Thanks to my little system glitch yesterday,
I couldn't address this. Now I can.
Bush was on CNN with The Beard yesterday, and issued, quite possibly, the most ridiculous, insensitive statement yet:
BLITZER: Let's move on and talk a little bit about Iraq. Because this is a huge, huge issue, as you know, for the American public, a lot of concern that perhaps they are on the verge of a civil war, if not already a civil war…. We see these horrible bodies showing up, tortured, mutilation. The Shia and the Sunni, the Iranians apparently having a negative role. Of course, al Qaeda in Iraq is still operating.
BUSH: Yes, you see — you see it on TV, and that's the power of an enemy that is willing to kill innocent people. But there's also an unbelievable will and resiliency by the Iraqi people…. Admittedly, it seems like a decade ago. I like to tell people when the final history is written on Iraq, it will look like just a comma because there is — my point is, there's a strong will for democracy. (emphasis added)
So in other words, Iraq is a blip on the screen? Really? How many more lives are going to be lost to make it a semi-colon to this douchebag? How much deeper into financial and moral bankruptcy does this country have to plunge? Does this feeble-minded fuckwit have any idea the hell he has unleashed upon the planet? Does he read the latest NIEs saying that he has created a more dangerous world?
I guess not.
