Bush needs to shut up about appeasement

Especially when he talks about appeasement of the Nazi's before World War II. When Hitler's tanks rolled into Austria and Poland, they were rolling on steel sold to them by the Bush family.

An open letter to George W. Bush

But the greatest act of appeasement by an American President is possibly Bush's withdrawal of American troops from bases in Saudi Arabi at the demand of Osama Bin Laden, who gave those bases as the prime justification for his attack on America on 9-11-2001.

From a story written in 2004:

It now appears that appeasing Bin Laden was a major part of the neo-con sales
pitch to the White House. Congressman Christopher Shays, appearing with David
Kay on the Larry King Show (2/11/2004), made a startling revelation about the
war party’s marketing strategy. In an attempt to deflect a question over the
non-existent WMDs, Shays gave away part of the neo-con arguments presented to
key decision-makers. “We knew we needed to get out of Saudi Arabia, that was one
of the contentions of Osama bin Laden."

The full piece is worth reading but it's long and contains a bit of diatribe. The facts are not in dispute, however.

  1. Bush and his PNAC cohorts have "appeased" Israel to the point of 4000 + Americans killed, tens of thousands wounded, and hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis dead, maimed and scattered never to reclaim thier property and loved ones again.

    Bush has "appeased" the thoroughly undemocratic Saudi Royal Terrorist Family, like the sniveling coward that he is, by allowing them to gouge us for oil.

    Bush has "appeased" every back-assward, hate filled, two digit IQ buckethead that the Republican party has to offer by polarizing our nation and the world.

    McCockroach falls to his knees and "appeases" Bush's political penis every chance he gets. That sorry Fascist-fellating maggot.

    When the main players in this global disaster are lusting for war and carnage, anything "peace" becomes "appeasement" to them because it's the last thing they want.

    Who did Ronald Reagan "appease" when he cut and ran in Lebanon?

    You guessed it, Hezbollah. Iran's army at large.
