The shock doctrine, missionary style

We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.
-- Ann Coulter
Unbeknownst to most Americans, that sweeping policy prescription appears to be operative in its entirety. While we have certainly invaded their countries and killed their leaders, the final act is something that has received little if any attention here.

This German news broadcast, which appears to have been produced prior to the 2004 election, details the presence and activities of "radical Christians" in Iraq doing god's work and converting Muslims to Jesus.

Notable quotables:
We, Christians, are always in war.

Some Muslims get very angry.
Q: Wouldn't that mean that your activities can lead to people dying?
A: Our activities can lead to people dying. We are aware of that. But to spend eternity in heaven and not in hell seems like a good deal.

All Iraqis should be converted. All of the Middle East, in fact.

It's a spiritual war.

Conflict is a natural part of the Christian life.

I don't remember seeing this during Amanpour's CNN special, "God's Warriors."
