In Milton's Scarborough's recent letter to the editor he quotes the 14th chapter of Luke as a contrast to a recent Advocate-Messenger editorial praising President Bush's leadership. By totally taking the 14th chapter of Luke out of context, he tries to make the case that President Bush rushed to war with no clear direction and a military that is too weak and unprepared to get the job done. For example, he quotes verse 31 which reads, "Or what king will march to battle against another king, without first sitting down to consider whether with ten thousand men he can face an enemy coming to meet him with twenty thousand?" In other words, he seems to be implying that our 1,000 Marines in Afganistan could not possibly achieve victory over 30,000 Taliban. Of course, that has already been proven wrong. Our 135,000 strong Armed Forces could not possibly defeat Saddam's 500,000 strong army. Of course that too has already been proven wrong.
