Dixie Chicks Iran Iraq War Grammy Win Over Burning George Bush

Jesus Christ, the awaited Messiah of Christianity and Islam, (Koran Chapter 3:40-43) said that “a Prophet has honor, except in his own country and among his own kin and in his own house.” (Mark 6:4). Jesus said to the leaders of his day, “Blind guides, hypocrites, snakes, you deadly venomous brood of vipers. How can you escape being sentenced to Hell? You say, ‘Had we lived in the day of our ancestors we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets. I send you prophets, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your Temples and pursue from town to town, so that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of the Prophet Zechariah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. Jerusalem, Jerusalem the city that kills the prophets who are sent to it. How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings and you were not willing.” (Matt. 23:29-38).

The blood red state Republican Party politicians have claimed repeatedly ad nauseum that they are the party of Jesus Christ and the Democrats are the party of Satan. George Bush has publicly declared a Christian Crusade against the Muslim people of Iraq in the name of Jesus Christ. He told 2 BBC reporters that Jesus Christ commanded him to invade Iraq. Which Jesus Christ was George Bush talking about? The Prince of Peace? Jesus stood on the mountain and said, “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God. Love yourself. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Do not murder. Love your enemies. An eye for an eye is wrong. Be a total pacifist. Do not strike back even in self defense. If a man hits you on the right cheek, do not strike back. Turn your left cheek to him also and let him strike it.” (Matt. 5:38).

Natalie Maines is a singer with the popular country group The Dixie Chicks. Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks was born in Lubbock Texas. Months before the Iraq War began Natalie Maines said at a show in London, England that she was ashamed that President Bush was from Texas, because she opposed the idea of the United States invading Iraq. As a result of this comment, Natalie Maines and the Dixie Chicks faced scorching criticism and even death threats from the American media and public. American country music stations vilified her and refused to play the Dixie Chicks music, even to this very day. Americans boycotted the albums of the Dixie Chicks. This modern Salem Witch Hunt of the Prophetess Natalie Maines forced Natalie Maines to apologize to President Bush. More interestingly, on Nov. 21, 2003, three and a half years ago, Natalie Maines said on NBC’s Today show, "I think people were misled and I think people are fighting a war that they didn't know they were going to be fighting, and I think they were misled by people who should have been asking questions and weren't." This was 3 ½ years before the Scooter Libby trial.

Of all the leading Presidential candidates from both parties only Barack Obama opposed the Iraq War. All the rest persuaded the United States to invade Iraq and voted to do it. In an interview in Newsweek magazine in 2002 former South African President and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Nelson Mandela repeated his call for George Bush not to invade Iraq. President Nelson Mandela said that George Bush was trying to please the American arms and oil industries, whose profits have soared because of the Iraq War. President Nelson Mandela reminded us how America had supported the Mujahideen including Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan against the Russians. President Nelson Mandela said that no evidence had been presented to support the claim that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction and former U.S. Marine and United Nations weapons inspector Scott Ritter said repeatedly in 2002 that “there is no such evidence and Iraq does not possess any weapons of mass destruction”.

Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in jail in South Africa for peacefully opposing apartheid. Vice President Dick Cheney opposed President Nelson Mandela’s release from prison. In 2002 Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud repeatedly called upon President George Bush not to invade Iraq. Prince Saud said in Feb. 2002, “Regime change in Iraq will come with the destruction of Iraq. You are solving one problem and creating five more problems. There has never been in the history of the world a country in which a regime change happened at the bayonets of guns that has led to stability. Our worry now is the new emerging Christian fundamentalism in the United States and in the west. Fundamentalism in our region is on the wane. There, it’s in the ascendancy. That’s the threat.”

The date today is Feb. 12, 2007. Last night the American Music Industry echoed the sentiments of the American voters in November to get out of Iraq now by handing the Dixie Chicks, lead vocalist Natalie Maines, violinist Marty Maguire and guitarist Emily Robison 5 Grammy awards including the top three. The Dixie Chicks brought tears to the eyes of the world wide audience and a standing ovation for their rendition of “I’m Not Ready to Make Nice.” Neither is President George Bush ready to make nice. He has now escalated the war in Iraq and has 2 aircraft carrier battle groups in the Persian Gulf off the coast of Iran. Once again the American mainstream media is leading the charge, churning out story after story about the horrible Iranian regime and their weapons of Mass Destruction which are years away from being built. Russia built the Iranian Nuclear plant in Bushehr Iran and recently delivered 1 billion dollars worth of the most advanced surface to air missiles to Iran.

The Roman Empire believed that it was invincible until the Barbarians and Huns destroyed it. Scott Ritter has a B.A. in the history of the Soviet Union. Scott Ritter was the lead U.S. Marine analyst regarding the Soviet Union invasion of Afghanistan. In the 1960’s China and the Soviet Union backed tiny North Vietnam to defeat the United States. President George Bush is now deploying missiles in Europe on the border with Russia. This is a repeat of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Russia and Iran have now formed an incognito gas OPEC and military alliance. Between them Russia and Iran own half the world’s oil. Russia and China consider the Middle East to be their backyard. This weekend Russian President Vladimir Putin lambasted President George Bush for his insane uncontained use of unilateral violence which has careened the Middle East into chaos. It is abundantly clear now that when the United States invades Iran in the coming weeks, the United States military in Iraq and at home will be slaughtered by China and the Soviet Union. At least George Bush can say that he lost our military and our country in the name of Jesus Christ.
