The March 20, 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq surprised and confused most Americans. If the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center on 9/11 were Saudis and not Iraqis, why were we invading Iraq? As President George W. Bush tried to gain support from the United Nations for his plan, he cited "weapons of mass destruction" and mentioned that Saddam had once threatened to kill his father. But were these the true reasons for this invasion? In this article we'll take a look at the events that led up to the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.
It all began on October 12, 2000 when the terrorist group "al Qaeda" attacked a U.S. Navy ship operating in the Persian Gulf. The guided missile cruiser, USS Cole, was docked for refueling in Yemen when it was unexpectedly approached by a small boat containing high explosives. The resulting blast tore a 60 ft. hole in the side of the ship and killed 17 U.S. sailors. This attack was a bold statement by the terrorist group al Qaeda that it intended to attack American targets whenever it had the opportunity.
In the months following this attack, President Suddam Hussein of Iraq initiated a verbal campaign against the U.S. and began making public speeches against America, angry that his military had failed so miserably against the U.S. military in recent Middle Eastern conflicts. An American news reporter was recording one of these speeches in Baghdad when the reporter suddenly became alarmed at a threat that Suddam made concerning a "BIG SURPRISE" that he had in store for Americans. Since Suddam was not known for making idle threats, the reporter made sure the threat was broadcast on the national news in the United States that same day. Suddam's exact words were, "And we have a BIG SURPRISE in store for our American friends."
Unfortunately no one in America paid any attention to Suddam's threat since he had just been so soundly defeated in the recent Gulf War. Americans were not aware that after the war in Kuwait, Suddam Hussein had invited his army generals to a formal dinner at his palace in Baghdad to discuss their experiences during the recent conflict. Two of these generals attending were in fact Suddam's cousins. After dinner was over, Suddam invited his guests to step out onto the balcony where his bodyguards swiftly executed them. Anyone who observes Suddam Hussein's behavior quickly realizes how deadly serious he can be.
On September 11, 2001 the World Trade Center towers in New York were attacked by a group of Middle Eastern terrorists in the biggest SURPRISE for America since the Pearl Harbor attack of 1941. U.S. security officials quickly realized they had missed Suddam Hussein's warning, and decided to launch a retaliatory strike upon Baghdad. This however was not the first warning that was ignored by federal security officials. A previous warning had been delivered eight weeks earlier by CIA Director George Tenet, who called for an emergency meeting on July 10th, 2001, with America's first black female National Security Advisor, Condoleesa Rice. At this meeting, Rice was informed that terrorists may be planning to hijack passenger airliners and crash them into high profile targets in U.S. cities. Rice said that she was more concerned with foreign threats, and only agreed to raise security levels overseas. Eight weeks later, the WTC towers were attacked and destroyed by al Qaeda terrorists.
In 2003 and 2011 America and the West oversaw the removal of Middle Eastern dictators Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Hosni Mubarak, and the attempted overthrow of Bashar al Assad of Syria, in an effort to create new democracies. This foolish move caused a political void that was soon filled by Muslim fundamentalists who quickly seized power from these leaderless governments. Since 2003, over a half million people have died in Iraq as the conflict continues to grow. Saddam Hussein, the third antichrist, has now fulfilled his prophetic duty to start WWIII, and most Americans have allowed political correctness to blind them to the fact that it will not be the Russians who'll start WWIII. The Ottoman empire has now been resurrected and will continue to expand its power base until it achieves its goal of destroying Christianity and its base in Rome.
