Another One Bites The Dust
The fanatical regime of Saddam Hussein literally toppled today as a forty foot statue of him was sent crushing to the ground in the center of Baghdad. The citizens of that city showed as much respect for Saddam's image as Saddam had shown to the Iraqi people for over thirty years, by immediately climbing aboard the twisted piece of iron, and beating it with the soles of their shoes; regarded in that part of the world as one of the highest forms of contempt.

The United States military is accomplishing its' task of freeing the Iraqi people in short order. In only three weeks have they pierced the nations' border, driven their forces several hundred miles north, and taken control of every city and town they have entered, including its' capital of Baghdad. Casualties and loss of life of coalition forces have been kept to a minimum, and nothing appears to be left other than the 'mop up' of a few of Saddam's dissidents, and assisting the Iraqi people in initiating their new government. But why so easily? As we stated in our previous commentary, this was a righteous war of good against evil. President Bush follows the Word of God, therefore our military has God on its' side:

"For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil." (Romans 13:4)

Saddam is only the most current in a long line of tyrannical dictators to lose power...but he will not be the last:

"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time." (1 John 2:18)

But, this one too, the Antichrist, shall fall in defeat:

"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." (Revelation 19:20)

Many have tried to rule the world, and all have failed. Others will try, and they shall fail, because they do so through the efforts of their own vanity, and by their own lust for power:

"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened." (Romans 1:21)

There is only One who's Kingdom will last forever. There is only One who is righteous enough to have dominion over all. There is only One who's glory shines above all others. Jesus Christ the righteous:

"...For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen." (Matthew 6:13)

There is only One.
