Award for Deadliest Crime of First 15 Years of 21st Century Goes to: Religious Extremism

Although multiple motivations can be attributed to every act of violence in history, the deadliest attack of the first fifteen years of the 21st century, the illegal invasion of Iraq, was largely driven by a militant interpretation of Christianity:

In addition to militant Christian fanaticism, “secular” kinds of religious extremism, such as supremacist ideologies and American ultra-nationalism (in addition to strictly material and other motives), were also key factors behind the barbaric attack, which killed and destroyed the lives of millions and destabilized the region.

    Christian
    fundamentalists were just useful idiots in this game. The driving force were
    the Neocons who are largely Zionist.

    Thank you, Robert. I foolishly thought I was going to have to correct you after reading your title, by bringing up the war that came when God sent a message to George W. Bush.

    “Hello Georgie. The voice you are now hearing is not a symptom of alcoholic delusion. This is really a higher power speaking to you.

    “No, this is not the voice of your earthly father either. I want you to destroy the Muslim world and I give you special dispensation for the crime of telling great lies to accomplish this godly work.

    Don’t look behind that curtain. No, that is not Dick Cheney. Pay attention Georgie, This is the voice of a higher power, I tell ya.”
