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.

The down fall of a man is definitly not the end of his life.Life is infinite unless otherwise declared by Allah.America may be conqureing and winning nations on thier side.But remeber the fall and humiliation of the "defeated" is just enough gumption for him to learn how not to do things the way he did or how not to fight a war.The muslims will be better prepared in future.When the time comes the American peolple will lead the war against their own leaders and country.The day will come is almost near.The situation will be vehement and the shall be guided only by the facts of real justice.We will all die one day but what is our ultimate effort in the direction of peace with justice.

Let me to you something John Stanton, Bush hates Muslims, Bush hates Christians but Bush loves jews and freemasons and he loves most of all, Dajjal. All Muslims are preparing when the Dajjal comes and for you who don't know Dajjal is the Anti-Christ who shall be considered the Messiah for the jews. He shall be blind in one eye and have the letters KFR on his forehead which stand for Kufr (disbeliever). He shall be the evil in this world that will eventually shall be beaten by Jesus peace be upon him. Get this straight the Muslims may of lost the battles so far but I guaranttee you this the Muslims shall win the war.

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)


ALLHA, protect the religion of ISLAM.

what is the point in criticizing arab muslims. when muslims here have not done much to change the political scenari inthis country. how many muslims are their in the senate . inrefernece to mr. kabweir comments which are only partly right. when one muslim is in trouble the other who is in better position has habit of criticizng them what if the same calamity befell them what would they. do. As we all know that in islam it is your duty to protect the right and property of another muslim. already 600 imams from around the world have given afatwaa regarding ajihad onthis situation which is currently happening. the muslim leaders in this country are only bothered about their position and their wealth unfortunately. In a hadith which is well known. there is no hope for people who cannot speak against atyrant. and the position of the muslims who do jihad is better than who do not.If muslims here can make bold statements they should also practice. it what ashame If they were in the same position as the palestinians. and the Iraqis probably they would know. Saddam only tried to prevent Iraq from disintegrating .and killed the ones who threatened the soveirgnty of his countyr I think every leader would do the same thing. look what is happeneing in INDIA. how many muslims are being killled. muslims should stop criticiaing and get united now before it is too late. or else not even will these people let half of them live by the middle of the century. do not wait for any mahdi. he will come at ihis prescribed time. stop thinking and start working for unification of the UMMAH which the disbelievers do not want.

George Bush would have trampled Jesus Christ himself in order to kill Bush's enemy, Saddam Hussein. In fact, Bush did trample and kill Christ, as your article's picture of the wounded child shows, for Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." But Bush is not the only one to blame; his mentality is shared by those Arabs willing to kill children for their nationalistic goals. Until we are all willing to value each other's children as we value our own, we will continue to see suffering like this and worse in the years to come.

It is not too far from the truth, America had double standard for every thing. hypocrisy R us. we would not war on iraq if it was not for the simple facts, Iraq has oil , and it is an enemy of israil. so let's tell the truth once .shall we.

Just make it up as you go, huh. Guess that's what "writers" do so they can make a buck.

asalamualakem, rasul pbuh said anytime u dont judge by quran and sunna allah sends and enemy to take some of your posession. also rasul pbuh said anything good from allah anything bad from your own eveil deed.this is the arabs own fault they had strayed away from sunna and practiced inovations nationalisem, and kingship witch is harram..allah has removed islam from their hearts and gave it to another people. this is the arabs punishment in this life but next life its more servere . rasul pbuh said the horns from satan rises in the east. u may be offended but there no islam in east only when mahdi comes belivers will come to him from all over world, allah knows them but u do not.arabs 4 centuries has practiced curtral,rasicem,tribal preferrence and even refused to marry there daughters outside there faimilies how could allah love you .. rasul pbuh said in the ends of times people will recite quran and it wont go pass there throats..the best islam in usa and the belivers all know this. rasul pbuh said people will be calling u from the gates of the hell fire the companion said who might they be the rasul pbuh said they wil be from this ummah the arabs they will speak the same language u speak they would come with some good but it will be tainted with evil who ever responds 2 their calling will surley enter hell.. this is the scholars giving fatwa on suicide bombing witch is harram the rasul pbuh had 4 biddenfor u to kill your self or orther innocent people. arabs are astray and has left the folds of islam.from dynasties to racesisem to nationalisem to curtralisem to kufur.. i just call a spade a spade asalamualakem

I think saddam was the right person in right place for such rowdy public who is looting their own country what ashame. what afreedom. the west is giving. I think the western media. has tried more to spoil his image. although he was no saint. but his approach to his people was wrong although his intentions might not have been bad. but the intentions of the liberators do not seem to be right. they are only trying to achieve the oil wealth. why did they not go and protest the killings of the kurds and the shias.during those years why now. because the economy in Us is interrible shape.

You are not a Muslim, nor a Christian ... how dare you try to inflame us by such out of context jibberish. American oil companies have NOT made any agreements to exploit Iraqi oil, in fact they have already stated that they would NOT get involved until after a new government was elected. The US has already asked OPEC to include Iraq so they would be in control of their oil production more quickly.
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.

Mr. Stanton.

Your hate mongering is an embarrassment to those who offer logical argument against the war. Shame on you.

Such propaganda!!!!!!!!!!! You portray the US as nothing but capitalistic mongols and that our mission there is nothing more than to establish US dominance in economics and to abolish Islam. Do you really think the majority of the Iraqi people are happy with their lives under their current leader???????? I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with your views altogether. I don't blame the Iraqi nation as a whole for 9/11, but I do believe Saddum has ties to Al Queda. Personally, I would rather have seen an assassination team sent to Bagdad to take out Saddum, his sons, and his ministry leaders instead of an invasion of US troops.

Rick Kehrer

Mr. Stanton,
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,

Jane Diane Andrews

Yeh! I bet you'll enjoy this poor boy with arms blown off dance in the liberated Iraq.

When Sadaam came, Iraqi people where celebrating then and now America comes they are celebrating again. These people are bound to be humiliated time after time; they are made with material, which has no pride. When America will impose new regime which will maintain to keep its status quo and after some time they will become slaves again and then I would say ask you mother and sisters to dance for you because that is what you deserve. They fail to understand that America is not there to liberate them, they are there to benefit one way or the other, even at the cost of their lives and any pride if they have any.

The real enemies of Muslims and Islam are those Muslims who help 'others' in the destruction of Islam and Muslims. The 'Muslim enemies' are a threat for the entire Islamic world. Unless they receive support and help from Muslim traitors, no one can destroy Islam or Muslims.

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.

Irqi is Free! Let's Dance and Celebrate

Assalaamu alaykum. I hope you are all watching the news these days, and seeing what many of us, Muslims and otherwise, already knew. America is liberating the people of Iraq from an evil plague, one which the Muslims were unwilling to do anything about. Has it ever occured to you that Divine Will might just be behind this war? What do you think that anyone of the million people Sadam murdered might have to say about the war? Why do so many Muslims stick their heads in the sand and deny the obvious? Why has Allah chosen to make America powerful, and make the Muslim countries so weak and, in truth, cowardly? Why have so many millions of Muslims made their homes here in the USA? Is it, perhaps, because Muslims are free to speak their minds and practice their religion here, to the extent that is possible in no other country in the world? As I type this, there are millions of people in Iraq who are thanking their Lord, Allah Almighty, for their liberation from the brutality and virtual slavery of the the last 25 years. As the days go by, listen to the stories that come from the mouths of the Iraqi people, who for the first time in memory, can speak openly, without fear of having their doors broken down at night and get dragged away to one of the many torture chambers in which so many thousands of Iraqis have died in. When will you stop hating America, and thank Allah that he has chosen America to bring back dignity and the real possiblity of peace and prosperity to Iraq?

May Allah Forgive us, and give us the wisdom to learn from our mistakes.

_Abdassalam Granger

thanx for such an article and the biblical version of war and military mentality.

America is full of diverse people and religions. I do not believe that the Bible, or God for that matter, is the dictator of how I treat or view people. Generalizing a country as a whole based on one of hundreds of different religions is ludicrous. I would welcome most into my home with open arms not guns raised regardless of religious beliefs or origin.

I am still stunned by islamicity's loyalty to Saddam. Saddam can HARDLY be called a devout Muslim, he, and the Iraqi society in general is nominally Muslim at best. Similarly, I think Bush is nominally Christian at best, I don't think his Christianity plays a part in ANY of this. Why must every Arab nation bring play the "world against the MUSLIMs card." I would say that that card was valid for Afghanistan, a theocracy, but soceities that are largely secular and nominally Muslim need to stop playing this card for EVERYTHING. It will get tired. Ask Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton if such cards can be overused.

This article is of truth and matter-of-fact. I have watched in the TV the speech given by James Woosley at the university of UCLA couple days ago, when trying to sell the Bush administration's war on terror and on Iraq to sway student's opinion. He along with his group is currently making tours throughout major American university to influence students. This article is full of facts and indeed a great work.

May this war on Iraq and on terror wake Muslims, particularly, Arabs from their deep slumber.

This article is pure propaganda, that photo on the cover is horrible but how do we know it was a U.S. bomb that did this. Our bombs are accurate up to five feet, the Iraqi's aren't. While civilian casualties are horrible. Where was the Muslims outrage when Saddam gassed 100,000 Kurds, or when his crazy kids violated Iraqi women, used torture on his citizens. Where were those photos's in the Muslim world where was the outrage, where were the protesters. More importantly where was the U.N. THe writer wrote this article for one purpose to incite Muslim hatred towards the U.S. Have you seen the photos of Iraqi's cheering the U.S. in Baghdad, or tearing down the statue of Saddam in the Muslim world. No because your media is one sided propaganda,just like this article.

i condemn the US led invasion of Iraq. the so called coalition will be over very soon once Allah the merciful vent His anger on these psycho killer! be brave my muslim brothers in iraq, we, your brothers will pray for the fall of the coalition army and they will get the wrath of Allah. the will receive the tremendous blow in the history of human being.

This article can be proven invalid by one simple fact. This article declares that Bush 'takes his orders from the Lord', specifically from the Biblical old Testament Numbers passage of Chapter 31. Well, as any educated person should know, the majority of the United States is Christian. Bush is Christian. Christians, although they respect, revere, teach, and learn from the Old Testiment, generally consider the Old Testiment a collection of the past, know as the "Old Law." Christianity revolves around the teachings of the New Testiment, in which Jesus exempts much of the previous teachings with messages of love, hope, and peace for all mankind. Thus, basing the actions of Bush by his supposed following of the Old Testiment is completely inconclusive, and should not be considered when discussing the topic of the War for Iraqi Liberation. And, if you haven't noticed, the Iraqi's in their new liberated country are praising their newfound freedom, and destroying the symbols of their previous oppressant regime.

This article has been written as a wakeup call. It is using psychology of media to deliver its message. Muslims need to be vigilant about these issues which is used to divine humanity. Also if each person on this globe respects humanity the earth will be a better place to live in. Media will always twist stories and try to appeal to a special set of people by directing them towards their way of thinking. Surely, muslims and the International community are more united in strengthening the unity of humanity rather than dividing it.

Thank you.

Now Americans celebrate their "heroic victory" in Iraq. To them I say: You reap what you sow. All the suffering you inflicted on thousands of innocent men, women and children, all the agony and pain... God Almighty will magnify it a thousand fold before throwing it back at you. I already feel sorry for you.

Iraqi Freedom. Yes. Shoot the Iraqies & Free their soul from bodies. Bush & Blair sings the freedom song once again.

The evil of the racist Bush is no more news to those that still have the ability to think. Is it the indiscrimate way at which he settles his personal vengeance and that of his cohort in the name of attacking terrorist that worths talking about? or the way he and his cohort murdered democracy in America by denying people the right to choose their leader?
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.

I hate Bush, because I refuse to admit an inferior like him to be any where above me. Plato said people who do not participate in politics risk being governed by their inferiors. This seems to be true but alas I do not have enough money nor is my father a rich man. Only way American's can learn the cost of this war is if same happens to them what is happening to Iraqis and next time when 9/11 happens you will see me smiling, and I would say; 'you dumb $$$$ you deserve it for your stupidity, arrogance and unwillingness to question your own stupid leader". In that respect Middle East seems much better since ordinary people are less willing to buy in to their regimes propaganda than Americans. I doubt there are any American's brave enough to fight for rights of Iraqi people, if they had taken a pool to ask this question, it would have been about 1%. So why ask, just jump in and there are enough hicks and trailer trash that are willing to ride the wave of patriotism and fake bravery as long as casualty is low.

You people are out of your minds and completely out of touch with REALITY. Those of you who made comments on this site talking about grammatical errors and how there is no mention about the evil of SADDAM??? HEY BUDDY, turn on your local US news station to get an update on teh evil of Saddam, we ALL KNOW ALREADY!! What people fail to recognize, because the US MEDIA once again is the one with all it's power through corruption of minds in the United States, veils the true motives of President Bush. Those who recognize in his speeches when he says he hopes for a "Domino Effect in the region", or taht "God is on our side", and that this is between "Good and evil", and instaed you talk about how people are failing to recognize that it is all abotu the oil??? HEY, go to your local protest against this war and you will see people are not as stupid as you think they are. Bush is a so-called Christian who is using the residue of anger after 9/11 to justify and maintain support for this war, using Christianity as his motivation, EASILY noticed in his speeches. yet you Accuse people like this author of hating Bush?? Why couldn't you people recognize the tragedy inflicted on this little boy instead of talkign about NONSENCE!! Do you have any shame?? As for this little boy, his mother, father, and brother, were all killed by an American attack, and he survived, with his Aunt takign care of him right now, AND do you know he says if he does not get artificial limbs, he wants to die?? How would you like it if the same destruction came upon you?? Do you have any right to defend your precious President Bush by saying he has nothing to do with this?? Him and his administration have COMPLETE blame for this animalistic, barbaric, cowardly attack on innocents. GPS Guided missiles and bombs aren't working!! What do you say to this?? You think you can come up with a solution to everything? Bomb the hell out of a city before invading it on foot,nice plan, indeed Cowardly,Inhumane!

For any country/nation to progress it is very important to learn lessons from not only their own history but also world history, in this case being the historical relation between Islam and christianity. In Qur'an it self Allah has over and over reffered to history of other nations so as to give paralels of actions and their consequences. In Quran Allah haas very clearly declared Sura Al-Baqara 2:120
"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.

This guy really hates Bush. I think he's blinded by his hatred. Bush is no more a religious fanatic than Saddam was a good muslim. That's the funny thing about people like the author. Not one word about the well documented evil of Saddam. Very Strange.

It is unfortunate that the author does not do a better job of proof reading for grammatical and spelling errors, but the article is informative. I only wish the Iraqi people could unite with other nations in the Middle East to overthrow the despots who oppress them, then stand firm against the blatant attempts by the Bush administration to again subjugate them.

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!
