God, Gog, Magog, and Bush

Here's more proof why I never again want a "true believer" as president. In 2003, while George W. Bush was assembling his "coalition of the willing," he had one hell of an alarming conversation with France's President Jacques Chirac.
Now out of office, Chirac recounts that the American leader appealed to their “common faith” (Christianity) and told him: “Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East…. The biblical prophecies are being fulfilled…. This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins.”
I have little doubt that ultimately that unnecessary trillion dollar war in Iraq was about oil. But clearly Bush's nutty, supernatural beliefs prevailed over logic, facts, and clear thinking.
