    Do you always attempt to antagonize? I suppose someone has to do it.
    God doesn't 'play' I'm sure you meant 'plan' not play.  Matthew 10:34   "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." Romans 12:18   "If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men." 
    We (USA) had no intention of involving ourselves in a protracted war with the Taliban or any of the terrorist groups given haven  there. We were living peaceably with them. However, from that haven, the USA was attacked. The government of the USA is a secular entity and is subject to passions of any lost unsaved folks. They are also subject (or should be) to the passions of citizens of the USA and many of them are lost. The citizens were enraged and the government responded with a search and destroy mission for Osama Bin Laden. The remainder of the mission suffered 'mission creep' and resulted in 20 years of war over there with prevention of other terrorist attacks as justification. Sadly, Obama and Biden could have pulled us out after they killed Osama and his family but they chose instead to relieve every general and admiral who advised them to get out. Back to my comments its Obama and Biden's fault we have no military leadership remaining.

    I watched as Obama eliminated the best military tactical minds and leaders in favor of generals and admirals skilled in social engineering and expert in maintaining their retirement pensions. Biden was just as much at fault as Obama and is complicit in the deterioration of our military. Now there are no active generals or admirals who will stand up and tell Biden he was wrong nor were there any tactical-leaders to advise him his course of action (full retreat) was wrong and sent the wrong message. I imagine none of the Obama-Biden generals will even be asked to resign.
    Sadly, President Trump was stuck with these same mealy-mouthed no account generals and admirals during his first four years. I have a feeling that will change during Trump's next four years.

    From Ted Cruz:
    It is now clear there has been a disastrous breakdown across the political, military, and intelligence leadership of the Biden-Harris administration, culminating in the catastrophe for American national security we are now witnessing. This debacle should never have happened—and, indeed, we were assured it would not happen. In just the last few weeks, top officials from the administration, including Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Milley and President Biden himself, stood in front of cameras and told Americans their plan for withdrawing from Afghanistan was sound, the country's military was capable of defending the country, and a Taliban onslaught could not succeed.   We now know those assurances were disastrously wrong, if not outright false. I have long called for the U.S. to withdraw from Afghanistan. Wars must have ends. The Trump administration had negotiated the basis for an orderly withdrawal from Afghanistan. But this White House tore up that deal and instead pursued an incoherent and precipitous abandonment that subordinated realistic planning and military necessity to wishful thinking and political ideology.   Our men and women in uniform have fought heroically for decades, in Afghanistan and elsewhere, and it is impossible to adequately express the gratitude Americans feel and the immense debt we owe them. Their leaders have too often let them down and did here again. They and other brave Americans in Afghanistan are in precisely the acute danger President Biden assured the American public would not happen.   Our first priority must be to secure the safety of Americans still in Afghanistan. Then Congress must demand a thorough accounting both of what is happening in Afghanistan and why Biden-Harris officials have been consistently issuing assessments that were at best, misleading, and at worst, false. Either there was a complete collapse of American intelligence collecting in the region, President Biden was deliberately misled by his hand-picked national security team, or he knowingly issued statements he knew to be false. The American people deserve to know the truth and hold our leaders accountable.

    Psalm 94 KJV
    "3 Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
    "4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
    "5 They break in pieces thy people, O Lord, and afflict thine heritage.
    "6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
    "7 Yet they say, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
    "8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
    "10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
    "11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
    "20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
    "21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
    "23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity,
    "and shall cut them off in their own wickedness;
    "yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off."

    Look how God has handled sin in the Bible with cities. Sin wise, I don't think we are too far from what Sodom & Gomorrah was.
    Ezekiel 16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

    The Bible tells us "IF IT BE POSSIBLE, As much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men." At times this IS NOT possible as demands are placed on individuals that are not feasible.

    I don't agree about jail time time for the protestors, at least not 7 months of solitary confinement especially since most haven't been charged with anything other than unlawful trespassing. You don't give solitary confinement for that. The Constitution demands a "speedy trial".

    I have no problem with people who unlawfully entered the capital on Jan 6 to spend time in jail. Likewise those who  rioted and burnt down buildings also should spend time in jail.
    A lot of the business that was burnt down and looted was minorities owned, and we're letting people get away with it? Proof that the democratic party is STILL racist against minorities.

    Sedition is an attempt to over a lawful government. The Democrats have been overthrowing the Constitution for 50 years. The protesters at the Capital were not trying to overthrow the Constitution. They were protesting a rigged election.

    The definition still doesn't prove there was one, nor does it prove who caused it, as I suspect you'd be implying that President Trump was responsible. Usng this definition, those people in the West that were looting and raiding were insurrectionists and should be in jail, not having their cases dismissed.

    And this is sad...because there really was no sedition if we go by the true standards of Peloi's Pitbulls! They have allowed and supported the riots all over the country, but not the one at the Capitol Building, which was aided by the Capitol Police by their removing the barriers and motioning people in. This is a double standard on the part of Pouting Pelosi.

    "Prosecutors last week, for example, moved to dismiss “in the interest of justice” a charge of assaulting a federal officer they filed last July against a Texas man, David Bouchard, who showed up at a nighttime protest with a leaf blower to disperse police tear gas and ended up on the ground with two police officers, according to an affidavit.
    “We reviewed video that showed he didn’t try to hurt any U.S. officer,”
    Mr. Bouchard’s attorney, Ernest Warren, said. “I think the U.S. attorney’s office in Oregon was very reasonable, and they looked at the circumstances of his case.”
    Mr. Bouchard, a 36-year-old veteran, said he completed 30 hours of community service at a food bank near his North Texas home in connection with the resolution. “I did that and they immediately dropped the charges,” he said. “I was kind of amazed by that.”"
