I will agree, if you're under alot of pressure or adversity, it's natural to turn to your religion. I know I do when things are not going so great for me. After all, I just came back from a Catholic pilgrimage, and good grief, I'm already planning my next one. I'm not against these guys praying or whatever. I'm just skeptical about the chances of real "success" in this venture.

Surely though, US troops and the president (yes, he of the crusade against the axis of evil) should avoid openly proclaiming this when in a muslim land. A bit of tact and all that.

The battle is for hearts and mind, not souls.

But I forget America is God's favoured land. One nation and all that. Funny, enough I've just checked the bible no mention of the USA.

I will say that quite possibly the religious ceremony could have been more private. Praying is cool, but when you're in a Muslim country, do it privately. It's better to keep it out of the press. The locals might not take too kindly to this sort of thing, it does look a bit confrontational.
