It seems pretty fucked up to me

End of President Obama's speech at West Point on 12/01/09:

"America, we are passing through a time of great trial. And the message that we send in the midst of these storms must be clear: that our cause is just, our resolve unwavering. We will go forward with the confidence that right makes might and with the commitment to forge an America that is safer, a world that is more secure, and a future that represents not the deepest of fears but the highest of hopes.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America."

Who is this "God" that the President invokes to bless our "sacred" enterprise to invade foreign lands and kill people?

It seems pretty fucked up to me.

  1. Ultimately it is the same God that Osama bin Laden invokes to bless his "sacred" enterprise to attack foreign lands and kill people.

    It's been done before. All you have to do is read the Bible. I would suggest the Book of Joshua as a good* starting point. . . Does the term Amelekites mean anything to U*Us?



    * or a "less than good" starting point for that matter.
