George W. Bush called Iraq war ‘unjustified and brutal.’ He meant Ukraine.
…from the Washington Post
[ Editor’s Note: Georgie Boy is the gift that keeps on giving, with speaking flubs, but still not in Trump’s league, as his mouth is in full gear all the time. He’s a machine gun flubber who never runs out of ammunition, as he just invents it in his mind when needed.
It is slips like this that create opportunities, however slim, to wake the American public up on how they get hustled over and over on the ‘war game’. We just had a new confirmation about the US attempt to overthrow Venezuela, with the wannabe new rulers wanting the US military to come in, versus the commando presidential assassination plan, the one that flubbed.
Bush is only two years older than Gordon and I, an embarrassment to our generation, including the taxpayer money wasted to train him as a fighter pilot to snag one of those cushy National Guard slots.
He attempted a recovery of the speech goof by praising Zelensky, whom he called a “cool little guy” and “the Churchill of the 21st century,” two political grifters showing love at first sight.
The speech writers need to check their history notes on who is leading the pack on overthrowing countries and installing puppet regimes.
It sure as hell isn’t Putin, as he has two key focuses, Russia’s borders, and proxy terrorism, which is why he went into Syria, as Muslim jihadis were going there to get combat experience to then return to Russia and create terror cells.
I will let you guess what UN Security Council member country might have launched and supported that scheme as a destabilization tool on Russia.
When Putin was once asked by the press why he was in Syria, he responded that it was better to fight and kill the jihadis from Russia in Syria, as opposed to waiting for them to come home and train terror cells.
In closing, we are now in another war grifting chapter of American history, where we are using Ukraine as a proxy to absorb the casualties and destruction, as the US Pentagon has admitted the goal of weakening Russia via an attrition war… Jim W. Dean ]

But while the joke landed with some, many were quick to pounce on his verbal slip after nearly two decades of sharp criticism that Bush was unjustified in directing the United States’ 2003 invasion of Iraq, with some lobbing accusations that the 43rd president is a war criminal — the same label some have given Putin after his invasion of Ukraine this year, which has been widely criticized by the international community as illegal and inhumane.
“How many Americans were sent to die by him for a lie? Disgusting,” tweeted conservative media personality Tim Young.
At least 200,000 civilians died as a result of “direct war-related violence” during the U.S. invasion of Iraq, according to the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University, which noted that difficulties in measuring deaths accurately mean the toll was probably much higher.

The Bush idiots cannot get out of their own way. Poppy the pervert, and his immoral spawn are the worst face of Oligarchy in the US. They are not statesmen , they are operatives.
The way the US conducted its war in Iraq was 50 times more brutal than what we are seeing in the Puke war. And please do not forget the time we black sited prisoners and tied them up naked while laughing and taking pictures. perhaps the lighter techniques of torture we used. Cheney signing the plastic milk jug with a grin is all anyone needs to see.
The gullible public still sees no end in sight for returning war powers to congress, instead of one or two Oligarchs. Britain is duplicitous in all of this and we need to trim our 5 eyes down to one.
That sums it up pretty concisely. BTW, where is Jeb Boy these days?
USA i served for many years is biggest bullying terrorist of them all.
Well, out of the mouth of…is this what one calls a Freudian slip? I’m glad those in attendance got a laugh out of it, they apparently weren’t parents or loved ones of those sacrificed on the alter of the Zionist neocons. Too bad Putin didn’t tell the truth as to Syria. It wasn’t entirely that he was going after the terrorists there, so he wouldn’t have to at home. He was going after them before they could thoroughly encircle Russia. That ‘s what the entire war on terror is about, the encirclement of Russia…the same tactic Russia has been using in Syria and Ukraine. What is sad, truly, is that he can’t tell the entire truth, that Israel is the progenitor and instigator of world-wide terrorism…that they want their homeland back and they want to destroy/subjugate Russia. His velvet glove approach to Israel may end, hopefully, if they overstep, but I wouldn’t bet the farm on it. Who fires off anti-aircraft missiles if you’re not going to lock onto a target? It would have been far better to just lock onto them and not waste missiles. But, then again, who knows if that story (out of Israel) was real or BS. Trump was very useful as a complete military idiot, who could be counted on to do whatever stupid move needed. He ‘left’ Somalia…but went whole-hog with KSA/UAE. Then Biden pulled troops from Afghan and sent some troops into Yemen, which BTW, we haven’t heard about since. Funny, Russia even sanctioned Yemen…who have threatened Israel. How does one read that?
No one is mentioning the new one invasion of Somalia from where Trump had taking out US troops which them had nothing to do there and now Biden sent them again
If you were to pay attention to what he was saying instead of admiring his orange toupée, that’s one of the shithole countries he was screaming about at the podium. He wanted to pull all his maga retards and put them in Iran. Fortunately a couple of people around him who didn’t have his bird brain, told him to sit down gave him some crayons to play.
Did you forget all of that already …
Newt, if you were to pay attention to what he really did instead what he said “pour la galerie” you could discover what’s important are the facts not the words… also he would have pull out US troops from Syria, something he ordered several times and was delayed time after time by Pentagon generals and intel community lies…. so, at the end the facts are he didn’t start any new war throughout his administration.
He didn’t start a new war except for killing Soleimani and wanting a big one with Iran which almost happened.
Go read about it. Here I’ll help you since you only worship him:
“Seven Days in January: How Trump Pushed U.S. and Iran to the Brink of War”
Newt, read NYTimes really are you kidding me ?? I think killing Soleimani that was just to show himself as the tough guy of neighbourhood stand front saudis and zios, maybe misjudging that Iran’s response would be limited or not response at all and any situation not enough strong to start a war
Lol. Adrian you’re more in lala land that I thought. To show himself a tough guy ..
Pompeo is hiding because your hero wanted to show himself a tough guy.
Every Iranian general was saying we almost went to war over the douche.
Stop your hasbara.
Every Iranian general was saying …. and what you expect they say ?? that they ran to hide asking Allah incoming nukes not hitting them very close??? I’m not hasbara nothing. I’m just telling you what is my best guess about what Trump had in mind with such move. Pompeo is hiding because he want keep far away January 6th incoming scandal and come back clean in 2024 to run as candidate probably.
Did you take an English language session in the past few hours … hum.
Ohh, indeed, I never taken any session, not in past few hours and not any time before, I’ve learned alone in self-taught way… 🙂
Psalm 64:8 They will be made to stumble, their own tongues turned against them. All who see will shake their heads.
George W. Bush is just one of the worst US presidents, he is also one of the worst human beings. Just because, like John McCain, he spent his life trying to live up to accomplishments of father and grandfather. I don’t know the proper medical psychological term for that, but I prefer pathetic wretch. And, in this case, war criminal.
The term you’re looking for is inbreds. Inbreeding produces Republican retards always at the bottom of the food chain.
Biden will exceed to Bush as the worst US president getting the first place in score far away from second…. 🙂
