Bush invaded Iraq because of Bible prophecies. It turns out, his partner in crime, former British Prime Minister of the alleged sane world is as crazy as he was. Tony Blair and current man of "peace" in the middle-east (apparently calling for bombing Iran qualifies you for the job) , a "true friend of Israel" (so was Bush by the way, which makes me wonder if Israeli leaders only consider religious crazies as their "true" friend) often "read the Bible" before he took "really big decisions", and that includes the bombing campaign against Iraq back in 1998.
The former British Prime Minister's former press secretary spilled the goods recently. In his recently published diaries he says:
Tony Blair had a "wobble" on the eve of his first bombing mission against Saddam Hussein after a late-night reading of the Bible, Alastair Campbell writes in his diaries serialised in today's Guardian.
In a powerful illustration of the impact of Blair's faith on his actions, Campbell writes that a New Testament story about Herod and John the Baptist prompted prime ministerial jitters hours before the launch of an Anglo-American bombing mission against Iraq in December 1998.
Campbell, who famously dismissed questions about Blair's faith by saying "we don't do God", admits in his diaries that the former prime minister often read the Bible before he took "really big decisions".
Doesn't this make you all feel warm and fuzzy inside? Knowing two former leaders of the alleged sane world were nearly as crazy as their counterparts in the middle-east?
