Bush claims God told him to launch wars

`US President George W. Bush allegedly said God told him to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, a new BBC documentary will reveal, according to details released yesterday.

Bush made the claim when he met Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and then foreign minister Nabil Shaath in June 2003, the ministers told the documentary series to be broadcast in Britain later this month. [..]

Shaath, now the Palestinian information minister, said: “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’,” said Shaath.’

Lots of nested quotes. You’ll figure it out tho, I’m sure. 🙂
