I hear many people referring to themselves as Christians, but they don't love the truth. They don't stand up to say, "Get out of Iraq, you torturers, oil thieves, and liars." They don't stand up to say, "Prove that the Iranians are the primary threat to anyone." They aren't the threat. You are, you neocons. You're the threat. You're the problem.

Iran hasn't invaded anyone in some 200 years to my knowledge. They don't want a war, but they don't agree with what the U.S. has done in Iraq and aren't going to say otherwise.

What happened to all the talk about nuclear weapons? It's all been shifted to a new pretext, that Iran is supplying resistance fighters in Iraq. Even if that's true, those fighters are resisting U.S. aggression that was based entirely on lies told by people who have the morals of torture-dungeon masters. If there is anything called self-defense, those resistors are employing it.

I don't hold with violence. Pacifism is the right path. The resistors though have the lesser evil in the sight of God. George W. Bush and his circle of evil-doers have the greater sin. There is no doubt about it.

Now the neocons that were built upon Israel for the focus of U.S. foreign policy are clamoring for another war before Bush leaves the office of the president. To hell with that idea. Anyone for it is a demon.

The only thing that should happen between the U.S. and Iran is talk and cooperation to lift both peoples out of poverty and into the highest quality of life possible.

Right now, the so-called Surge strategy is proving as ridiculous as predicted. People will do things for money, but their love won't be bought. They don't want to be a U.S. colony in Iraq. They aren't going to cave into it. The Palestinians haven't caved in to it. The Iraqis will be no different. The Surge was stupid.

The way to the Iraqi people is through treating all of them as full human beings deserving of the best treatment that any American ever gets, including George W. Bush. That will win them over, because it's the right way people should treat each other. It will overcome any religious differences. It will open the door to greater understanding and more open non-hostile, non-threatening talk.

The people need to tell the neocons that they, the neocons, don't have the support of the people and will be held to full account for their crimes. I'm not for punishment, but being treated by the rest of humanity as heathens wouldn't be a good thing for them. It will be their own fault if they persist in going down their path of falsehoods.

They are bearing false witness. They don't have the evidence. That's a major sin. If they use it to lead to even more war, on top of the Iraq War that was based on false witness, truly how will they escape damnation?

They certainly will find the gates of Heaven closed and locked to them. No matter how long they cry out, they won't be recognized and rightly so. Jesus won't know them. He will say, "I don't know where you are." It will take a long time to pay back the last penny.

Don't do it. You've been warned.
