Trudy Rubin: Iran is crucial to any Iraq solution
By Trudy Rubin -
It's too bad Gen. David Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker have to schlepp all the way from Baghdad this week to brief Congress.We all know that their testimony will add little and change little.President Bush won't shift course before his term ends. Troops will draw down some, but not below pre-surge levels, and our military will remain overextended. The possibility of shaping a different Iraq policy won't emerge until a new president is elected. ------

Bush and his so-called Christianity
Bush and his reactionary right are pushing the world to the brink of another war, potentially far bigger than the last one, and we haven't seen the last of him yet. He has only months left as in the White House, but he can do a lot of damage in those last months. Bush and his so-called Christianity is as far from Christ and real Christianity as darkness is from the light. Bush's testimony is so contrary to real Christian values that he is working against them, and by doing so is hastening the advance of an anti-Christ world and solidifying anti-Christ sentiment within the same world. By alienating the world through his violent, selfish, and careless policies, Bush is doing more to further the agenda than he is to further the cause of Christ. The depth of his delusion is beyond words; it's beyond description. God help the similarly deluded masses across the United States who are following him.
