There’s nothing funny about Iraq’s destruction.
As if American political discourse could not plumb the depths of immorality and depravity any further, the original sinner of the 21st century — George W Bush — re-emerged to show that he remains, without a doubt, one the most morally bankrupt US presidents in recent memory.
While speaking at an event on Wednesday, the gaffe-prone former president was busy denouncing Russian President Vladimir Putin for his decision to attack Ukraine in February. However, rather than engage in commentary about Putin, Bush engaged in the mother of all Freudian slips and said that the war was “the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq.”
But this was no mere gaffe — rather, this was an insight into the troubled mind and soul of a liar and war monger who is arguably behind the root reasons behind much of the Middle East’s problems today.
