The Dubya-M-Ds in G-Dubya-B’s head

Oil be the judge of that

This week the Times is publishing serial extracts from a newly published work of fiction – the ghost-written memoirs of George W. Bush, Decision Points. This little gem caught my eye:

“When Saddam didn’t use WMD on troops, I was relieved. When we didn’t discover the stockpile soon after the fall of Baghdad, I was surprised. When the whole summer passed without finding any, I was alarmed.” [Yeah right – even thought the UN weapons inspections report by Hans Blix hadn’t found any evidence for WMDs prior to the invasion]

“The left trotted out a new mantra: “Bush Lied, People Died”. The charge was illogical. If I wanted to mislead the country into war, why would I pick an allegation that was certain to be disproven?”
It wouldn’t be anything to do with the fact that gaining a plentiful supply of cheap oil was more important than the truth by any chance? Or that Dick Cheney told him to?

“While the world was undoubtedly safer with Saddam gone, [try telling that to the hundreds of thousands who were killed after Saddam had been removed] I had sent American troops into combat based in large part on intelligence that proved false. ” [Somehow the word “intelligence” and George W. Bush don’t make good bedfellows].

“No one was more shocked or angry than I was when we didn’t find the weapons. I had a sickening feeling every time I thought about it. I still do.”

Oil be the judge of that – pull the other one, Georgie.

  1. What’s really hilarious is that a puling, filthy, treasonous Liberal enemy of America has the unmitigated gall to Ethics as a tag in a blog post. LOL

    Get with the American program; you’ll live longer.

    Bush was wrong; he believed evidence that wasn’t from fully reliable sources. That makes sense since he ignored similar evidence earlier (as had Clinton) and 9/11 happened.

    As for oil and the war itself – If we’d just wanted the oil, then going to war in Iraq wasn’t the way to get it and the 13 years of UN-endorsed sanctions had failed to stop Saddam and cost the lives of upwards of 1,000,000 Iraqis in process.

    But believe as you will; you and your sort aren’t really relevant anymore.

  2. I wouldn’t pay any attention to him, CW. Have you seen his blog? – the guy’s a nutter! Never mind WMDs, He’s the type whose bedroom would be full of WMTs – Weapons of Mas Turbation!
