Forget about drawing parallels with Nazi Germany. As Newsweek reports, George W. Bush is now living in a parallel universe.
“The more progress we make on the ground, the more free the Iraqis become, the more electricity is available, the more jobs are available, the more kids that are going to school, the more desperate these killers become,” El Busho said on Monday, “because they can’t stand the thought of a free society.”
Remember why those Al-Quaeda terrorists hit the World Trade Centre? It wasn't because they grew up in a repressed Saudi environment where the USA was aiding and abetting their tyrannical leaders for the sake of safe access to oil. It was because they "can't stand freedom".
Bush says the violence in Iraq is "leveling.” That implies that the current, escalated level of violence is going to be maintained for some time.
“What the terrorists would like is for people to focus only on the conditions which create fear, and that is the death and the toll being taken.”
In other words, anyone who criticizes the US adventure in Iraq - or even describes the violence, misery and carnage - is assisting the terrorists.
When asked how he will defend his policies at the next election, Bush replied:
“The world is more peaceful and free under my leadership.”
If US voters buy that line, they can all go live with Bush in his parallel universe. Just get him the hell out of MY universe.
