Bush to Chirac: Iraq must be invaded to avoid armageddon
http://bit.ly/Uxlih

former French Pres, Chirac is talking:

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.

1. I really hope he was drunk when he made that call to Chirac ...
... 'cause if he was spouting that kind of nonsense when he was sober .... oh my.
To think about how close to the edge we really were for the last 8 years.

:scared:

2. Bush White House checked with rapture Christians before latest Israel move.
It was an e-mail we weren't meant to see. Not for our eyes were the notes that showed White House staffers taking two-hour meetings with Christian fundamentalists, where they passed off bogus social science on gay marriage as if it were holy writ and issued fiery warnings that "the Presidents Administration and current Government is engaged in cultural, economical, and social struggle on every level"this to a group whose representative in Israel believed herself to have been attacked by witchcraft unleashed by proximity to a volume of Harry Potter. Most of all, apparently, we're not supposed to know the National Security Council's top Middle East aide consults with apocalyptic Christians eager to ensure American policy on Israel conforms with their sectarian doomsday scenarios.

3. The prevailing rationale for bombardment, invasion, and occupation never
seemed rational, so this bizarre rationale makes all the sense in the world. This Duer wonders if even one rabid supporter of the shrill push to pre-emptive war and fulfillment of the PNACers wet dream will recant their fervent support. :P

5. It's his father
Skull and Bones secret society at Yale university what both president attended. Skull and Bull gave meaningful names to its members, most of the names were occult. Named varied from “Long Devil”, “Boaz”, “Hamlet”, “Uncle Remus”, “Baal”, “Odin” – names from the scriptures and mythological literature. G. W. H. Bush the father of the present president of the US was called “Magog” – Remember the scripture saying: “and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.” from the revelation to John.

6. Anyone who asks why atheists are so "vocal" about their position needs to think about this.
This is exactly the reason, right there. Actually trying to sell policy-- and a war, no less-- with religious myth should be recognized as the lunacy it is.
