BBC Documentary: God told Bush to go to war

I’m not sure which is more horrifying god talking to George Bush or George Bush thinking that god is talking to him.

Stefan Jones says: “Dang. Here I was cynically blaming oil companies and neo-conservative hawks for goading Bush into invading Iraq. It turns out God gave him the idea.”

President George W. Bush told Palestinian ministers that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq – and create a Palestinian State, a new BBC series reveals.

[Palestinian Foreign Minister] Nabil Shaath says: “President Bush said to all of us: ‘I’m driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, “George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan.” And I did, and then God would tell me, “George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …” And I did. And now, again, I feel God’s words coming to me, “Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East.” And by God I’m gonna do it.'”
