said, "Don't let go of this country. Stay on your knees and don't ever give up."

Burn Baby Burn

Judges 11:31-40



I'm gonna die with no tears in my eyes 'cause
God digs my Daddy!

I'm gonna die with no tears in my eyes 'cause
God digs my Daddy!

God digs my Daddy!

God digs my Daddy!

His enemies died when he lifted his knife and said
Please let me win and I'll send you a life
So soon I will be burning for my,
Soon I will be burning for my Daddy

I'm ready to die but it seems to be odd
That bleeding is better than breathing to God
But soon I will be burning for my,
Soon I will be burning for my Daddy

God digs my Daddy!

Soon I will be burning for my,
Soon I will be burning for my Daddy

God digs my Daddy!

Soon I will be burning for my,
Soon I will be burning for my Daddy
Soon I will be burning for my,
Soon I will be burning for my Daddy
Soon I will be burning for my,
Soon I will be burning for my Daddy

Isn't there supposed to be some type of separation between "church and state?"

why do all these scumbags keep talking about God? Is that like the only way they can get the ignorants on their side, by "enabling" their ignorant belief in a higher power which just happens to be "on our side" and continually "blessing" us with a larger quantity of explosives than "the enemy?"

That's the way it's supposed to be.  Unless the majority of Americans are buying into the latest evangelist call to "put god's law above Man's law".

It's fucked up, man.

I think Bush & Co have already bought into that evangelist crap, and this General's now looking for a promotion (Generals get promoted by the President with the consent of the senate).  :tongue:

"I think Bush & Co have already bought into that evangelist crap"

see this is what I was talking about - I think they haven't bought into that evangelist crap, but they've maybe they've noticed that many of THE PEOPLE have bought into that evangelist crap, so they simply "support" this "crap" by making it seem like they have "bought into that evangelist crap," and suddenly many more people support anything they have to say because they hear Bush saying "God Bless America" and all that other "crap," so they think Bush is a religious man, which I think he only seems this way because the people have clung to religion for so long..

Basically it seems to me like Bush (and numerous other past and future leaders) is pretending to follow God and "God's Will" because he sees how much of the "general public" have fallen into this religious trap.. If "the people" think that their leader is following the same basic fundamental principals that THEY are, then this leader must be a "Good Man," since he appears to be a "Man of Faith."

Seems to be a Bush trademark to reduce everything to "good men" verses "bad men". If you don't do what he approves of you are a "bad man".

Separation of church and state doesn't mean public officials can't talk about religion. They just can't establish a state religion or prohibit others from practicing their religion.

A concise and accurate response!

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

it's still disturbing as hell that some military officials think they have some divine mission from God to kill.

His god isn't the "One True God" so it didn't count, he's heathen scum. :grin:


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

Anyone who falls for that religious dogma bullshit is a moron. Ive seen an episode of the x-files that included a basis of religion more bealivable than those in the bible, torah, or koran. Any 3rd grade dropout could come up with better bullshit that that.
