War eradicates Christianity in Iraq and Afghanistan

Despite long-term U.S. military occupations aimed at establishing representative governments in Iraq and Afghanistan, a real threat exists that Christianity now faces eradication in those countries. This is due to severe and persistent persecution of Christians there, according to the chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.

“We are looking at two different countries where the United States invaded, occupied, changed their governments in the last decade–Iraq and Afghanistan–where it’s possible Christianity might be eradicated in our lifetime?” CNSNews.com asked USCIRF Chairman Leonard Leo in a video interview.

“Yes,” said Leo, “and, unfortunately, that is sort of the pattern throughout the Middle Eastern region. The flight of Christians out of the region is unprecedented and it’s increasing year by year. It’s a very, very alarming situation.”

Similarly, despite the “Arab Spring” rebellion in Egypt earlier this year, the survival of Christianity is also threatened in that country because of the escalating persecution of Christians.

    There was never any intention to establish “representative” governments, and there hav never been any such aims in the history of the United States. One needs look no further than Central and South America for evidence. They only wanted to get control of the oil in Iraq and establish a presence against Iran. In Afghanistan they wanted access to oil pipelines and proximal influence against Pakistan.

    Tow million Iraqi civilians were killed by the invaders, whose war of choice was based entirely on lies, deception and duplicity. The occupations were so hated that the once secular Iraq became radically Islamist. This story is repeated elsewhere in Mid East countries where the US tries in vain to suppress democracy from gaining hold. It uses all means (mostly unethical and murderous) to maintain pro-US puppet dictators so that they provide the US with energy access and strategic military concessions.

    Naturally, the majority populations begin to revile not just the oppressors and their proxies but the religions and cultures which they represent, and this is understandable while deeply tragic.

    The more that the US alliance tries to impose its will on foreign lands, the more their religion and culture will be loathed by the populations there. Christian minorities have been well tolerated and accepted before the reviled US governments imposed their will in all its ugliness on these countries.
