Here's What We're Up Against

Lest we forget what American, Iraqi and allied forces are fighting against in Iraq, take a look at this AP article printed in today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  The article describes six boys (four shown here) ranging in age from 14 to 18 who were kidnapped by al-Qaida in Iraq and forced into training to become suicide bombers.  The Saudi militant training them had threatened to rape the boys' mothers and sisters and kill their fathers if they did not cooperate.  Luckily for the boys, that Saudi was recently killed in a military attack.

This is the type of evil that our brave men and women are fighting to destroy.  We should not forget that the cause is just and our military (including the commander-in-chief) deserves our support.
