In Gaffe, George W. Bush Accurately Denounces ‘Wholly Unjustified and Brutal’ Invasion of Iraq

May 19, 2022 | John Friend

Independent observers of American politics will recognize the blatant hypocrisy that high profile politicians engage in on a daily basis. However, the level of hypocrisy on display during a recent speech by former president George W. Bush may be the most egregious example in recent memory and cannot be ignored or dismissed by even the most poorly informed and ignorant American voter.

The man who launched an illegal war of aggression based on total lies, fake intelligence, and deception and hysteria against Iraq at the behest of the pro-Israel neoconservatives running his administration attempted to criticize and denounce Russian President Vladimir Putin for his invasion of Ukraine. His absurd gaffe ended up demonstrating the utter hypocrisy and fraudulent moral grandstanding U.S. politicians are experts at trafficking in.

“Russian elections are rigged,” Bush stated during his speech at the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University near Dallas, Texas yesterday. “Political opponents are imprisoned or otherwise eliminated from participating in the electoral process.”

Of course, Bush’s condemnation of Russia’s “rigged elections” and its targeting of political opposition could equally be applied to the Zelensky regime in Ukraine, which has systematically targeted political opposition parties, shut down opposition media outlets, arrested political opponents and dissidents, among other crimes against democracy. Pro-Ukrainian militias and Ukraine’s intelligence agencies have also targeted so-called “Russian collaborators,” and allegations of extrajudicial killings, imprisonment, and torture have plagued the Ukrainian armed forces and its allied militias for years. All of these uncomfortable facts are entirely ignored by the Western political and media establishment, who have and continue to pledge unwavering financial, political, and military support for the corrupt Ukrainian regime.

“The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia,” Bush continued, “and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq – I mean, of Ukraine.”

Something Dubya will never admit is the TRUE REASON the U.S. invaded Iraq, and that was Dollar Supremacy. Saddam was selling Iraqi oil for Euros because as he said he "did not want to trade in the currency of the enemy." This action ended with him being hung by the neck.
