A timely piece written by Dr. Michael Chossudovsky, who is a geo-political analyst and author. His reflections are more aligned with the New Testament than some of America’s more famous Evangelicals who are actually mouthpieces of “Caesar” and conquest more than for Jesus of Nazareth. The US is the most powerful nation on earth ever.
The New Testament even calls death an enemy. Why would any Evangelical want to partner with an enemy of God to mass murder thousands or millions of people through warfare and bombs?
As Chossudovsky reflects here:
“We must understand that: “Crime against God and man himself” is now part of a Pentagon military agenda which consists in using nuclear weapons on a preemptive basis (self defense) against alleged enemies of America. In Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, “one hundred thousand people were killed or doomed within 9 seconds”, on the orders of President Truman. And the Americans were told that Hiroshima was a “military base”.
“His Ways and His Purposes”
Theologians can ponder on the implications of Truman’s words which are embedded in the mindset of US foreign policy makers from George Kennan who formulated the “Truman doctrine” to the Neocons.
