The true reasons for the Iraq invasion?

Over the weekend I saw the documentary The God Who Wasn't There, not a bad movie, not a great one. It started out really well, but was too short and the ending seemed more cathardic for the filmmaker then relevant to the movie.

But it did bring up some interesting things, mainly through the interviews of christians. On in particular:

"101 Last Day Prophecies, just some of the things that are supposed to happen:

Literal Babylon, formerly called "Babel", would reemerge in the land of Shinar, The land of Shinar is known as modern day iraq, and Saddamn Hussien spent over 20 years rebuilding literal babylon. As a matter of fact he had Madonna come in and Christen it."

SCOTT BUTCHER, creator RaptureLetters.com

This prompted me to look up 101 Last Day Prophecies to see for myself. I just can't get around the coincidence of the "Land of Shinar" reference in the rapture, or the coincidence of key members of the bush administration being affiliated with the The Project for the New American Century, a group who had advocated rebuilding the middle east starting with Iraq.

So Iraq is mentioned in the rapture, and the architects for the war in Iraq belong to an organization that advocated just such an action...

Makes me think.
