Lt. Gen. Robert Gard (Ret,) discusses his recent letter to Congress urging their abandonment of the pending House Resolution 362, Congress’s insistence that the resolution is not threatening violence while demanding a military blockade – an act of war, the predictable repercussions of an on Iran for our troops in Iraq, the failures in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the refusal of the War Party to compromise – unlike Iran.

One Response to “Robert Gard”

  1. Merely ignoring the Truth about the theological dimensions of this conflict will *not* protect you from the horrific consequences.

    From http://after-the-false-peace.blogspot.com/ :

    The Missed Opportunity of the Nitwit Theologians at Madrid

    Look.

    Your responsibility as theologians (rather than politicians) is to understand not the psychological, sociological, economic, political, criminal justice and/or military origins and dimensions of terrorism; but, rather, the theological—that is, the Doctrinal—origins and dimensions of terrorism (something about which you should be experts, but are not).

    And the Doctrinal origin of Zionist terrorism, Christian-Zionist terrorism and Islamic Fundamentalist terrorism is precisely the same:

    The disinterpretation of the Doctrine of “resurrection” as a doctrine of the physical raising of a dead body from the grave, when it should be understood as, instead, a Doctrine of ‘Rebirth’…

    A Truth which, of course, the mainstream, ‘alternative’ and Internet media have been handsomely rewarded for ignoring.

    Nor will the problem of terrorism be either defined or resolved by stressing “the main convictions that we have in common.”

    After all, the Doctrine of “resurrection” is officially denied and repudiated as being a Doctrine of ‘Rebirth’ by the vast majority of Jewish, Christian and Muslim theologians, while being correctly understood only by a small minority comprising certain Jewish and Muslim mystical sects.

    Nor can there be any “constructive dialogue” unless it is first understood that allowing the perpetuation of the disinterpretation of the Doctrine of “resurrection” not merely establishes a fundamentally destructive dialogue; but, also, flashes a ‘green light’ for a full-scale military confrontation between Judaeo-Christian civilization and Islamic civilization…

    For which you will be directly responsible because of your perversion of the Truth about the Doctrine of “resurrection”…

    All of which will most likely not even be publicized by the mainstream, ‘alternative’ and Internet media until it is too late.
