"For us let it be enough to know ourselves to be in the place where God wants us, and carry on our work, even though it be no more than the work of an ant, infinitesimally small, and with unforeseeable results."

Waste or Sacrifice
Sen. John McCain has come under attack for speaking the truth by saying that soldiers' lives have been [and are continuing to be] wasted in Iraq. Earlier Barak Obama said the same thing and was also attacked. McCain has taken the politically expedient way out by saying that he should have said "sacrificed" rather than "wasted."
Let us allow McCain's verbal acrobatics. His original conclusion still stands. Any sacrifice to a false god is wasted. Lives in this war are being sacrificed to the god of the arrogance and pride of George Bush and company.
True followers of the Prince of Peace know further that Mars is a false god.
