Can We Blame Iraq's Problems on God?

Here's one of today's prayers from the PPT:

"Pray peace upon the city of Baghdad and the nation of Iraq, asking God to defeat his enemies there and bring about His greatest plan for that nation..."

So that's it. Franks didn't have a plan for the aftermath. Neither did Paul Bremer. W certainly hasn't had one. A lot of the Republicans have put their faith in General Petraeus...or so goes the latest GOP talking points. But, now we know who's to blame. God has not brought forth a plan! When Petraeus delivers his assessment to Congress in September, God should be there with him. He needs to come up with a plan and present it to his hand-picked leader of the free world, W.

No surprise here. It's more convenient than saying "Hey, our incompetence ended up screwing everyone over."

or else it's a failure of the PPT...we didn't pray loud enough.

strap: One word: delusion. People see what they want to see. It's hard for a person to accept that what they did or were a part of ended up in the needless deaths and maiming of thousands of people.

You know, at least LBJ and Nixon comprehended the weight of their decisions and felt pain as a result of their decisions. Certain people are so ideological and delusional that they may go to their grave without understanding how badly they #$%#^@^&-ed over so many people needlessly.
