Abandoned and born in war

An infant crying for the light:
And with no language but a cry.”

Soldiers Discover Abandoned Baby on Side of Road in Afghanistan
Kevin Dolak reports for ABC News, Sept. 24, 2012

A newborn baby girl left abandoned on the side of the road in southern Afghanistan has been discovered by a group of Polish soldiers.

The soldiers came upon the baby, who they have named Pola, after Poland, wrapped in a towel on Wednesday while they were checking a route near their Waghez military base for safety, Defense Ministry spokesman Janusz Walczak told The Associated Press.

The group of soldiers was first suspicious when they discovered the baby, as there is a risk of hidden roadside bombs across Afghanistan.

It is still unclear who left baby Pola on the side of the road. The AP reported that there was no one found in a mile radius of where the baby was discovered.

After the troops found her, she was brought to a medical center at their base. The soldiers then bought the girl baby formula, a bottle and a bib.

I guess abandoned is also applicable to parents who are killed by drones.

My guess is that the Poles will. Their values are similar to ours and many of them hate the current inroads muslims are making in Europe. Especially since Poland saved all of Europe from Ottoman Turkish conquest in 1683 at the Battle of Vienna. Let this date sink in folks, it was 11 Sept. 1683 when that battle was fought. That date holds significance to muslims just as it did to Osama bin Ladin, and the current batch of rioters like the one’s that killed our Ambassador to Libya. Now, don’t let anybody try to convince you that muslims do… Read more »
