It turns out that Bush told the French President Jacques Chirac an involved story about the biblical creatures Gog and Magog at work in the Middle East, and how war in Iraq was “willed by God”. This was revealed by Chirac himself in a new book. Chirac was “stupefied and disturbed” by the story.
Bush also told the Palestinian foreign minister that he was on “a mission from God” in launching the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and was receiving commands from the Lord.
UPDATE: A reader points out that The Onion (as usual) solves the mystery of how Dubya received “commands from the Lord” — White House transcripts reveal it was actually Cheney speaking over the White House intercom.
