From the New York Times' feature of today, Baquba's Deadly Houses

The caption reads:

During the operation, Specialist Paul Goodyear wore a headband bearing a passage from Psalm 91: "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust."

This reminds me of the green headband with Qura'nic script worn by some of the Islamic fighters-insurgents as a religious talisman.

It also brings to mind what Georges Bush said on September 16, 2001:

"And we understand. And the American people are beginning to understand. This crusade, this war on terrorism is going to take a while."
