...before you read further.

Now out of office, Chirac recounts that the American leader [GW Bush] appealed to their “common faith” (Christianity) and told him: “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.”

Words fail me.

I always thought that Bush had a few screws loose, the article goes a long way to proving it.

Re: OMG!
No, what he's saying is "This is the end times, Revelation is at hand and before long the Rapture will take those of us who are true believers away." Our war in Iraq is an attempt to force (or perhaps believed to be merely following) the prophecies of Revelations.

Doesn't "Gog and Magog" sound like a good name for Nickelodeon show?

Yeah, what the hell is Gog and Magog? Sounds more like monsters in a H.P. Lovecraft story...
