Oh, you mean like when they asked for an arrest warrant for Osama Bin Laden for killing hundreds of thousands of people? Oh, somehow I missed that...
|Quoting Springbok747 (Reply 10):|
BTW..these morons calling for his arrest should also make sure Mugabe, Castro, Chavez, I-want-a-Jihad and all the other nutjobs "face justice" as well. Like that will ever happen
As many people have pointed out, they don't let those people off the hook. They are quite even-handed and pretty consistent in their condemnations.
They are not morons. Just the opposite.
|Quoting tu204 (Reply 24):|
GWB's crimes are far worse than Milosevich's and coming close to that of the Nazis that hung for their deeds.
You know, I want GWB held responsible for his actions, but that is an utterly and completely ridiculous statement. Possibly in the top 10 I've seen on A.net...
|Quoting Flighty (Reply 13):|
Therefore we incinerated 100,000s of people in Iraq.
That's also a ridiculous statement. The Bush administration is indirectly responsible for many of those deaths, because we destabilized the region and stoked the sectarian violence. But we didn't "incinerate" 100,000s of people...
|Quoting JakeOrion (Reply 31):|
Oh, and we might as well include Obama in that list, since, hey, he's still in Iraq and Afghanistan. Oh, he also started Libya too.
Do you not see a difference between starting a war on false pretenses (and against international law), and being stuck in a war that other people started? And as for Libya, while it was probably a big mistake, it was an intervention in an already existent conflict.
|Quoting PSA53 (Reply 34):|
What he underestimated was the religious divisions that would start knocking each other off in a civil war and what tore the nation apart.For that,I don't totally blame Bush
How so? Anyone with two brain cells, or even one working one, who studied the region, explained that exactly that would happen if we invaded Iraq. That the Bush administration instead ignored all historians and experts on the region ("intellectual elitists" in their eyes?), and strong-armed all the intelligence agencies in order to follow the delusional "strategies" of a bunch of immoral neo-con nutters is absolutely their fault. Absolutely.
Now, personally, I think Cheney and Rumsfeld are far worse than GWB himself. But the buck did stop at his desk.
