That would be George W. Bush. He couldn’t come crawling out from under his rock when a democrat was president, but now that a (presumably) outsider republican is the big cheese, look who shows up. It tells you the desperation of the elite when they bring out the man who would be tried for war crimes in about 180 countries. Who’s next, Dick Cheney?
Anyway, let’s dive in:
Former President George W. Bush on Wednesday warned against an “isolationist tendency” in the U.S. that he called dangerous to national security…
Much of the world would have been thrilled had Bush held even a modicum of an “isolationist tendency.” And to speak of dangers to “national security” when the deadliest attack on US soil…in maybe forever…happened on his watch would be comical if it wasn’t so tragic.
…he also alluded to the Iraq War, and warned that there is a lesson “when the United States decides not to take the lead and withdraw,” an apparent critique of former President Barack Obama.
Look, I am not one to come to Obama’s defense – the blood on his hands will never wash off. But Bush was in Iraq for over 2100 days before he left office – this is 900 days longer than it took the United States to end the War in the Pacific in World War II…and this includes the recovery time after the destruction of Pearl Harbor.
How much time did he want?
“Vacuums can be created when U.S. presence recedes and that vacuum is generally filed with people who don’t share the ideology, the same sense of human rights and human dignity and freedom that we do,” he added.
This would place at least 6.5 billion people in a vacuum (including many Americans), as they do not “share the ideology, the same sense of human rights and human dignity and freedom” when it comes to things like individuals with a penis self-identifying as women…
The article ended with an ounce of truth:
Bush said at the library the nation needed an independent press, but added that it needs to be accurate.
Yes, we need such a press. I recall a list published a couple of months ago – about 200 alternative sites were identified. Perhaps George should start looking at a few of these.
