There is a theme running amongst world leaders at the moment, a frightening theme of religious beliefs.
Now this would not trouble me if it was just a case of world leaders visiting church on Sundays and taking their children to see the nativity play, maybe a rushed last minute turnout when they would rather be Christmas shopping or watching a good film that is being run by the television companies to placate the viewer and give him Christmas cheer to help him find the will to pay his licence fee.
No- this is all far more sinister. I was watching the program Blair the inside story running on BBC2. He was being interviewed in his warm studio with soft pastel furnishings and photographs of his children behind him. All seemed normal-as in âwow they know how to set up a good old fashioned love scene to remove the viewer from the reality of the mass death and destruction that is taking place in this mans nameâ-normal.
Anyway the interviewer asked Mr Blair what had made him invade Iraq, to which Blair replied âwell the peopleâ. He was asked what he meant by the people and Blair said âwell Godâ. So lets be clear, this slip of the Freudian kind has given us all a warm insight into this mans mental thought processes. Tony Blair believes God has told him to wage war. So lets get this straight, based on the factual intelligence
that you are also aware of:-
1. GOD sent his voice to Al Qaeda telling them to hijack planes and kill thousands of innocent lives apparently he told them if they do this they will go to heaven.
2. GOD then gives the strength to George Bush to mount a campaign of retaliation.
3. GOD then sends his message to Mr Blair telling him to wage war on Iraq and Afghanistan.
4. GOD is giving strength to the resistance fighters or insurgents in Iraq.
5. GOD is giving strength to the insurgent fighters in Afghanistan.
6. GOD is guiding the British troops in Iraq to pursue Mr Blairâs self defined âholy warâ.
7. GOD is guiding the British troops in Afghanistan to pursue the same type of âholy warâ.
Can you see the theme here, some leaders at this present time are chasing the voice of GOD separating themselves from the responsibility of the constant pursuit of destruction across our little planet. It is the new millennium play âgood and evilâ- with the stale old theme-âGOD against GODâ and by the time the final act comes to an end the death and destruction will be no clapping matter.
These men came to power because their egos where driving them on to fill their need for power. Then a few terrorists launch an horrific attack on the world trade centre-Do we respond by looking for the culprits ?-no. The response to the actions of a âfew individualsâ is to launch a war across the world then when the bodies stack up and up- turn to GOD and say he was the one who told you to do it.
Thatâs a bit like the little boy who breaks your window then tells you it was the bigger boys who made him throw the stones-just replace the glass theme with bodies. Get real Mr Blair- the death and carnage in Iraq and Afghanistan at this time was sanctioned by âYOUâ so deal with it-just like the people of Iraq and Afghanistan have got to do.
Why would any GOD send out so many mixed messages designed to cause death and destruction to a planet that GOD himself apparently created? Is this GOD such a sadist or did he leave the earth to us to live or die on by our own stupid war mongering foolish choices-driven by egocentric leaders who gained the trust of their respective nations in order to play at war albeit- from a great-great- distance ?
Britain does not need anymore VOICES from GOD it desperately needs a leader with some cold crisp- COMMON SENSE.
