For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
A former serviceman was left bloodied and bruised when two drunken thugs beat him up for wearing an RAF blazer and poppy.
Anthony O'Brien, 69, was attacked by the thugs, aged between 17 and 20, after meeting friends to plan the funeral of a former colleague.
Mr O'Brien said today that as they attacked him they shouted: 'Blow up all soldiers. F****** shoot all you b*******s - death to all soldiers.'
The pair - described as being of Asian or mixed race - then headbutted and punched him to the floor leaving him in a daze.
