A French Revelation, or The Burning Bush
JAMES A. HAUGHT

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

Honest. This isn’t 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.

From the late 17th century, earlier if you consider Islamic rationalism, humanity has been on a journey towards rational and scientific thinking. Our institutions of higher learning have pursued knowledge and truths. The best of the brightest are described as rational deep thinkers, or sophisticates able to access complex literary insights and process complicated and contradicting ideas.

In the most advanced country in the world, the American people managed to vote as president a man that can be best described as delusional and at worst not very bright.

What is most pathetic about Bush is that he has been provided with the best education that could be had, he had access to very intelligent people - including his father, and he had the wherewithal to explore the world and yet didn't.

More than anything, I think Bush's belief system is born of conceit and indolent thought processes. Despite all that was offered he reputedly had a long wasted period in his life when he should have flown. To save himself, he had to 'save his soul' and to some extent this was a success. Clearly his faith is important to him yet he fails to see that the urgency he has for his religion is founded on the earlier precipice he faced.

Unfortunately, Bush Jr. cannot distinguish between the private internal within himself and public external discourse; a product of privilege, ego and stupidity. Consequently his mentality seeped out into the international arena. Gog and Magog indeed, the demons of an ex-alcoholic.

It's pretty crazy isn't it?

I mean... wow.. this is the BEST the Right can offer?

I used to be a Republican, back when they allowed intelligent discourse free of emotion and egoism.

Oh well... As with all history... the primitives will be wiped out.

Thankfully.
