Bush and Muslim ties: (epublished)


It is reasonable to compare the actions of the United States to those of the Genghis Kahn. It is well documented that the United States was wrong in Vietnam. Senator Kerry is a deep thinker. As a Catholic, he must have been deeply disturbed by the events that occurred in Vietnam. In pre-war Vietnam, the Catholics were the elite ruling class. Even before the Vietnam war, the John F. Kennedy administration admits mistakes were made when the United States became involved in the assassination of the South Vietnamese leader, Diem (1). To start the Vietnam war against the communists, Johnson, a Texan like Bush, manufactured an assault on our vessel in the Bay of Tonkin. At the hands of our troops, villages and homes of innocent people were burned. Innocent Farmers were even stalked by US aircraft with machine guns with the summary judgment that they were Viet Cong. The defoliant, Agent Orange, and napalm were also administered by aircraft (2).

Genghis Kahn was a Mongolian. Horsemen from the Gobi desert, the Mongolians were known for their ruthlessness. They were very successful by the ruthless use of power, taking vast areas from the Christians. However, they indiscriminately killed, burned, and pillaged as they went. The descendants of Genghis Kahn ruled much of Asia, eastern Europe, and Russia as the Tartars. They were also the first to use gun powder and chemical weapons against their opponents. More importantly, however, the successes of the Genghis Kahn and the Golden Horde ("Golden Army") led to the destruction of Manichaeism. The Tartars were Muslims.

Islam and Manichaeism were two religions practiced in the arid regions of Africa and Asia. Manichaeism was a religion originating in Persia in the third century with the prophet Mani. Manichaeism built on principles of Zoroatricism, Mithraism, Judaism, and Gnosticism.
In Manichaeism,

"the world is divided into rival realms of Darkness and Light; the earth belonged the kingdom of Darkness, and Satan had created man. Nevertheless, the angels of the God of Light had surreptitiously introduced some elements of light into humanity-mind, intelligence, reason. Even woman, said Mani, has in her some sparks of light; but woman is Satan's masterpiece, his chief agent in tempting man to sin. If a man will refrain from sex idolatry and lead an ascetic life of vegetarianism and fasting, the elements of light in him can overcome his Satanic impulses, and lead him, like a kindly light, to salvation" (3).

Mani died a Martyr at the hands of the Magian clergy. He was crucified, his skin stuffed with straw and his body was hung from the city gates for all to see. However, it is easy to see that Manichaeism was well adapted to desert life and Manichaeism survived over 1000 years until the coming of Genghis Kahn. Islam was founded by the prophet Muhammed with entirely different pretenses (1). Islam is not a humble religion, as Manichaeism was. Islam began with the prophet, Muhammed. Mohammed was born in Mecca, Saudi Arabia in the 7th century and was a member of the Quraysh tribe. This was a poor, but respected tribe. He wrote the Qur'an after the angel Gabriel came to him in a cave and told him he was a prophet. His wife and son were his first followers. After conquering Mecca, he allowed the practice of Judaism and Christianity as "people of the book". Muhammed believed in a personal God. This is very similar to Puritan culture in the United States (4). Muhammed also believed in social and economic justice. He also practised polygamy. Another characteristic that seems to be shared by Protestant and Muslim culture is X-linked disease. All of Muhammed's son's died in early infancy. X-linked disease produces viable women only, and therefore promotes gene survival by selecting women. Islam is not necessarily humble, Muhammed even modeled his ascension to heaven in Jerusalem on Jesus Christ. However, it is a religion that is clearly adapted to desert-thinking rather than the more communal agricultural thinking of Christianity.

Texas and the Bush administration have clear economic ties to the Muslim culture of the middle east and Texas culture is very similar to Islamic culture. Texas is a desert-like community with few resources besides old petroleum fields. Texas has the highest execution rate in the country. This is also well adapted to desert life and is a characteristic shared with Islam. Interestingly, President Johnson used to actually make people watch him defecate (5). And when you mine wealth from feces, you must be "united". Texas often times refers to itself as the "National State of Texas" and as thus are united against the rest. There are many more similarities/coincidences too. Osama bin laden, for example, was a drug king pin from an oil family in Saudi Arabia. As you may recall, Bush did not deny his substance abuse in his campaign for presidency. And then we end up with another "Imperial Presidency" from Texas. Imperial Presidency is a term first coined by Arthur M. Schlessinger, Jr. (6).

Perhaps Genghis Kahn was the savior of the followers of Mani, uniting them into Islam. But for what purpose? Do you want George Bush uniting this country behind his personal God? Humility brought the Texans into the Whitehouse and it was quickly abandoned (7). It is time to rein in the George Bush administration before his "Hourde destroys" our "united America" and wherever else it wishes to roam. As John F. Kennedy said: "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" (8). Accepting the truth about Vietnam with well deserved humility would be a good start. We also need a thinking person in the Whitehouse who will rule fairly for us all. Then the secret service can help keep George Bush out of your fields.

It may be worthwhile noting that a version of this post was submitted around October of 2004 before the election to several news papers in red states. Note Bush's Easter speech described here on 3/26/2005 as "Thank you Henry!!! Bush explains Easte

And Bush did not know about 9/11 before 9/11!

Bush claims he would VETO any bill that dropped the United Arab company from our port security, yet he just heard of this proposition in the last couple of days!!

Give us a break. Is this administration wasting our time with outrageous statements that they are not responsible for??????

Is this to get Cheney out of the headlines?

Tell it like it is Mr. Vice President

First, there is no beer. ("zippo")
2nd, there was some beer in a cooler. Maybe someone drank some.
3rd, Cheney had one beer 5 hours before the hunt
4th, Cheney had'nt drank for several hours before shooting Wittington

What is it then?

The Sherrif's report, a Texas elected official, interviewed Cheney 48 hours later and did not mention alcohol, but he also showed the wound on the wrong side of the body.

Do we have a problem here? Is Uncle Sam holed up in Texas???????????;_ylt=AqWho_qLSvEltcRcuavN7ywGw_IE;_ylu=X3oDMTA3MXN1bHE0BHNlYwN0bWE-

Why can't he read intelligence reports about WMDs?
