For an excellent source with great insight, go to the DEBKA file. Just today, they reveal that indeed Sadaam is linked with Al Quaeda. Certainly, Israel is the main target of the hate and by extension, the U.S. I don’t have time to go into it but my belief is that this is a manifestation of the angelic conflict. Certainly ultimately, the winners will be the Christians with Christ Himself leading the way. He’s already the leader in combat kills with 185,000 Assyrians gone in one night (in the OT). And, for those who’ve decided against Him, He can’t go against His justice. Still, even the lukewarm bugs and his lukewarm country (why WOULD terrorists attack a country that is appeasing and doesn’t stand for anything) can still make a positive decision to believe. Free volition.
