Jesus wasn't against war. Jesus was against injustice. Jesus was against liars and vile leaders.
The United States of America has the potential of spreading the Gospel throughout the world.
We are not righteous. We are not innocent. However, we do hold to the concept of good and evil. We differentiate between good and evil, which is something that European philosophy doesn't do.
Because we have the potential of spreading the Gospel worldwide, and because the majority of Americans know the difference between good and evil, God has blessed us, and made us what we are today.
There is no government set up, except by the authority of God. And that includes the USA.
The purpose of government is to punish the wicked. Any nation that sits by and doesn't do it's job is worthless, and will be removed.
God removes evil dictators and evil regimes in various ways. One of those ways is through military intervention by other nations.
The USA will win. The USA will continue to prosper and be powerful, because God has made us what we are.
The day that we buy into European philosophy and amoralism, then that's the day that we will fail, and our power and prosperity will be stripped from us.
And by the way, the USA isn't the Whore of Babylon. The Whore of Babylon sits in Europe, in the city of 7 hills, just as the Bible says.
