"A French Revelation, or the Burning Bush"....Iraq must be invaded to thwart *Gog and Magog*

A French Revelation, or The Burning Bush

Incredibly, President George W. Bush told French President Jacques Chirac in early 2003 that Iraq must be invaded to thwart Gog and Magog, the Bibles satanic agents of the Apocalypse.

Honest. This isnt a joke. The president of the United States, in a top-secret phone call to a major European ally, asked for French troops to join American soldiers in attacking Iraq as a mission from God.

Now out of office, Chirac recounts that the American leader appealed to their common faith (Christianity) and told him: Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East. The biblical prophecies are being fulfilled. This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his peoples enemies before a New Age begins.

This bizarre episode occurred while the White House was assembling its coalition of the willing to unleash the Iraq invasion. Chirac says he was boggled by Bushs call and wondered how someone could be so superficial and fanatical in their beliefs.

After the 2003 call, the puzzled French leader didnt comply with Bushs request. Instead, his staff asked Thomas Romer, a theologian at the University of Lausanne, to analyze the weird appeal. Dr. Romer explained that the Old Testament book of Ezekiel contains two chapters (38 and 39) in which God rages against Gog and Magog, sinister and mysterious forces menacing Israel. Jehovah vows to smite them savagely, to turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and slaughter them ruthlessly. In the New Testament, the mystical book of Revelation envisions Gog and Magog gathering nations for battle, and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

In 2007, Dr. Romer recounted Bushs strange behavior in Lausanne Universitys review, Allez Savoir. A French-language Swiss newspaper, Le Matin Dimanche, printed a sarcastic account titled: When President George W. Bush Saw the Prophesies of the Bible Coming to Pass. Frances La Liberte likewise spoofed it under the headline A Small Scoop on Bush, Chirac, God, Gog and Magog. But other news media missed the amazing report.

Its awkward to say openly, but now-departed President Bush is a religious crackpot, an ex-drunk of small intellect who got saved. He never should have been entrusted with the power to start wars.

More...a good

I already read it in the French media. Chirac concluded that Bush is completely out of his f-ing mind.

2. Well, that's certainly not news......
Unfortunately, he was just the latest in a long line of somewhat insane Bush family members who got their sticky paws on the reigns of power. More to come.
