And in case you're wondering, I do think we're doing what we have to do in Iraq...but if you're really convinced that it will lead to peace, consider the words of Haggai the prophet:
"This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the LORD Almighty. 'The silver is mine and the gold is mine,' declares the LORD Almighty. 'The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the LORD Almighty. 'And in this place I will grant peace,' declares the LORD Almighty."
Peace is coming, but not by way of MOAB.
