America Attacked Iraq, Because God Told George Bush To
by James Glaser
No, it wasn't the Weapons of Mass Destruction and it wasn't those United Nations resolutions either. Those aluminum tubes had nothing to do with it and neither did Iraq's terrorist connections. God told George Bush to Attack Iraq,
Never mind that thousands and thousands of innocent people were killed by our forces and who really cares if little kids are dying from disease, because George Bush's God said that all of that was OK.
Norman Podhoretz, who for thirty five years was editor of "Commentary" magazine wrote, "One hears that Bush, who entered the White House without a clear sense of what he wanted to do there, now feels there was a purpose behind his election all along; as a born again Christian, it is said he was chosen by God to eradicate the evil of terrorism from the world."
Steve Perry, of the Minneapolis City pages writes, "he really believes it."
Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, of Palestine told an Israeli newspaper Haaretz, that George Bush told him, "God told me to strike at al Quaeda and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did."
Many people in America and all around the world hear voices that tell them to do things. Some like President Bush claim the voice comes from God, others say "the devil made me do it," but all of these people have one thing in common, They are Crazy!
Sure crazy is not the word we use in this day and age. No, now we have labels and terms we use to sound polite. I would term hearing the voice of God telling you to attack and kill thousands of people, a delusion, others would say that person was suffering from schizophrenia.
What ever you term it, a President of the United States of America, that claims God is telling him what to do, should not be in charge of the most powerful military force the world has ever seen.
There are millions of Christians that pray and talk to God each and every day. Very few have ever had God tell them to harm other people, but God has told our President to "strike" other nations, twice. America is going to war on the word of God as interpreted by George Bush and that is pretty scary.
