    The Holy Wars....

    I think this term is redundent....
    After all, war is always Holy...PPl fight for religion , nation , ideology,,these are all holy wars...maybe just saying war is enough.....
    Muslims fought christians..we know they were holy wars...interestingly christians thought the same for themselves...Free world against...the oppression of sicialism......The great German Nation , against lesser humans...
    All were in the process of cleansing the world..and interestingly all were fighting holy wars......
    I am yet to hear a General say " I am going out to get obscene on blood, because I like the sight of it...because killing makes me feel more potent...because victory helps me deal with my feelings of smallness....and after each crusade,,,sex gets better for me..." No you dont hear that, you only hear them fighting for the greater good of humanity...
    If aggression and hostility , is a human need...it must express itself in all of us, more for some then others, but present nevertheless....
    Does anyone here , finds himself(/herself) fighting a holy war...Who are we making out to be our antichrist??....What antichrist didnt see christ as antichrist??

      Nova ji..very good topic. Here is an article that passed my eye somewhat releted to the subject.


      Mike Barnicle:
      “I spoke this morning with someone we all know.
      Someone who is incredibly busy but somehow always finds
      time to listen. Not only to me, but everyone else as well.
      His name is God.
      At least that’s what I call him, although he does go by a
      lot of different names in a lot of different places.
      Allah, Jesus, The Lord, Christ, The Big Guy, Numero
      Uno — God’s got a lot of nicknames. But he’s got even
      more responsibilities. I mean he’s got to have really broad
      shoulders — not to mention the patience of Job (who by the
      way was an old pal of God’s).
      When you’re God, people are constantly asking for
      favors and requesting the most unbelievable things.
      For example, take a normal day. In the course of 24
      hours, God is supposed to take care of our health, make
      sure the Dow hits 11,000, the little kids pass algebra, the
      big kids get into Georgetown, Dad finds a parking space,
      Mom wins the lottery and basic cable rates get cut.
      Plus, God is always getting hit on to help win a
      pennant, assist some criminal in basketball shorts, or aid a
      drug addict wearing a baseball uniform.
      Nobody actually knows if God is even a sports fan, but
      people are all over him, like he’s a regular on ESPN.
      And that’s just the small stuff. That’s before you even
      get to Kosovo.
      Listen to some of these fakers in Washington and
      you’d think God was the guiding light behind our laser
      bombs over Belgrade. Apparently, the president figures
      God is a member of the First Marine Division.
      The problem is, a lot of civilians in the Balkans think
      God is on their side. The same way Israel does and Iraq,
      Ireland and the British, the Russians and the Afghans,
      Katzenberg and Eisner.
      They all figure they have a claim. The One True Claim,
      on God, and some of the things they’ve done in His name
      are unbelievable.
      I wonder if God ever gets confused.
      Then, along time comes Columbine High.
      And, boy oh boy, talk about ‘taking the Lord’s name in
      vain.’ You see some of these poor people on TV at the
      various ceremonies for all the dead children. And if they’re
      not wondering ‘How in God’s Name could something like
      that happen,’ they’re asking, ‘How could God ever allow
      such a thing?’
      Well, I’m no expert. But, from the little I’ve learned
      over the years I don’t think God had anything to do with the
      commission of any crime.
      God didn’t pull that trigger in Littleton — any more
      than He is bombing the Balkans.
      God is a good guy. He’s neither liberal nor
      conservative.
      He’s not a Republican or a Democrat.
      God doesn’t rely on polls or focus groups.
      God believes. He’s got a point of view.
      Plus, God knows there’s only so much that can be
      done on Earth because He’s known every evil fruitcake you
      can think of.
      Hitler, Idi Amin, Jim Jones, Charles Manson, Richard
      Speck, Jeffrey Dahmer — God knew every one of those
      dudes. Knew they were total whack jobs.
      God also knew Ghandi and Lincoln, Martin Luther
      King and Mother Theresa.
      And God knows me, and He knows you too, Don.
      God knows what it’s like to get spit on, to be crucified
      — physically as well as verbally — to carry a cross while
      people make fun of you because of how you look or what
      you think.
      God is more wired than the Internet.
      He’s cool.
      And He’s black, and He’s white, and He’s Asian, and
      Hispanic too.
      Hey, for all I know, He might even be a chick.
      But He must be pretty sick of our act. Totally bummed
      out by how we behave. By how we murder and mutilate
      each other. By our arrogance and our violence. By how we
      suck up to Him when we’re looking for help. And then
      behave like total ingrates two minutes after He bails us out.
      Still, He sticks with us.
      Even when we half-indict Him for things like murder in
      Colorado or war in Yugoslavia.
      How come?
      Don’t ask me.
      Ask Him.
      You can talk to Him anytime and the number is never
      busy.
      Look around. Check out the news. Watch what’s
      going on all around us.
      For God’s sake, what have we got to lose?”
