Talk about stupidity

Many of those who cite that the Bush Administration failed in their strategy often times have no strategy of their own.  While this blog are not run by theonomists, I myself personally have enjoyedsurveying the writing from the Christian Reconstruction movement; as those who are theonomists know, the movement is not necessarily monolithic.  But one thing I appreciate their offer is the idea that “You can’t beat something with nothing!” In other words, you could give refutation to something (Atheism, Liberalism, etc) but you got to have something positive too.  That is why Theonomists are interested in constructing a Biblical concept of culture, legal system, the family, etc.

Yet, there are those withinthe quarters of this movement who are critical of the War in Iraq.  I recently had a discussion on a blog of a known name of the Theonomic Presuppositionalist’s camp that is against the Iraq war.  His name is probably well known to some of the readers here.  Being a protege of Bahnsen, I expected a penetrating analysis of not only why the War is wrong, but in light of the theonomic spirit of “you can’t beat something with nothing!”, I don’t think it is not unfair to expect him to offer a solution.  

What I got was pathetic.  He offered several simplistic and naive suggestion.  The most stupid plan was this:

“Reinstate the Baathist government. Acknowledging our crime in invading a soveriegn nation without justification, the U.S. government should do all in its power to restore Iraq to status quo ante bellum.”

Did you read that? This is the solution that this particular individual wants: To have the old government of Saddam’s reign be reinstated into power!  His blog has discussion about the wrongs of killing innocent people as an evil, yet does he know how many people the Baathists killed?  Are we going to install a government that has formerly been the power hold on the institution that implemented the killings of innocent Iraqis? And does installing this evil government back on its feet mean that American troops will be fighting for the very evil government we removed???  When American troops accidently take the life of innocent Iraqis it is wrong and they should not be given the authority of power, but when a Baathist commit mass murder in Mass Grave Sites, they should be allowed to retain their power.  What a double standard!  And by what Standard is this okay? An arbitrary racial basis?  Is this consistent with Theonomic principles? 

Also, in order for them to rise to power again, aren’t the Baathists going to be killing a lot more people since so much of the South opposed them?  And does this guy even realized that the Baathists are fading?  They are no longer a real political force in the political landscape of Iraq: others have filled the vaccuum.  Iraq is changing.  This blogger doesn’t even realize this.  Yet this individual and others like him go on long emotionally driven diatribes to sound secure in their ignorance by going against their fellow theonomists who have ‘left the camp’ by not supporting them.  Its one thing to give loaded words and lingo to make one feel more confident in one’s position by calling people Neo-Cons, fags and Jewish bankers, but when pressed to lay down a positive plan, we discover that their solution is to bring back a reign of terror for Iraq.  What a plan huh?

When I told him that his ideas were crazy, he had a new entry up, and referring to me he stated,

“beforehand that my proposals for what our nation should do in regard to its waging an unjust war against Iraq would seem outlandish to many (”crazy” as one commentator put it). They are outlandish because we all “know” such things do not happen. For the last century, the winner takes all with no thought to justice.”

But what is his plan for Justice?  What exactly has to be done to make things just according to this Theonomist who sees a threat from the ‘secret government’ that controls the Republican and Democratic Party?

It is to reinstate the Government that has gassed innocent Kurdish villages, tyrannize Shiites, invaded its neighbors, etc. And that’s justice?  And where do you see in the Bible that this is Biblical?  On what theonomic principle?

Further things could be heaped upon this blogger.  But I think this goes to show that those Anti-War Theonomists really need to sit down and think about what they are saying.

A recent documentary powerfully portrays the ideologically driven culture of radical Islam:

Obsession: Radical Islam Part 1 – What the West needs to know
Obsession: Radical Islam Part 2 – The Culture of Jihad
Obsession: Radical Islam Part 3 – The Media of Terrorism
Obsession: Radical Islam Part 4 – Jihad in the West

Obsession: Radical Islam Part 5 – The culture of Denial
Obsession: Radical Islam Part 6 – To Their Own Children!
Obsession: Radical Islam Part 7 – Hitler and the Mufti
Obsession: Radical Islam Part 8 – We’ve Been Here Before

If the above does not work, try this.
