Democrats talking points are right at home in Russia. Somehow it doesn't suprise me that the Democrats and the Commies of Russia feel the same things about Bush. Read this story and tell me that everything being said by the Russians isn't being said by Reed, Pelosi, Kennedy, and Kerry... I've always said and still say that the Democrat party of the US is really the Communist party.
George W. Bush proves that he does not have the qualities needed for his demanding position
For George Bush, today is a great day. A bloodthirsty tyrant was removed, the people of Iraq have today voted freely for the first time in decades and a nice. Western-style democracy has been installed in a country which never had one. So today, George W. Bush is a satisfied man because he believes it is really that simple.
What George Bush does not know, because he is incompetent to be in his position, is that when the law is broken, someone has to take responsibility for the crime. Let us use an analogy from the Far West. There is a man who terrorizes his neighbourhood and who has killed a number of neighbours who he considered were his enemies. One day a lynch mob not only kill him, but kill his children, set fire to his house and raze the foundations so that a new one can be built. The neighbourhood settles down again.
For cowboy-magazine-intellect George Bush, that is fair enough. But the sheriff might have something to say about it. This is exactly the same analogy that might be used by some lunatic who pulls out a gun, shoots George Bush and claims that he did the right thing because the world is a better place. It is wrong.
No casus belli
Under international law, there has to be a reasonable casus belli for an attack on a country and under the UN Charter, there must be a resolution - a singular and separate resolution - on the use of force. George Bush knew this because so much energy was spent on getting consensus in the UNSC for such a resolution.
Iraq was attacked anyway, against the UN Charter and against international law. The casus belli at the time was that Iraq had WMD. It did not.
So far, we have a broken UN Charter, a breach of international law and an illegal and in the event murderous attack on a sovereign nation. 27,000 civilians were murdered and George Bush is satisfied with that?Appalling behaviour from US Armed Forces and Security ForcesThe many, widespread and shocking cases of torture not only in Iraq but also in Guantanamo and Afghanistan by US personnel, the widespread cases of rape, the widespread cases of disrespect for a person's integrity, the wholesale slaughter of communities going about their daily lives belong to the Middle Ages, a period of our collective history which is thankfully behind us and which we have been trying to digest for centuries.
If George Bush can say he is a satisfied man today after all this has gone on, then he is either cruel and callous and unchristian, or else he needs some help from a healthcare professional.
