    The Old Testament God loved the Bush Administration. The New Testament God will send the lot of them to Hell.

    Islamic practitioners the USA and its allies are waging a war upon the radical of your faith.
    With the Sword of God Almighty Himself we shall flay and purge the sinners of Allah amongst you.
    Don't like it kill them yourselves.

    OMG!..run around in circles with scissors crying..knock it off. This is about as crybaby as the cartoon BS.



    Oh btw Pelosi is still in trouble..funny how this makes news.

    //////////////////////////

    The War.

    IS a religious war and always has been..wake up.
    How dumb can people be not to realize or accept that by now.



    We are fighting over territorial control with al Qaeda&Friends across a significant chunk of Asia and Africa to stop them and their allies installing their form of Islam over those places. Because it will obviously lead to them using it to purge the world of the non-believers.
    The non-belivers are us.
    YOU are on one side of a religious war or the other.
    "With us or against us"

    Bush didn't start it nor did he make it religious in nature.
    Our enemies did that.

    Triad, I got to disagree with you on this. I know, you are shocked by that.

    I think that some within the Muslim world view it as a religious war against us. That seems pretty much self evident. I don't think that, so far, we are engaging in a religious war against them, nor should we.

    To clarify: those attacking us are the enemy. I think we can both agree on that. We don't need to classify them by their religion, only that they attack us. I think we risk, if we do classify the enemy by their religion, making additional enemies where they do not currently exist. I don't have a real issue making extra enemies if the cause is good, but in this case, it is unnecessary. A secular war against those who declare themselves our enemies by their actions is good enough.

    None of this changes the fact that I cannot see, based on the reports on this topic, that Rumsfeld was in any way trying to make this a religious war. It is pretty common and acceptable to use religion for comfort and strength in doing difficult tasks.

    Of course, I cannot dare to see those SECRET papers and the notes and the pictures.

    No.


    No way.

    Not even a glance.


    Not even a photoshop.


    I just have to believe.

    Can somebody post at least Photoshop pictures with Photoshop Scriptures on/under/above them?

    can it be moved to Conspiracy theories?

    In other words, what the **** ever.
    The Iraq war was suposedly fought because Saddam Hussein posed an "imminent threat" to the security of the United States. Now we see these little passages, cherry-picked from the Bible to synchronize with the actions of our military. The obvious appearance is that we are fighting a "holy war". It looks a lot like the Crusades. It is not what was sold to the American people. It is wrong. It is further proof that the previous administration violated their oaths of office and misused the armed forces. We must understand how these people did these things so it can never happen again.

    I personally believe that Rummy should have superimposed a huge explosion onto the cover pages and quoted Anton LeVey, maybe something like "Are we not all predatory animals by instinct? If humans ceased wholly from preying upon each other, could they continue to exist? - The Satanic Bible, page 25.

    Or maybe even a pentagram with Slayer gathered around a table eating a cherub, with the quote "The Devil has always had the best tunes. - The Satanic Bible, page 49.

    I'm not sure it would have made a huge difference, but it would have been a lot more kick-ass!

    Seeing as how they are one and the same God, said Deity will very likely send a great many of us to Hell.

    Pity none of us has a clue whom will be so sent and whom will be spared.

    I ask: - May I see the pictures annotated with biblical text before I believe they exist? Can somebody post them, link to them?

    I guess, it would never come to an atheistic mind that somebody can ask to see things in order to believe that they exist.

    I'll assume that English is your second language. Your sentences are far from clear and concise.
