    I keep reading about the war and just wanted to make sure others could see this if they needed to. It is a memorial for American troops killed in Iraq and Afganistan. It is currently updated to Nov 11th. They are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I just have one question: Are there any memorial pages dedicated to the innocent men, women and children that have died needlessly in Irag and Afganistan since the onslaught of this war? (I'm not being snarky, I'd really like to know).

    This commandment was specifically referring to unjust premeditated murder. It is not against war, capital punishment, or killing in self-defense.

    While I'm not positive about this I would have to say that no there is not. The Iraqi government is in such a mess that they probably wouldn't spend the time and money trying to keep track of their dead. Plus, the U.S. does not conduct body counts on enemy combatants and civilians.

    First off it's thou shalt not murder.
    Though it is regretable, killing during war is acceptable.

    Praying for those killed and injured yesterday.
    Two of the dead were from my home state of Maine.

    Not that 14-17 thousand civilian deaths isn't horrible enough. But I've encountered claims of 100,000 dead. Maybe not all civilian.

    Any info?

    Matthew 5:43
    "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.'

    [size=-1]Matthew 5:44
    But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

    [size=-1]Matthew 5:45
    that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust. [/size][/size]

    According to Jesus War is not condoned. Basically pray for everyone since they are all neighbors.

    1 death is a tragedy...

    It really boggles me how the US can claim to be a Christian nation, but can't even get the 'turn the other cheek' part down. :areyoucra

    Let's remember this is in the Prayer forum, any more off-topic comments and I'll have to move or close the thread.

    Perhaps moving it to another more appropriate forum is in order since this is a sensitive subject.:)
