Good Gog

Here's a new reason to think George W. Bush was dangerously insane. According to Jacques Chirac, W. tried to win France's support for the unnecessary and super-expensive war in Iraq via a Kiruv Klown-like appeal to the book of Daniel.

For realsky.
The president of the United States, in a top-secret phone call to a major European ally, asked for French troops to join American soldiers in attacking Iraq as a mission from God. 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.”
Thinking this line of argument might work on the ultra-secular leader of ultra-secular France is a little like thinking you can save Tinkerbell's life by clapping your hands. And, never mind how how downright terrifying is it to learn that we were led for 8 years by a dope who was willing to risk literally everything on his own borderline interpretation of a cryptic 2000 year old snippet of text. Just wow.
