George W. Admits It!

May 23, 2022

During a speech in Dallas last week, George W. Bush denounced Russia’s lack of democracy, saying, “The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia, and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion—of Iraq. … er, Ukraine.”

Just goes to show, even an idiot like George W. can see the parallel.

Commentators jumped all over it: He admitted it! The invasion of Iraq was wholly unjustified and brutal! And it only took 17 years!

But George was right: in the U.S., we have a “democracy”, which meant that the criminal invasion of Iraq could not happen just because of one man. It took all the politicians of both capitalist parties to commit that crime!
