  I hate it when politicians that represent a nation, include their religious beliefs in speeches.  This gives the impression to other nations that the entire country believes in the same religious beliefs as the politician.

I'm just curious from a philosophical standpoint, who is responsible for murders that may or may not be incurring during America's war on terror.  Is it the individuals on the ground that actually commit the act of killing another (or multiple) human beings, or, from the religious viewpoint, does god hold the parties that  created the war responsible.  On opposing sides, one God of the extremist Islamics tell believers to murder those that wish speak ill of Islam.  The flip side is a God that tells believers that murder is a sinful act unless there is cause. 

So all Christians need to do is find cause.

Do not put anyone to death without cause. (Deuteronomy 5:17, BBE)

Religion IS the problem.  Kids on the internet sign up to participate in Islamic extremist groups through a website, volunteer to strap a bomb to themselves and run into a crowd of people on a kamikaze mission so they can be honored in heaven.  Delusions of grandeur and mere brainwashing if you ask me.

Who does God hold responsible regarding Hiroshima and Nagasaki?  The person that created the bomb, the person that gave the final order to execute the dropping of the bomb, the person who flew the plane, the person that dropped the bomb out the back of the plane? 

Should we go after and kill the terrorists?  YES.  Absolutely.  That's what we're there for, isn't it?  In a perfect world, that would be great if no innocent parties were injured while finding the terrorists and killing them.  That's in a perfect world.  From a Christian's belief, one could avoid calling it murder by stating the terrorists are corrupt and evil.  Realistically however, can we go after the terrorists and eradicate them without innocent bystander casualties?  Obviously not. 

So the question really becomes: 

"Can we afford to go after the terrorists knowing that innocent people will be killed in the process?"

Most people would say yes because it doesn't directly involve them, or they aren't affected by it.  Others might argue that American lives are more valuable than Iraqi lives.

God killed humans during the flood, justifying it by his judgment. 
"Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. (Genesis 6:11-12)"

Did God break the sixth commandment and kill?  His act was malicious, with intent, knowing full well that if he flooded the earth, the "corrupt and evil" would die.  It wasn't an accident, it was thought out and planned and therefore, premeditated.  According to bible scholars, God did not commit murder because the people he killed were evil and corrupt. 

Now, knowing that killing isn't murder if the "wrongdoers" deserve it in the name of God, we are entitled to eliminate the "corrupt and evil" as we see fit!  Thanks Bible!

"Your Honor, I killed this woman because God hates women as evidence in many passages of the bible." 

You're free to go.
