Religious fundamentalism in the American military

This video chills my blood. This is what our ‘senior partner’ in Afghanistan has among its military force. An F16 squadron called The Crusaders! We are supposed to be fighting religious fundamentalism among the Afghani population.

As the commentator says laconically at the end of the video -

It is not the constitution that is guiding us in the Middle East – it is the Book of Revelations. And the Book of Revelations does not end with everybody being happy …”

It certainly doesn’t – and American fundamentalists don’t interpret this stuff allegorically, they believe it literally. 



CLOSING VERSES OF THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
