DIVINE WINDAuthor: Unknown
When 50,000 of our boys were out in the middle of the Iraqi desert a few weeks ago a DIVINE WIND blew across the desert for three days followed by a drenching rain. The Muslim media said it was the worst sand storm in 100 years, and the Mullahs in 20+ Muslim countries proclaimed that the storm was sent by Allah when our troops were bogged down and couldn't move. The left-wing media [CNN, CBS, MSNBC & ABC, the New York Times, The Chicago Tribune/L A Times and lots of others] trotted out politicians and military experts that proclaimed we were in a "quagmire" and they all made dire predictions of gloom and doom.
What they didn't report [all except for Fox News and many smaller regional and hometown newspapers] was that after the weather cleared, the Marine group that was mired the worst looked out at the plain they were just about to cross. What did they see? Thousands upon thousands of anti-tank and anti-personnel mines that had been uncovered by the wind and then washed off by the rain. If they had proceeded as planned, many American lives would have been lost. As it was, they simply drove around the mines and then let the demolition teams destroy them.
Yes, it was a DIVINE WIND!
