Groups Critical of Islam Are Waiting to Aid Iraq
By LAURIE GOODSTEIN - NYTIMES 4-5-03

outspokenly denounced the Islamic faith are among the aid groups waiting at
Iraq's borders to take humanitarian relief — and a Gospel message — to a

The situation presents a dilemma for the Bush administration, which does
not want to alienate its strong Christian evangelical constituency but
cannot afford to have the war in Iraq perceived as a crusade to Christianize
a Muslim nation.

SUBJECT: The American Military Man
Many of us are opposed to the War in Iraq. My opposition is focused on those who
got us there and not against those who are now squarely in harm's way. We may

The American Military
The average age of the military man is 19 years.
He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is
considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears,
not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country.
