America's Two Wars

America's Two Deadly Wars
By Lewis Sheckler, February 06, 2007

The United States is involved in two deadly wars. One has killed several thousand Americans; the other war has killed more than 45 million. One war has killed an average of several Americans per day. The other war has killed an average of more than 3,600 Americans per day.

This is an amazing fact: Americans are very focused on the much less lethal war, and are paying little attention to the horrific war that is killing many millions of Americans. There are two reasons. First, the less deadly war is very obvious, but the other war is very stealthy. Second, the dominant, liberal media are highly focused on the less deadly war, while they ignore the other, huge war.

What are these two wars?

The war that has been killing an average of several Americans per day is the
Iraq War. The war that has been killing an average of more than 3,600 Americans per day is America’s war on its prebirth children: legalized abortion.

The American lives lost in Iraq are precious, and we should mourn their loss. The American children who abortionists rip or cut apart in their mothers’ wombs and those children abortionists brutally kill during birth, are precious lives lost, too.

An honest consideration of all of these facts should convince every reasonable American that something is wrong – very wrong – and it needs to be fixed.

Since the victimes are silent and no one is opposing their deaths with violence, it can hardly be called a "war".

At most, you could call it a heated philosophical disagreement.

It is, indeed, a heated philosophical disagreement ... and I don't see it letting up anytime soon.

I feel, however, it could also properly be called a "war" because there is a very vocal, active "army" out there fighting for the rights of the aborted. (Hundreds of thousands or pro-lifers were in the Nation's Capital a few weeks ago.)

The major purpose of the post was to highlight the hypocrisy of those who constantly point out the number of soldiers killed in Iraq ... while ignoring the huge number of innocent deaths due to abortions here at home.
