An open letter to George Walker Bush...

George Walker Bush in his own words...and me in mine.

"I'm the decision-maker; if somebody's trying to harm our troops, or stop us from achieving our goal, or killing innocent citizens in Iraq, we will stop them,"

Let's break that one down, shall we?

I'm the decision-maker

Uhh, no, you're not. Congress, not the President, has final say on ALL matters relating to military activity.

if somebody's trying to harm our troops

I'm with you so far...

or stop us from achieving our goal

What? WHAT?

Stop you from achieving your goal?

WHAT goal, exactly?

There never WERE any WMD in Iraq. Saddam Hussein did NOT purchase yellow cake uranium from Africa. There was never a link between Iraq and Osama Bin Laden's Reagen-led Republican government-sponsored Afghan hit-squad-turned-terrorists, Al Queda. But back then when they were your daddy's friends they were called the Mujahadeen. There never was any attempt to kill your father, nor did you did not liberate Iraq from a dictator, the men and women who have died, the men and women whose BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS that YOU sent into Iraq, without UN sanction, without the approval of a majority of the world's population and without the will of the American people OR the RULE OF LAW, were not greeted as liberators and showered with rose petals, but were instead seen as an occupying force by a foreign agressor and butchered by roadside bombs.

They are not your lives to deal out, Mister President.

You have no right to send them to their deaths based on a vulgar LIE.

There is no mandate, on Earth or in Heaven, by ANY rule of law, that allows you or the Office you are currently tarnishing, to barter away human lives based on your own selfish, narrow-minded and zealous ambitions. You are either an ignorant, incompetant fool, or a clever, parasitic monster, Mister President. Which is it, and which will History truly remember you as?

or killing innocent citizens in Iraq, we will stop them,

I am sickened, SICKENED, sir, that you prioritize keeping safe the lives of those you swore you were liberating so lowly on your list. More Iraqi children, women and men have died, because of YOUR lies, in Iraq, these last three hellish years, than died during the last two decades of Saddam Hussein's rule. And the last time the Hussein-led Baath ruling party exterminated their own Kurdish civilians, it was with the tacit approval of the Reagen-led Republican ruling party, using BANNED CHEMICAL WEAPONS they BOUGHT from the Reagen-led Republicans, for use on the Soviet-backed Iranian people, during the Iran-Iraq war. Come on; we know that gassing the Kurds was one of Hussein's conditions for buying the gas. Christ, Dick Cheney's best friend in the oil money theivery business, Donnie Rumsfeld, shook hands with Saddam himself, to seal the deal.

You've never given a rat's ass about Iraqi men, women, and children. They're just another shade of brown to your eyes, aren't they? Oh, yes, of course you and your Daddy both are fond of your "token negroes", Colin Powell and Condi Rice.

Look after your own kind, right Mister President? There's a lot more shades of brown than their are shades of gray. But I guess you only see everything in terms of black and white, don't you? Was that the lesson learned on Poppa's knee? Or was it Momma, who in her wisdom thinks the Browns are better off living in squalor in the Astrodome (By the way, how big's the stake in that landmark?) than they were living in pre-Katrina New Orleans? Or was that a "joke malfunction"?

Speaking of dear old dad, isn't it funny how your pappy served in World War Two and your Grandpappy made money betraying his country and the world by selling goods to Nazi Germany's war effort; funnier still that you weasled your way out of serving in Viet you and the old man must laugh about that. My father the hero, my son the zero. Admit it, Georgie-boy, you ARE Daddy's Biggest Disappointment, aren't you?

Where did you learn to hate, mister President? And, more importantly, when did you learn not to give a damn?

You have brought shame and disgrace to the Office of the President of the United States, Mister President. "I am the Decider" indeed; such hubris.
