Who cares what God thinks?

I know it’s just a formula, but I still don’t like the tag on the Allawi quote:

BAGHDAD Iraq will create a security service to tackle the insurgency in the country, Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said Thursday.

The new service, the General Security Directorate, “will annihilate those terrorists’ groups, God willing,” Allawi said during a news conference.

That seems to me like donating a rather big hostage to fortune.
