Is this for real? Has BuzzFeed completely lost their mind and soul?
This man has the blood of the soldiers, sailors and marines killed in Iraq caked all over his hands. Unfortunately for him, no amount of oil will wash their blood off. This isn’t even counting the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians wiped off the face of the earth, because of his decisions and lies. While people say, “the troops were volunteers, they knew the risks”, they at least should have had the respect from their Commander in Chief to not get sent into harm’s way on a lie. Or for the business interests of certain corporations.
Plus, they weren’t even supplied with the right equipment, were left woefully unprepared, lacking basic protective and essential equipment. George W. Bush has never truly thanked a soldier in his life. I hope that when he shakes their hand for some staged photo for some pro-Bush media, such as BuzzFeed, he looks deep in to their eyes, and sees true courage, something which deep down he knows is not reflected in him. When the call came for him, he didn’t answer it, yet when he used a national tragedy as an oppportunistic call to arms for his own gain, they answered, without hesitation. The shame of his actions as Commander in Chief should haunt him for the rest of his days.
