... and is that wrong?

In a TV documentary, to be telecast on the BBC, “former Palestinian foreign minister, Nabil Shaath, says that Mr Bush told a Palestinian delegation in 2003 that God spoke to him and said: ‘George, go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan’ and also ‘George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq’.”

Of course, the White House (WH) denies these claims but here is my question: We all know Bushie is a religious guy. He loves him some Christ fierce. He is loved by his people i.e. those that vote for him, for loving his Christ fierce. So since we know he is religious and that he loves his Christ fierce, what’s wrong with him believing that what he was about to do was sanctioned by God?

The problem that people will have with this is with the timing. Did God tell him to do that before he had enough evidence justifying the invasion? By the way, this does not work for Iraq since we all know that the evidence for that one was bullshit. Was God telling him that he should invade these countries or was God agreeing with the analysts who said that there were good reasons for him to invade Afghanistan.

As for Iraq, was God just pulling his leg and Bushie mistook that and actually invaded the country? Only God, and maybe Bushie, can answer these questions. Maybe, Christ would know. However, as is always the case, they are never there when you need them.
