Political epitaph of George W. Bush: A President nobody will miss

At the time, eight years ago, I stated that the international media should forget the rumours and give the new President a white paper on which to write. And write on it he and his regime did. And how...

It started with the precision bombings of Afghan wedding parties, which became a wacky “Whoops! Ha!Ha! Sorry!” foreign policy launched soon after Colin Powell was neutered by Rumsfeld. It continued with the illegal invasion of Iraq (let it be said that months before this breach of international law, this column stated that a monumental mistake was about to be made) and it culminated in the insolence and sheer arrogance displayed to Moscow while Washington’s ally, Georgia, was perpetrating acts of slaughter and butchery in Ossetia that mirrored the shocking policy of mass murder carried out by the troops of the Bush regime in Iraq. So why should one show restraint and try to paint a pretty picture of a monster, a murderer and a nasty person?

George W. Bush is a president (small p) nobody will miss. The fact that the latter days of his Presidency were spent making fun of his own stupidity and desperately trying to spin the notion that he tried to do the right thing on his watch is as puerile an attempt at self-justification as Condoleeza Rice’s “good little girl” ploy performing a more than reasonable rendition of Bach before a yawning Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
