Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East…. The biblical prophecies are being fulfilled…. This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins.George W. Bush
Christian Crusader; Ex-President
This quote comes from a 2003 phone conversation between Bush and former French President Jacques Chirac. Bush called to get Chirac’s support for the invasion of Iraq. Chirac declined and immediately sought the advice of a scholar to help understand the meaning of the insane reference.
Honestly, as more information emerges from the darkness of the Bush-Cheney years, I am amazed that the world was not re-terraformed at the hands of those zealots. This man had control of a nuclear arsenal tens of thousands of times stronger than that unleashed on Hiroshima 64 years ago. If there is a god, it surely saved us from the likes of George W. Bush.

Edit: First, it occurs to me that you might not know who Gog and Magog are. In a nutshell, they are harbingers of Armageddon. Secondly, on the off chance you don’t believe Jon Taplin, James A. Haught (Editor of the Charleston Gazette and author of the Council for Secular Humanism article), or me, here is a blog post with the original French language article on the topic (with English translation) and here it is in PDF (French-only). I hope this clarifies things a bit.
