Some 'Christians' Give God A Bad Name

excerpts from a column by Felicity Arbuthnot. July 1, 2005

Two professed Christian leaders have robbed the world of our collective past. The contemporary Crusaders have left their own historic legacy: napalm, phosphorous bombs, landmines and a land poisoned by depleted uranium waste, radioactive and chemcally toxic, condemning ground, the gracious Iraqi people and indeed the coalition of the coereced and their illegally installed puppet government, to cancers, offspring with foetal deformities, tumours, and the unimaginable. Some 'Christians' give God a bad name.

At the World Tribunal on Iraq in Istanbul, Former US Air Force combat veteran Tim Goodrich stunned the jury by revealing his role in the "softening up" of Iraq months before the US declaration of war. "We were dropping bombs then, and I saw bombing intensify," Goodrich explained to a hushed room. "All the documents coming out now, the Downing Street memo and others, confirm what I had witnessed in Iraq. The war had already begun while our leaders were telling us that they were going to try all diplomatic options first."

As Americans celebrate Independence Day, it may be apt to reflect how that independence was won. It was from defeating occupying forces, fighting for freedom, for 'life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness', just as Iraqis are doing. Were those who won America 'terrorists' or 'insurgents'? Iraqi fighters are largely resistance fighters who want their country and its assets back, and, as Americans were two hundred years ago, are prepared to die for that end.

Soldiers of the 'coalition' have no need -- or right -- to be in Iraq now that the Secretary General of the UN has said the invasion was illegal and a mounting pile of documents are potent witness to the lies on which it was built. In fact, they could return to their countries to find themselves charged with war crimes.
