Turkeys Let the Truth Slip Out

Jan 5, 2004

How could we forget Bush’s trip to Iraq on Thanksgiving? We were inundated with photos of him carrying a big turkey to serve the soldiers assembled around him.

Now it turns out that the turkey was made of rubber. This should come as no surprise! Everything else he’s said about this war on Iraq has been a fake, too!

. . . . .

Tony Blair imitated Bush and made a surprise visit to the British troops in Iraq on January 4. He said that nations that develop weapons of mass destruction are a “huge liability for the whole security of the world” and “no government that owes its position to the will of the people will spend billions of pounds on chemical and biological and nuclear weapons whilst their people live in poverty.”

He couldn’t have said it better about the U.S. and Britain, countries which control the biggest stock of such weapons.
