Megadeth's Dave Mustaine: 'The Bible Says That The U.N. Is Going To Fail'

Category: General music news Posted: Mar 29, 2007
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently spoke to Revolver magazine about the band's upcoming CD, "United Abominations". The album title is a play on "United Nations" (the self-described "global associations of governments") and the album cover features the United Nations building being destroyed.

"The whole premise of the U.N. was to prevent war," he railed, "but they're totally ineffective. What just happened with Israel and Lebanon, and why did it take that long to stop? Look what happend with Saddam Husein -17 resolutions, and he just kept spitting in their face. And now the "blue helmets" are raping women and little girls in these African countries? Come on! How long is the public going to be blind to this?

"I know I'm not making any friends at the U.N. with this album," Mustaine continued with a harsh laugh. But, frankly, he's not worried. Like many born-again Christians, Mustaine favors the interpetation of the Book of Revelations that views the founding of the United Nations and its eventual demise as part of the prophesied events that will inevitably lead to the Second Coming. "I got saved a few years ago, and I believe the Bible says that the U.N. is going to fail. In order for the predictions in the Book of Revelations to take place, it's gotta fail. I don't ever expect to go there, except to look where the building used to be, you know? I hope that someones going to pull the chain, and that's where the butthole of the United States is, and it just disappears!"
