TO........All FROM......Christopher Baker SUBJECT...another example of the use of 'prayer' DATE......03:48am 30-May-91 George Bush has shown us which prayer he used when it was all over [Persian Gulf 'War'], but what did he use to get it started and make it go? here's an example of an inciteful [no pun intended] prayer: "O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their partriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with their children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it..." --- Mark Twain "The War Prayer" that would honest, at least.
