"Re: Dewey -  America Is Not Babylon"

I usually just love reading mails without responding much but I feel like I have to respond to your letter because of your insistence that because you choose not to believe something therefore it cannot be true. Mind you, my purpose is not to convince you of anything. It seems your mind is already made up not to believe the truth even though all facts should point you towards such direction.
You Said:  America is America, not Babylon.
My Response: Since you're choosing to interpret babylon to be the literal Babylon in Iraq .....
According to scriptures, it states: "Cush was the father of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the earth ..... The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Uruk, Akkad and Kalneh, in Shinar" Gen. 10:8,10. NIV
Ok .... so now we have established that Babylon was founded by none other than Nimrod himself.
However according to the following scriptures, speaking of Babylon it states: "Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed"... Jer. 50:12
My Question Is: Who is babylon's mother? And why is she
confounded and ashamed at the time of Babylon's destruction?
