Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, Denounces Those "Who Kill Innocent Men, Women, and Children!"

U.S. Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, Indignantly
Denounces Those
"Who Kill Innocent Men, Women, and Children!"

Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, made a number of statements which were publicly recorded during his surprise '04 Christmas visit to U.S. troops in Iraq.

In one news clip the Defense Secretary was most indignant concerning the acts of insurgents in Iraq. Just prior to Rumsfeld's visit a suicide bomber had successfully gotten into a dining hall for U.S. military personnel and killed a number of U.S. soldiers when he detonated the explosives carried on his person.

Rumsfeld strongly denounced those "who kill innocent men, women, and children." Of course he was limiting the scope of the statement to Iraq and not directing that fusillade toward other countries, including the one in which he holds the position of Secretary of Defense!

Maybe he and others in the U.S. government need to be confronted with the fact that quite a few innocent ones are killed in this country at a far faster rate than what is occurring in present day Iraq!

"How is that?" you might ask. The facts, numbers, and pictures tell the grisly story which a majority of citizens in this country along with elected political leadership and church leadership are unwilling to honestly face!

Ok, let's take a look -- hold on now -- you won't like what you see, and if you've been to Circuit Rider's Range before, you may have seen some of the following examples of the "killing of innocent children," to quote our indignant Secretary of Defense. These victims never had a chance to be born, and there are quite a large number -- in fact, the number grows by about 100,000 per month and there is no hard evidence that there will be a drastic reduction in the killing of these innocents any time soon.

We have a "number cruncher" which keeps a record of the total number of "innocent victims" since our prestigious Supreme Court ruled that it is a "constitutional right" to destroy unborn children. As you will note, we have compiled quite a bloody track record since January 22, 1973 -- ah, you would agree to that, would you not? Or have you fallen for the mistaken and deadly propaganda spread by "pro-choice" advocates and pro-abortionists that all we are really doing is disposing of some tissue and blood when a female contracts to have some character in a white coat remove that which is causing her abdomen to enlarge?

Now here's another interesting thing to consider -- we were told repeatedly that Saddam Hussein was a cruel and brutal dictator -- he had weapons of mass destruction -- he had carried out merciless acts of violence against many citizens of Iraq, and it had become a priority issue that he be removed from power. This was the rhetoric we were constantly hearing from the Bush administration, including Defense Secretary Rumsfeld.

And so, in mid March of 2003 we launched a pre-emptive military strike against the sovereign nation of Iraq. The best numbers anyone has come up with in terms of victims under the brutal rule of Saddam & Sons is about 1,000,000 or so over the years that they were in power. The total population of Iraq is around 25 million -- quite a bit less than the number of victims of the United States' unique version of "holocaust" as noted above!

Are you big enough and strong enough to honestly do a little comparing? Take a look at the number of innocent victims which were brutally mutilated and murdered in the "land of the free and the home of the brave" since we started to free the Iraqi people from the brutality of Saddam Hussein & Co!

But there is something else we need to remember -- that George W. Bush, the members of his Cabinet, and the Republicans don't seem to be very much disturbed about this toll of victims -- that is, there isn't much of a priority in putting the brakes on the daily destruction of unborn children, although the finger was often pointed toward Saddam as being a brutal dictator etc. Oh, there will be some rhetoric on the occasion of the annual March for Life in D.C. during the 3rd week of January, and a few days after George Bush takes the oath of office for his second term as president of our republic. But after that it will be "business and politics as usual" while the slaughter of the innocents continues at a brisk pace! As noted above, best estimates on the number of victims under the rule of Saddam & Sons is in the million range -- now what is that figure again of brutally murdered unborn victims in the United States since March 19, 2003? And how about the number of unborn victims since George W. Bush became president back in January of 2001?

Now are you ready for another very hard question -- again, it's the kind that we all prefer not to consider and certainly don't want to discuss within family, church, a place of employment, or in the political arena -- that question is this -- how long do you think our insane national policy will continue before Almighty God makes His response to the calloused destruction of those for whom He had plans and whom He knew and identified before they were even conceived in their mother's wombs?

There are a number of pro-life people who are quite optimistic as a result of how the 2004 election went. The reasoning is that the Republicans made some gains in Congress and President Bush will likely appoint two or more justices to the Supreme Court over the next 4 years, and this will set the stage for getting this thing of destroying unborn children under control. Oh, is that so? Keep in mind that "pro-life" President Bush and PA Senator Rick Santorum zealously campaigned for "pro-abortion" Senator Arlen Specter in his bid for reelection in the Keystone State! Specter is also in line, and wants desperately to be the next Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee -- future judicial nominees have to pass muster with this committee before Senate confirmation! Specter has derailed nominations in the past and there is no reason to believe he will change his "pro-abortion" litmus test in the future, in spite of what he may claim to the contrary! Politicians coming out of Philadelphia are suspect anyway -- just ask most Pennsylvanians about how it is now with Ed Rendell as governor, who formerly was mayor of Philadelphia.

But the far larger question is this -- do we really have time to play our political games and engage in our "pro-life" vs. "pro-abortion" fisticuffs as though we have a century to two to get the issue settled? There's more than an outside possibility that we have already crossed over the line when it comes to sure and certain judgment at the hands of a holy God Who has revealed that all humans have identity and personhood in His sight before conception!

I'm an ordained United Methodist pastor and have been for nearly 4 decades. I have come under severe criticism for making an issue of our destruction of unborn children and posting pictures of some of the victims as our republic continues to sanction the mass murders of the unborn. I have yet to see within my own denomination our bishops and our district superintendents expressing a slight hint or a minimal whisper of outrage over the destruction of the unborn. They seem to prefer living in a world of denial and that the U.S. version of "holocaust" isn't really happening -- they would make cozy companions with those who still insist that the Nazi holocaust never really happened. What is interesting is that much anger is directed my way for raising the issue and posting the pictures but there is never any anger directed toward the white-coated individuals guilty of committing the massive atrocities! Got an answer to that one? I surely don't!

But I only have to live with that for a short while on this earth -- then there is One Who will intentionally interrupt the flow of human events as we presently experience them and "level the playing field" in the future -- His name is Jesus Christ! One big surprise will be the fact that all who survive that dramatic event will be confronted with the fact that God's view of humans is shockingly different from the view of the U.S. Supreme Court, elected politicians, and a substantially large number of U.S. citizens!

Just something to think about and something to sleep on, if you can!

A Significant Selah Moment!

O LORD, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? even cry out to You, "Violence!" And You will not save. Why do You show me iniquity, and cause me to see trouble? For plundering and violence are before me; there is strife, and contention arises. Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.
Habakkuk 1:2-2 (NKJV)

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness....

It is time for You to act, O LORD, for they have regarded Your law as void. Therefore I love Your commandments more than gold, yes, than fine gold! Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate every false way.

Romans 1:18; Psalm 119:126-128 NKJV
