As American made projectiles rip through Iraqi tissue, fracture bone, severe heads and scatter what was once a human body onto fields, floors and walls, the Bush hawks in business and government are salivating for a bite of the carcass that is Iraq. European and Arab leaders want their share too and, as of late, are distancing themselves from the anti-Bush, anti-war stance they held not so long ago when the US bypassed the United Nations to grab Iraq for itself in clear violation of international law. The world over, corporations and governments, hardly distinguishable anymore, are playing the same dreadful game.
Even as the US daily mocks the Geneva Convention, impugns the Law of Armed Conflict and Rules of Engagement through the use of cluster bombs and indiscriminant murder of Iraqi men, women, children and livestock, it has accelerated the pace of the conquest to arrive more swiftly to its end-game. The finish will see US corporations--along with an assortment of dubious support organizations--making "liberated" Iraqi's market-friendly. They will control the price of oil decimating the one bargaining tool that remained for the Arab world, that being OPEC. Already, as widely reported, the US House of Representatives is trying to ensure that wireless carrier Qualcomm of California be allowed exclusive rights to the "Iraq market". In Basra, with the encouragement of the US, bottled water is being sold rather than given freely to the needy.
US weapons makers see a great new market in the forthcoming remake of Iraq's military forces. Their products are field tested and ready for the big defense trade exhibitions like the 4th LAD, the International Exhibition and Conference on Defense Technology to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil in April, and the Paris Air Show to be held in June. With America under Bush no longer bound by arms agreements, every country will want to stock up. US oil companies like ExxonMobil are already hard at work in Southern Iraq getting product on line. McDonalds and other fast food chains are eager to open up shop in Iraq.
The Southern Baptists and other militant evangelical Christian organizations headed by the likes of Rev Franklin Graham who called Islam a "wicked religion" are on the border in Jordan waiting to setup new ministries in Iraq, as reported by Matt Engel in the Guardian. The starving will be enticed with food and water to "praise the Lord" and reject Islam, which these US based militant groups despise. No doubt they will sign a sheet saying they are praying for "President Bush" too.
This wanton slaughter of a people, its national identity and the ongoing crucifixion of Islam at the hands of the Bush Regime is an appalling chapter in humanity's young history. Watching the nauseating spectacle in Iraq unfold is the same as watching television programming on the Nature Channel in which a slain water buffalo is ripped to shreds by hungry Hyena's, Vultures, Lions, Cheetah's and assorted other creatures. Absolutely nothing separates the mentality of those hungry creatures from the human species.
And what of this vaunted precision military technology? Are the F/A18, the cruise missile submarines, the M1 Tanks, anything more than high-speed catapults tossing metal and flames at the enemy? The Tartars--who in 1349 catapulted plague infested bodies into the city of Caffa in the Ukraine--would appreciate these new means of destruction. The 21st Century is only inches removed from the days of the Tartars.
And to this day, most Americans still believe that Iraq is responsible for the rebel attack on New York City and Arlington, Virginia on September 11, 2001. The most vociferous American supporters of Bush indicate that much of this is about those "3,000 that died on 9-11" at the hands of the Iraqi leader and the hypothetical amount who would have died without this divinely inspired preemptive conquest. But wasn't the Biblical "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" satisfied by the deaths of thousands of civilians in Afghanistan, the capture and detention of hundreds of "enemy combatants" dying in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and the thousands rotting away in jails throughout the US because they had the misfortune to be from the many Arab and Persian cultures throughout the world.
Battle Plan for World War IV in Bible
There should be little doubt about what the Bush plan is for Iraq and the rest of the region. As CNN reported, James Woolsey, former CIA Director under Bill Clinton and likely player in the new government of Iraq, stated recently of regimes in Iran, Syria, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, "We want you nervous. We want you to realize now, for the fourth time in a hundred years, this country is on the march and that we are on the side of those whom you -- the Mubaraks, the Saudi Royal family -- most fear: We're on the side of your own people." Woolsey is part of the militant, stridently pro-Israel group that advocated attacking Iraq back in 1998. The US government in Iraq may include another of this sect; Jay Garner, a defense contractor and retired military officer whom once applauded the Israel's brutal treatment of the Palestinians. In short, the new government of Iraq will be culled from Bush loyalists from the Project for a New American Century, Center for Security Policy, Committee for the Liberation of Iraq and the omnipresent American Enterprise Institute. All of who advocate imperious global US rule and a greater Israel and who are on record on that score.
So it should come as no surprise to learn, again, that on April 4, 2003, Israel's Haaretz's Aluf Benn obtained a communique from Mr. Bush to Mr. Sharon indicating that "the American administration says the United States is operating with strong resolution to neutralize the Iraqi threat to Israel. After the war, the message continued, the United States will deal with other radical regimes in the region - not necessarily by military means - to moderate their activities and fight terrorism." Woolsey is making millions of Americans and thousands in Israel--whom oppose this new adventurism--very nervous indeed.
There is good reason for them to be nervous. Yahweh and the Christian God, being warlike, outlined long ago how to treat the followers of "wayward" religions like Islam or those who dissent from the Bush's WW IV campaign. In the Bible, Numbers 31, "God" gives his followers their marching orders including how to divide the spoils.
"The Lord said to Moses, "Take vengeance on the Midianites for the Israelites. After that, you will be gathered to your people." So Moses said to the people, "Arm some of your men to go to war against the Midianites and to carry out the Lord's vengeance on them. They burned all the towns where the Midianites had settled, as well as all their camps. "Have you allowed all the women to live?" he asked them. "They were the ones who followed Balaam's advice and were the means of turning the Israelites away from the Lord in what happened at Peor, so that a plague struck the Lord's people. Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
The Lord said to Moses, "You and Eleazar the priest and the family heads of the community are to count all the people and animals that were captured. Divide the spoils between the soldiers who took part in the battle and the rest of the community. From the soldiers who fought in the battle, set apart as tribute for the Lord one out of every five hundred, whether persons, cattle, donkeys, sheep or goats. Take this tribute from their half share and give it to Eleazar the priest as the Lord's part. From the Israelites' half, select one out of every fifty, whether persons, cattle, donkeys, sheep, goats or other animals. Give them to the Levites, who are responsible for the care of the Lord's tabernacle."
So Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the Lord commanded Moses. The plunder remaining from the spoils that the soldiers took was 675,000 sheep, 72,000 cattle, 61,000 and 32,000 women who had never slept with a man. The half share of those who fought in the battle was: 337,500 sheep, of which the tribute for the LORD was 675; 36,000 cattle, of which the tribute for the Lord was 72; 30,500 donkeys, of which the tribute for the Lord was 61; 16,000 people, of which the tribute for the Lord was 32."
Bush takes his orders from the Lord. So beware Islam. And beware all of you who do not believe in Bush's divine mission.

P.S. Bush doesnt know what divine means let alone is it. Anyway no man can be divine, no prophet, no one except Allah subhannawatallah. (All glory is Allahs)
THE DESTRUCTION THE DAJJALIC SYSTEM AND AMERICA AND ITS SUPPORTERS HAS JUST BEGUN
I don't know of anyone here in America who believes Iraqis were involved in the 9/11 attack; we all know they were of Saudi birth. As far as "an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" quotation ... that is from the Old Testament, Jesus' history ... He gave us the admonition to "turn the other cheek" ... how Christian can you be? Jesus was a man of peace, not war.
Your hate mongering is an embarrassment to those who offer logical argument against the war. Shame on you.
your remarks are totally off the wall but that doesn't surprise me. You feed off the illiteracy of those you cater to. You enjoy your freedom here in the US and talk down our policies around the world. You probably cheered the towers when they fell. Where were you and the Muslim world when Saddam was raping, torturing, and murdering his people? Could it be you didn't care because there was no money to be had or hatred to be stirred up against the west? You hypocritical bastard. You could care less about the Iraqis or the Muslims. It's just they are the only ones who'll believe your bull. They Christian faith in America has helped more people than any Islamic organization in the world. Theirs is only a hatred for the Israelis. And no one knows why, not even you. Where are you going to be when America is trying to rebuild Iraq and give it back to the Iraqi people? I'll tell you, you'll be right where you are now hiding behind your closed door safe and secure in the good old USA downgrading any and all efforts of the very country you reside in order to further your own misguided beliefs. Why don't you live in one of those countries you do support. Is it because you don't have the freedom of speech you have here?
Why didn't you go to Iraq and say something against Saddam? You would have had your tongue cut out that's why. It needs to happen here.

Dear Mr. John Stanton,
Maybe you are a clever man? Maybe you are just toying with us. That would explain why you are saying things that are so offensive.
On the other hand, if you are making up these hateful things because you are purposely being ignorant, you are not different than the Christian Religious Leader who criticizes the Quran in ignorance.
I have read the Quran and now spread the Injeel to everyone I meet. Surah 3:55 clearly states that Allah says we are to follow Jesus. Those Christian Leaders do not know that, because they do not read the Quran; like many Muslim friends of mine that complain that it is too difficult to understand.
You are in a position to influence millions. Either you are blatantly saying these terrible things to get comment on this website or you are purposely spreading evil sentiment that is good for nothing. I hope we will all seek the truth.
Allah be praised,

As for the Middle Eastern regimes, there was a time when they were powerful. However,they choose to be slaves. They did not utilize that time to progress. Instead, they wasted that time in entertainment and control over their own people. Now they have nothing and the enemy has everything.
May Allah Forgive us, and give us the wisdom to learn from our mistakes.
May this war on Iraq and on terror wake Muslims, particularly, Arabs from their deep slumber.
One thing that The Bushman should know is that the Biblical prophecy of the return of Babylon can not be stopped by the shelling of Iraq.It is a prophecy that will come to pass.
"You will please neither the Christians nor the Jews unless you follow their faith"
then again in Sura Al-Imran 3:118
"They will spare no pains to corrupt you. They desire nothing but your ruin. Their hatred is clear from what they say, but more VIOLENT IS THE HATRED WHICH THEIR BREASTS CONCEAL."
In Sura Al-Nisa Allah exposes the greed of nonbelievers 4:53
"Will they have share in the kingdom? if so, they will not give so much as the speck on a date-stone to other men."
again in Sura Al-Nisa Allah very clearly point out our present day dictators and addresses them as hypocrites 4:138
"Give warning to the hypocrites of a stern chastisement: those who choose the unbelievers rather than the faithfull for their friends. Are they seeking glory at their hands? Surely all glory belongs to Allah."
Sura Al-Nisa 4:148/152
".....and those that draw a line between Allah and His apostles, saying:'We believe in some, but deny others,'-thus seeking middle way these indeed are unbelievers......."
In the above verse Allah has very beautifully discribed our(muslim)present day dictators who are seeking help of christians and select what to follow in Islam so as to please their Masters and their god in white house.
What ever the writer has written here is nothing new it has been foretold/forewarned but we did not forearmed ourself spiritualy,morally or physicaly.
It is too bad that this becomes a war in the name of religions, because that is merely an excuse for evil tyrants to take control in order to advance their own agendas. America is ruled by a kakistocracy, which seeks to increase its power and influence no matter the cost. Please know that this evil administration does not speak for all Americans!
