Bush still in state of denial

By | January 28, 2007

George Bush, U.S. president during the State of the Union address on 28 January 2003:

“Throughout the 20th century small groups of men seized control of great nations, built armies and arsenals, and set out to dominate the weak and intimidate the world.”

Wow, for once Bush is not lying. Of course, I’m assuming that the “small groups of men” refers to Bush and his cronies. Don’t believe Bush will make such a stupid confession? Well, what do you expect from a president who once said: “It’s amazing I won. I was running against peace, prosperity, and incumbency.”

And Bush has consistently got one thing wrong. Iraq is not a war; it’s an occupation. In a war, you can either win or lose, and there is some sense in talking about staying the course. In an occupation, you have two options: annex the country, or leave. Do the Americans really want to annex Iraq?

So there is only one option remaining. It remains to be seen how many more people have to die for a lie.
