Unseen enemies

Enemy unseen

O My gosh! As I sit here and listen to the news I am getting
more and more appalled by what man seems to think. Honest to goodness, why would a nation fall into such a snare! Yes, the atrocities that we are hearing in Syria are beyond our thinking and it breaks the heart of a good and decent person. However, I am drawn up short by my nation's actions. Who in their right mind would not consider any kind of an unprovoked attack on another nation as not being an act of war? This is not the UN or a collective group involved here, this is one nation - my nation - at least at the time of this writing.
Emotions, emotions, emotions. So many agendas. Perhaps the enemy has a plan; the enemy we can't see. Perhaps his plan is a snare unto our feet, entrapment to get another agenda started.  We all know that sometimes our greatest foe is the one who does not reveal himself, who hides as an innocent or a 'friend' to us; who seems safe and harmless....
Do you find in your own life that betrayal comes in the form of a friend or a person who seems to pose no threat; from some one you never would have suspected, someone you have placed your trust in? Do you find that the snares that grasp your feet are invisible and can have long-term struggles? Are you aware or is your thinking dull?

Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But deceitful are the kisses of an enemy.
