America the Almighty

US leaders are high priests of a low cult. I’d rather listen to Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons.

America is a religion
US leaders now see themselves as priests of a divine mission to rid the world of its demons

“‘The death of Uday and Qusay,’ the commander of the ground forces in Iraq told reporters on Wednesday, ‘is definitely going to be a turning point for the resistance.’ Well, it was a turning point, but unfortunately not of the kind he envisaged. On the day he made his announcement, Iraqi insurgents killed one US soldier and wounded six others. On the following day, they killed another three; over the weekend they assassinated five and injured seven. Yesterday they slaughtered one more and wounded three. This has been the worst week for US soldiers in Iraq since George Bush declared that the war there was over.”
