“We’re on a mission from God.”
Well, I always thought he was insane. :(
From The Campus Ministry, USA Bulletin Board:
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz was given transcripts of a negotiating session between Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas and faction leaders from Hamas and other militant groups. Abbas, who was trying to persuade the groups to call a cease-fire in their uprising against Israeli forces, described for them his recent summit with Ariel Sharon and Bush.
During the tense talks at the summit, Bush sought to underscore the kind of authority he could bring to efforts at achieving peace in the Middle East. Here are Bush’s exact words, quoted by Haaretz:
“God told me to strike at al-Qaida and I struck them, and then He instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me, I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them.”
Here we have proof that Iraq was not invaded because there was incontravertible evidence that Hussein had WMDs and was about to either sell them to terrorists or use them. We invaded Iraq because George hallucinated that God told him to.
