The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Bush Takes "Blame"

Worthless Watch

Today, Bush took the blame for the "bad intelligence" that led us into the Iraq war. Then he reversed track, stating that "My decision to remove Saddam Hussein was the right decision" because Saddam was a threat. Bush continued this non-explanation with the comment, "We are in Iraq today because our goal has always been more than the removal of a brutal dictator."

So, to sum up:

1) The intelligence was bad (very bad).
2) Saddam didn't have weapons of mass destruction, so he wasn't a threat.
3) But Saddam was a threat, so we made the right decision.
4) Our goal was more than the removal of a brutal dictator.
5) It is Bush's fault.

Wow. With stunning logic like that, it's quite clear how we came to be in this mess.

Bush's "taking the blame" for Iraq is just as symbolic and just as worthless as when Bush took the blame for the failure of the federal government to help the victims of Katrina.

Oooooh. What a leader!

With respect to Katrina, he took the blame for the deaths of a large number of people who the federal government abandoned. He took the blame for the insanely poor response of the federal government to help those in need.

For Iraq, he takes the blame for invading a country that wasn't a threat, the killing of 30,000 Iraqis -- a number to which I'm sure the rest of the Whitehouse and the Republicans never wanted Bush to admit -- and the massive failure to reconstruct/govern Iraq after the Mission Was Accomplished. He then praises Ronald Dumsfeld as doin' "a heck of a job" (sound familiar?).

And then, THEN, instead of resigning -- as most people would do after causing the deaths of 30,000+ of the people we are supposed to be "liberating", after the deaths of almost 2,200 Americans, and creating an unjust war that has cost over $300,000,000,000.00 to date, with no end in sight -- Bush goes on to paint a rosy picture of the civil war in Iraq.

Nice one, Mr. Bush. Glad you are our president! With presidents like you, who needs enemies?
