Dear Lord,

Thank you for the peace in my life, and in the lives of all the Western activists.

Sorry that the people suffering under Saddam Hussein will continue to be tormented and oppressed, but, as you must know, it's for the best.

After all, "peace" for us is a much more noble goal than freedom for those distant and nameless Iraqis.

Isn't it?

Please calm my troubled head, O Lord, and allow me to accept that which reason would never allow me to endure.

Dear Lord, plase give me the moral strengthto fight for those opressed people who sit atop great natural resources, and ignore the rest.

Dear Lord,

I'm having trouble figuring out the finger position on the slide guitar during your solo at the end of "Layla." Are you using your ring finger to mute the strings?

You rock,

answer to Sir Walsingham

You are welcome for the peace in your life. I'll be glad
to keep working for peace for you, all the activists and all the people suffering around the world.

As you know there are people suffering under Saddam Hussein and they are also suffering under many other regimes around the world that the United States continues to support (Saudi Arabia for instance.) but because they are either the friends of the US or they don't have the goods under the ground we don't say anything but still many people in those countries we support continue to be tormented and oppressed just like in Iraq. But since the dictators in those countries are the friends of the US then thats ok.

But in your mind the US fights for freedom and justice-because Fox News and your leaders told you so and you believed it. I really wish it was that simple.

Those marchers that are on the streets of the US and around the world are not as selfish as you would like to make them out to be and they love America, the World and the people of the world more than you will ever fathom.

Coming back to this thread I'd like to apologize for my previous response. I smply don't want to contribute to another occasion where the sacred words of so many different religions were simply taken as an excuse to start an argument.

There's been enough of that through history, I'd just feel so unoriginal.

History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it.
