No Atheists
In A Foxhole

Rudyard Kipling

" 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€

General Douglas MacArthur

" 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, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
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

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."

On This Day... Mar 07, 2010: Jos, Nigeria Hundreds of Christians are hacked to death by rioting Muslims: 500 Killed

The Killings

Hat tip RoP : Nigeria: 500 Christians Butchered in Jos.

In Jos, Nigeria, a massacre took place during the night of March 7, 2010 with 500 Christians murdered in the night by a gang with machetes ā€“ killing women and children.  A summary from London Times Africa reporter and other media reports are listed below.

The London Times reports ā€œ500 butchered in Nigeria killing fieldsā€:

ā€” London Times summary: ā€œOfficials estimate that 500 people were massacred in night-time raids by rampaging Muslim gangs near the city of Jos.  Survivors told The Times that entire families were killed, some to the chants of Allahu Akbar ā€“ God is Greatestā€

ā€” London Times report:

ā€” ā€œDozens of bodies lined the dusty streets of three Christian villages in northern Nigeria yesterday. Other victims of Sunday morningā€™s Muslim rampage were jammed into a local morgue, the limbs of slaughtered children tangled in a grotesque mess.ā€

ā€” ā€œOne toddler appeared fixed in the protective but hopeless embrace of an older child, possibly his brother. Another had been scalped. Most had severed hands and feet.ā€
ā€” ā€œOfficials estimate that 500 people were massacred in night-time raids by Muslim gangs near Jos, the city that bestrides Nigeriaā€™s Christian-Muslim fault line.ā€

ā€” ā€œLocal journalists and civil rights organisations who toured the area yesterday told The Times they had counted at least 200 victims shot and hacked to death in apparent revenge for sectarian violence in January that claimed about 300 lives from the two communities. Mark Lipdo, a co-ordinator for the Stefanos Foundation, a Christian aid group, confirmed at least 93 dead in one village. ā€˜But there are corpses charred beyond recognition,ā€™ he said.ā€

ā€” ā€œSurvivors claimed that Muslim inhabitants of the targeted villages of Zot, Dogo Nahawa and Rastat had received telephone calls two days before the attack telling them to leave the area.ā€

ā€” ā€œWitnesses said gangs waited at main entry points to the villages while others went from house to house, setting the homes on fire.ā€

ā€” ā€œThose who fled were killed at the exit points. Others were slaughtered after being caught in animal traps and nets as they ran in the dark.ā€

ā€” ā€œBen Kwashi, Anglican Archbishop of Jos, said he visited one of three villages engulfed by the violence. ā€˜I could see kids from age zero to teenagers, all butchered from the back, macheted in their necks, their heads. Deep cuts in the mouths of babies. The stench. People wailing and crying,ā€™ he said.ā€

ā€” ā€œNigeriaā€™s Acting President Goodluck Jonathan, a southerner, ordered troops into the riot-affected area ā€˜to confront and defeat these roving bands of killersā€™, he said in a statement. Last night he sacked Sarki Mukhtar, the national security adviser, a powerful figure in the inner circle of the ailing President, Umaru Yarā€™Adua.ā€

ā€” ā€œVillagers said army assistance came too late. Christian youths accused the military of complicity in the killings.ā€
