Gog and Magog Made Me Do It

It’s still cringe-worthy to recall that the utterer of these words was elected to lead any nation, let alone one of the most powerful:

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.

In case you are wondering, it is not a hissing soliloquy by Gollum, but George Bush’s motivational speech to goad former French president, Jacques Chirac, into the war on Iraq.

I kid you not.
