Last week, televangelist Pat Robertson went off on George W. Bush for selling us a “bill of goods” to justify the invasion of Iraq. When asked on his show if there was a solution to the current rise of violence in Iraq, he responded:
Right now, what we did — and it was a great mistake to go in there. … And so to sell the American people on weapons of mass destruction, he had WMD and was getting [concentrated uranium] yellowcake out of Africa and all of that, it was a lot of nonsense. We were sold a bill of goods, we should never have gone into that country!
As bad as Saddam Hussein was, he held those warring factions in check, and he contained those radical Islamists. Fix it, no? It’s too late to fix it. It’s unfixable. Those simmering animosities have been there for centuries. They will continue to play out until such times that the Lord brings out of Babylon some evil Antichrist or something.
