This Veterans Day, everyone is honoring our men and women in uniform for their service in times of war. And that’s great and all, but there is one great American warrior who served with honor that we are all forgetting to thank.
George W. Bush.
I don’t understand it. It was easy to overlook President Bush when he just faded quietly into the background after leaving office, but not anymore. This year, with a new book coming out and his brother mulling a presidential run, he JUST WON’T F***ING GO AWAY.
Looks like he’s finally going on his victory tour after WINNING the war in Iraq.
Just because it was won and then OBAMA LOST IT by refusing to commit US ground troops as target practice for insurgents until the year 2465 doesn’t mean Bush doesn’t deserve to bask in the glory of victory.
And like a true PATRIOT, he’s not about to regret his mistakes.
Like this appearance on “Face The Nation” this week, where he said INVADING IRAQ WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. And he has no regrets, except one minor one…
“Do you have any regrets [about sending troops into Iraq]?” Schieffer asked. “I mean, do you ever feel that maybe it was the wrong decision?”
“No I think it was the right decision,” Bush said, but he said he regretted the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) in parts of Iraq.
“My regret is that a violent group of people has risen up again. This is al Qaeda plus. I put in the book that they need to be defeated. And I hope we do [defeat them].”
Yes. No regrets.
The war was the right thing to do and it all went swimmingly. It was a huge success…
…except that one minor thing, which was that, rather than spread Democracy and fight terror, the undertaking directly created the largest, most brutal, anti-democratic group of terrorists the world has seen in the last century, who took over most of the country and installed a version of sharia law that is 100 times more repressive and violent than anything that happened under Saddam Hussein and now represent a national security crisis far more dangerous than the non-existent WMDs that the entire invasion was predicated upon.
But, other than that, no regrets.
That’s why George W. Bush deserves our gratitude on Veterans Day. He makes the right decisions and doesn’t waste time thinking about if they’re actually right.
Sure, a few thousand Americans might die. And sure, 600 might be exposed to 1980’s era chemical weapons and swept under the rug by the Pentagon. But that’s why we have Memorial Day.
We can live with that. (Some more easily than others.)
What the American people won’t stand for is a president who doesn’t respect our veterans. Whether it’s not recklessly sending troops to war in the Middle East or dressing a fool, OBAMA doesn’t respect veterans.
Case in point: today, rather than pay tribute to our veterans, OBAMA went to CHINA and dressed up like a character from Star Trek.
What kind of a way is that to salute veterans. Sure, Obama put out a video message expressing his gratitude (Which Fox News encouraged readers to compare to President Bush’s message) but his clothes tell a different story. His clothes say, “I think dressing up like Spock is how to honor veterans. Just like I used to do in Kenya.”
Even worse, he CHEWED GUM…
Obama emerged from his car chewing gum; he’s a well-known user of Nicorette, the smoking-cessation gum. But Chinese Internet users, accustomed to the highly formal standards of their stiff party leadership, quickly characterized the leader of the world’s most powerful nation as an impolite “idler,” or careless “rapper.”
No wonder we lost the Iraq War because of Obama. In the words of Mike Singletary…
So, this Veterans Day, ask yourself America, which is worse, a president who starts a war that leads to thousands of K.I.A.’s and a terrorist caliphate, or a gum-chewer who spends Veterans Day dressing like a space alien and hanging out with a bunch of CHINAMEN?
These offenses are not equal.
I know where I stand.
Happy Veterans Day, lemmings.
