An Antidote to Bush's Increasingly Deranged Pronouncements
Posted by Fredsvenn den mai 23, 2008
INTERVIEWER: If we were to pull out of Iraq next year, what’s the worst that could happen, what’s the doomsday scenario?
GEORGE BUSH: «Doomsday scenario of course is that extremists throughout the Middle East would be emboldened… The biggest issue we face is, it’s bigger than Iraq, it’s this ideological struggle against cold-blooded killers who will kill people to achieve their political objectives.»
An antidote to Bush’s increasingly deranged pronouncements is this wonderful tirade by Keith Olbermann, the presenter of MSNBC’s Countdown programme.
Will they never learn? War criminals are not wanted here. George Bush will visit Britain Between June 9 and 16. The last time he was here, in November 2003, it provoked one of the biggest mid-week demonstrations in British history, with up to 300,000 on London’s streets. Since then his war of terror has led to the loss of over a million lives and spread from Iraq and Afghanistan to Pakistan, Somalia and Kenya, with ever intensifying threats suggesting Iran is next.
When Condoleezza Rice visited in March 2006, it turned into a public relations disaster, with large demonstrations in Liverpool, Blackburn and everywhere else she went. Only last week the fanatical warmonger John Bolton, formerly Bush’s ambassador to the United Nations and vociferous advocate of an immediate attack on Iran, cancelled a planned visit to Bristol for fear of the anti-war demonstration that was planned to meet him.
We’re sure that everyone who has opposed George Bush’s war policies and the slavish support he has received from the British government will want to make their voice heard when this warmonger-in-chief visits the UK. Stop the War will of course aim to organise the largest possible protest against George Bush’s visit. More details to follow shortly.
