Bush was such a moron and globalist tool. He made TAl Queda’s
godfather Musharraf his BFF, instead of toppling and de-nuking him.

Pretty much everything in the speech turned out to be false or not quite correct.

But stuttering man-kissing drunk George Bush Junior got to do the bidding of his Saudi buddies - by ridding them of their foe Saddam Hussein. Thousand of American lives lost -while Saudi young men hung out in shopping malls and in U.S. colleges.

And now Iraq is nearly a province of Iran.

I still don’t believe there weren’t WMD in Iraq. I adored Bush and he disappointed me greatly. He backed away too fast and let the UN take charge. He didn’t prepare an after war plan. He didn’t realize muslims don’t necessarily want democracy. And he didn’t understand that tribes would still rule and that he was just removing one tribe and replacing it with a pro-Iran one.

Trump has shown that there are ways of dealing with the Saudis from strength. It’s really a shame that W still can’t see that.

Then, there’s Bush’s CIA-head George Tenet, a Clinton holdover. Today, he might have been called a part of “The Shadow Government”.
