Over 250 US/coalition troops, 10,000+ Iraqis killed in Iraq? Blame God.

A few days ago, I noticed this odd story in the Moscow Times, where Ha'aretz supposedly had a transcript of George Bush claiming that God told him to attack Afghanistan and Iraq. I thought it was the kind of "news of the weird" that occasionally surfaces in the Russian media, so I did a search over at Ha'aretz that came up empty... so I ignored the story and didn't mention it in my journal.

But apparently Ha'aretz now confirms the story. Namely, that Dubya said the following to Mohammad Abbas, the President of Palestine:

"God told me to strike at al-Qaida and I struck them, and then He instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me, I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them."

So, sounds like Bush is either
A> A liar and a blasphemer who mocks and manipulates people's religious beliefs for his own purposes.
B> a religious fundamentalist nutcase with serious psychological problems and delusions of grandeur.
C> Both.

God is telling me to vote for someone else.
