Links: | CBS | AP |April 30 (Day 121, Providential Preventative Suffering): The US Marines pulled back in Fallujah to let an Iraqi army try to provide security. Former Iraqi Maj. Gen. Jassim Mohammed Saleh helped organize the Fallujah Protective Army, which will man checkpoints in Fallujah. However, Saleh was not given command of the Fallujah Protective Army as previously reported. Marines will remain on or near the city's perimeter.
After US forces entered Fallujah on April 5, the fighting has continued and inflamed the Iraqis. Gen. John Abizaid, head of US military operations in the Middle East, realized he had no solution. His paradigm had hit the stops. He concluded that a military invasion of Fallujah would lead to Iraqi backlash all over the country.
Last year four Pennsylvania Army reservists were investigated for abuse of prisoners at Camp Bucca in southern Iraq in May. One agreed to immediate discharge. The others were discharged after being found guilty. The senior person in charge at the time of the alleged abuse was Master Sergeant, Lisa Girman, a Pennsylvania state trooper. She was found to have kicked a prisoner in the groin and encouraged other soldiers to do the same thing. The Pennsylvania reservists were also under the command of Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski.
The weather map over the USA today featured the image of a horse that stretched from the Great Lakes to Arizona and New Mexico. Other horses were over the eastern USA. A horse represents war and a male phallic reversionist.
The US Marines pulled back from Fallujah to give the new Iraqi Army an opportunity to restore order. US Gen. John Abizaid had reached the stops with his current approach to military conquest of Iraq. The military cannot provide freedom. It can kill the enemies, but if the people are arrogant, there will be no respect for Laws of Establishment authority and no freedom. Such appears to be the case in Iraq.
Six US soldiers have been charged with abusing Iraqi prisoners at the Abu Ghraib under the command of the only female commander in Iraq, Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski. The name of the Roman god of prisons, Janus, is a homonym of Janice. Janus was called the god of the hinge, arch, and gate as well as the god of the key. Janus as the god of fortresses (Daniel 11:38) has the female counterpart, Diana (Roman) or Artemis (Greek). The idol of Diana of Ephesus was portrayed with a fortress on her head.
Jezebel was the human counterpart of the goddess of fortresses. Abu Ghraib was Saddam Hussein's most infamous torture chamber. Even though the prison was evacuated before the US military arrived, the demons were waiting to entice the Americans just as they had the Iraqis. In both the abuse in Abu Ghraib and Camp Bucca, females were in charge, and Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski in command. All this is the second verse of the story of the Prostitute of Babylon in the Iraq War. The capture of Saddam Hussein from the hole was the first verse. Ever since the invasion of Iraq, Christians have waged Spiritual warfare against the Prostitute of Babylon. The exposure of abuse of Iraqi prisoners is the latest part of the story.
The face on the weather map resembles John Kerry. The face appeared following yesterday's meeting of President Bush and Vice President Cheney with the September 11 Commission. A snake is crawling toward the mop of hair on the head on the weather map. A snake represents Satan. Long-haired males are effeminate and without objective reality. For example, they agree to send women into combat.
This was April 30, for a priest. And it was Day 121 for Providential Preventative Suffering.
