Children of Iraq

What a gift of democracy George W. Bush gave to the people of Iraq. Close to a million or more women, men, and children slaughtered and the whole country is in ruins. Millions others are refugees in neighbouring countries and millions others are homeless or without proper food and sanitary conditions. Are these the attributes of democracy? What had Iraq done to the U.S. They were definitely not involved in 9/11. There were no weapons of mass destruction. Millions of people around the world think that Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld committed crimes against humanity; their thinking, that these are war crimes, is justified.

When I recently saw a picture of Frank McKenna, former Premier of New Brunswick and former Canadian Ambassador to the U.S., with George W. Bush it removed any iota of doubt that McKenna is not a real liberal. He is an opportunist and that is all. McKenna apparently had invited Bush to Atlantic Canada for some meet and greet bigwig party. It is apparent that McKenna is bent upon promoting himself and making money at any cost. It is good that he did not go into federal politics. We have too many opportunists in Ottawa already.
