Bush Regrets Seeming 'Anxious for War'

LONDON, UK - In an exclusive interview with the London Times, President George W. Bush for the first time expressed regrets over his rhetoric in the lead-up to the Iraq war. In a rare moment of public self-reflection, Bush admitted that his aggressive public stance prior to the invasion may have “indicated to people that I was, you know, not a man of peace”.

No! Mr. President, that is ridiculous. Now, invading and occupying a sovereign nation that had never attacked, and did not pose a threat to the United States or her allies, THAT might have indicated to people that you weren't a man of peace.

Bush went on to say that phrases like “bring them on” and “dead or alive" may have made him seem like a “guy really anxious for war”.

Come on Mr. B, if anything made you seem like a guy anxious for war, it was justifying the war by claiming that Saddam was not cooperating with UN weapons inspectors and then deciding to invade, ignoring repeated requests for more time by the ACTUAL U.N. WEAPONS INSPECTORS.

Dubya also noted how painful it was for him “to put youngsters in harm’s way”.

It's obvious why you would feel the need to point that out there, Georgie-boy, seeing as how it's so easy to get the impression that you couldn't give a rat's ass. It's the little things. Remember the time you used the threat of "Weapons of Mass Destruction" and, yes even "a mushroom cloud over an American city" as the centerpiece of the steaming pile of half-truths, fabrications and general bullshit used to sell the war? And do you remember how a year or so after the invasion and after losing hundreds of troops it was exposed that there had NEVER BEEN ANY WMDs IN THE FIRST PLACE?? Remember how funny you found that? I mean, you must have found it funny, because at Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner you showed slides of you looking under furniture in the White House joking "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere ... Nope, no weapons over there ... maybe under here?" LAUGHING at the outright false pretenses under which you took us into a war that to date has killed over FOUR THOUSAND U.S. and coalition troops.

It's the little things like that that make it easy to think that "putting youngsters in harm's way" doesn't weigh to heavily on the evil black void where your soul ought to be.

And after all that, all you regret is your choice of words?

“I think that in retrospect I could have used a different tone, a different rhetoric,” you said.

It's not your tone, Mr. President, it's your lies, your arrogance; it's your policies that have needlessly wasted massive amounts blood and treasure and most of all the way you seem to just not give a shit. That, Mr. President, THAT is what indicates to us that you are "you know, not a man of peace."
