Holy warrior

Some of you may remember my original claims that Bush was painting this as a holy war (more; third movie down). More recently I've been quoting Lt. General Jerry Boykin, the deputy undersecretary of Defense under Rumsfeld. About a year ago he was giving a talk with photos taken in Magadishu — one of the photos had a dark mark over the city. He interpreted it literally,

This is your enemy. It is the principalities of darkness. It is a demonic presence in that city that God revealed to me as the enemy.

There was a man in Mogadishu named Osman Atto. He said, "They'll never get me because Allah will protect me. Allah will protect me." Well, you know what? I knew that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol. [Other nations] have lost their morals, but America is still a Christian nation.

[They hate us] because we're a Christian nation. We are hated because we are a nation of believers. [Our] spiritual enemy will only be defeated if we come against them in the name of Jesus. I want to impress upon you that the battle that we're in is a spiritual battle. Satan wants to destroy this nation, he wants to destroy us as a nation, and he wants to destroy us as a Christian army.

Boykin believes the world is in good hands under Bush, because,

[Bush is] a man who prays in the Oval Office. George Bush was not elected by a majority of the voters in the United States — He was appointed by God.

This all plays out in an apocalyptic game that Boykin almost sounds like he's looking forward to, saying,

We in the army of God, in the house of God, and in the kingdom of God. We have been raised for such a time as this. Anyone who puts on the armor of God becomes a target for Satan. Be ready. He will be coming. He'll try to stop you from doing what God wants you to do. But you knew that already.

Rumsfeld says that he won't do anything to stop him, because he doesn't want to interfere with “free speech” — what he of course ignores is that when a highly decorated general who's getting promoted to higher and higher positions says these things in uniform, he's saying them for all Americans… in effect telling terrorists that, yes, this is a war of Jews and Christians trying to destroy Islam (which I don't believe it is, but Boykin probably does).

Oh, and I am currenty receiving spam at a rate of one every 4.3 seconds. I believe I have determined the source… could it be… SATAN?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
