No Atheists
In A Foxhole
ā€œWhen you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldierā€

ā€œWe are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.ā€

ā€œIt is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.ā€

ā€œOld soldiers never die; they just fade away.

ā€œThe soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.ā€

ā€œMay God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .ā€
ā€œThe object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

ā€œNobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

ā€œFixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
ā€œIt is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

Photobucket
He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To My Church have you been true?"


"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns


Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around


Except to calm their fears.


If you've a place for me here,


Lord, It needn't be so grand,


I never expected or had too much,


But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

Robert Spencer: Returning from Nowhere
Monday, June 10, 2019
Robert Spencer
Jihad Watch : Wow, I had no idea. God bless you Robert! Will pray for you to come back stronger than ever. Get well Robert Spencer!!!!

Inigo Montoya: Heā€™s dead. He canā€™t talk.
Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead.
Thereā€™s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive.
(The Princess Bride)
Some of you may have noticed that I havenā€™t written anything at Jihad Watch or anywhere else since late April. The reason for this is that my heart stopped. About six weeks ago, while I was already in the hospital for pneumonia, I suffered heart failure, kidney failure, respiratory failure ā€” you name it, I failed at it. I was airlifted by helicopter from one hospital to another (alas, I donā€™t remember this adventure) and hooked up to every machine the doctors could find a way to plug me into. Finally, yesterday, I left the hospital (this time, alas, not by helicopter), with most organs having recovered passing grades.
I owe an immense debt of gratitude ā€” indeed, I owe my very life ā€” to the many doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who helped me get from the time when I had no pulse to this moment. Except for a couple of brief interludes, I was unconscious for about twelve days in late April and early May, so I wasnā€™t even aware of the presence of many of them, but that doesnā€™t dim my gratitude. While I had no pulse and was out, I was nowhere: I saw no all-encompassing light, and I heard no voices, a fact which I believe carries no metaphysical or spiritual significance. But I have had ample opportunity to reflect, and I came to some realizations that everyone knows but that many often forget: life is good. Be grateful. Love your family. Consider the lilies. Donā€™t take things so seriously. Donā€™t take yourself so seriously. All Godā€™s days are beautiful days. Etc.
And I realized one other thing: the astounding medical technology that pulled me back from nowhere developed, and only could have developed, in a free society. That makes the struggle for freedom of which Jihad Watch and my body of work is an infinitesimal part all the more important. With the darkness and totalitarianism against which we are struggling comes immense human misery. Let us then, with malice toward none and charity for all, continue to strive as long as we have the ability to do so. We owe it to our children, and all children, to try to leave the world as livable a place as we possibly can.
So I hope to be back at it, gradually, in the coming days and weeks. I want to express my warmest thanks to all the faithful readers of Jihad Watch, to Christine Douglass-Williams, who indefatigably and expertly kept the site going in my absence, to all those who contributed articles, and above all to those who offered prayers and good wishes on my behalf.
Your prayers were heard, your good wishes granted, and I love you all.
