Not surprisingly, practically the first statement in this speech is September 11th, 2001. Despite this outrage against humanity, there is no mention of the thousands of innocent civilians in other countries murdered by the armed forces of which George Bush is Commander-in-Chief, no mention of the targeting of civilian infra-structures with his military hardware, no mention of the widespread practice of torture, the concentration camps, the disrespect for international law.
Instead, what we get from George Bush is absurd, puerile statements such as: "At the start of 2006, more than half the people of our world live in democratic nations. And we do not forget the other half - in places like Syria, Burma, Zimbabwe, North Korea and Iran..."
For the information of Mr. Bush "places like" Iran do not set up concentration camps in foreign lands, "places like" North Korea do not invade sovereign nations outside the auspices of international law, "places like" Syria do not use weapons of mass destruction against civilians, "places like" Zimbabwe do not lie at the UNO and "places like" Burma (Myanmar Republic for those who know what they're talking about) do not invade their neighbours, wire up people's testicles with electrodes, sodomise prisoners and set dogs on them.
If this is spreading freedom and democracy to protect the good people of the United States who voted for such practices, then the Bush regime has created a chasm between its people and the rest of the world, and let us describe this policy accurately, for what it is: it is a unilateral policy of aggression which purports to set the United States of America above the rest of the international community in a position where Washington does what it likes, when it likes and as it likes, syphoning off or controlling the resources of the international community for its own benefit.
