As much as I loathe to think about it, I truly believe that America is 'more than likely' the end time babylon spoken of in Revelations. America
may have been founded a Christian nation but she has slowly been turning her back on God with her "iniquity meter" slowy going in the wrong
direction. I honestly wonder if Christians in general really seriously think about what 'spritual position' America will be in as far as God in
concerned when the end comes and I don't think America is going to come out on top as far as God's final judgement is concerned. Like I said
earlier, God will jude ALL in the end, NO exceptions. (He couldn'd be a Holy God if he didn't). If you read throughout the Bible it becomes clear
God has the uncanny ability to hit multiple birds with one stone while passing judgement. (Again, I point you to Habakkuk where God used a wicked and
corrupt nation to put down another, both essentially destroying each other.) Read this:
When it comes to the 'final battle of Israel' I point you to Ezekiel. Read through it slowly and carefully praying to the Holy Spirit for
discernment and I think you will surprised.
All in All.. I don't trust Bush, I truly believe he is not what people think he is. Bush may be serving a purpose for God but not for the reasons he
may think they are. (Hitler thought he was following God remember?) I wholeheartedly support the troops but I don't support our president or
government as a whole. Too much iniquity,corruption and secrecy. (Really going to make it hard to vote in the coming elections, I'm neither Dem or

sorry for editing ur post but lets leave the religious stuff from this. this is not a christian or anyway a religious forum (excluding ufo's ofc) as
far as i know so lets leave that ok?
why im quoting u is because the way u think is wrong in my opinion. as u see, the way u believe in god is too extereme, should i say fanatic even.
which is what is going on in middle-east and we should'nt be attacking there to convert them to christianity by force, just to let it lead back to
what it already was.
the reason in my opinion should be to let the people have the chance to decide, and to be free, to believe in what they want IF they want to believe
in the first place. just like how in western world. because if everyone has the right to be free and think what they want, there isn't going to be
religious wars, which is too very stupid for 21th century.
as for bush, he certainly is using religion, yes, using. as a tool, and i dont blame him. its an effective way and it has been for ages. i just hope
the us wont force christianity or anything else such on middle-east. i just want them to have the chance to advance. and live in peace just like any
advanced civilization would.
i know forcing democracy and "freedom" as we say, on middle-east could be doing just the same as if we were forcing religion on them. but i believe
its reasoned good enough, in the end, its for our own safety, to avoid religious wars in which the situation would eventually lead. they may not be
much of an opponent at the moment, but as they advance, and unite, it will be very dangerous for western world.
as to hitler, he wasnt following gods command, he was simply using religion as a tool which didn't quite work in the end.
i do sound offensive, but i do respect ur decision, if u wish to be religious then so be it. everyone has the right to decide for themselves (in the
western world). i just dont want it to lead to religious wars, it is not something advanced civilizations like us should be doing anymore.
we are at the edge of becoming a space race, there will be more space for everyone, more than we could even imagine (actually more than we can
probably ever explore). would it really be wise to let it all end in a nuclear holocaust. all that man has accomplished withing his years on this
planet, gone in vain. just because of a peace of paper, or a god. which noone has even prooved to exist.
i hope u all dont just ignore my post as i think it does contain a good point regardless of its offensive output
