President Bush: Natural Born Killers Don't Need to Explain
Here's the question I would have asked the President at the Valentine's Day press conference: Sir, what are you doing? Why are you even bothering to build a case against Iran? You don't need that. You're President Bush - the guy who gave us the Preemptive Strike, right? It's even called the Bush Doctrine after you.
It clearly states that you can attack anyone anytime. It doesn't have to be a defensive response like thousands of years of civilization have determined it should be. You're the Decider and if you want to kill, you can do it. This is your legacy. The Bush Doctrine will go into the history books as your gift to America.
Sure, it was cute having the press conference on Valentine's Day so your little gang of puppy-love supporters could feel all misty about you. And I suppose we should be flattered that you'd try and explain why we'd attack. But you don't have to do that. You're bigger than that, remember? You're above the law.
Besides, when you and your wretched little buddy Dick Cheney cooked up an explanation for Iraq, it all fell apart on you. So why even bother this time? Do you realize how ridiculous you sound accusing another country of meddling in Iraq? We're meddling in Iraq. The situation we started in Iraq has killed something like 600 thousand of their people. That's meddling, isn't it?
You mention that you're just trying to protect the troops, but they're only in danger because you put them in danger. You were the one who got the troops killed by sending them to an unnecessary war after lying about the connection to 9/11.
So what are you doing with this silly lame attempt to justify a preemptive strike on another country? It's time you could better spend riding your bicycle. Here's how that press conference should have gone:
"Good afternoon. I am George Bush, the Decider, and I have decided to attack another country. The Bush Doctrine - me - gives me, I, the right to kill whenever I or me wants. It's called a preemptive strike, also known as the Law of the Jungle. This time the attack will be against Iran, and I'm not going to stand up here and explain why. I don't need a reason why. We had to spend a lot of time pretending there was a reason for Iraq, and that was time I could have better served the American People. So I won't be taking any questions about the upcoming attack on Iran. Thank you, and God Bless America."
Mr. President, you're clearly a sociopath - someone who is not burdened by the incredible harm you unleash. In that sense, you're a Natural Born Killer, and Natural Born Killers don't need to explain.
