Neil mantém em seu site um link com “Vivendo com a Guerra”. Nele a verdade sobre a guerra do Iraque e as besteiras do Bush são escancaradas. Abaixo eu recortei um artigo para dar uma idéia das sandices do presidente americano. Vá até o site para ler todo o artigo e ter acesso aos vídeos e gravações. It’s a must see.

George W. Bush said recently that American troops fighting in Afghanistan are taking part in an “exciting” and “romantic” adventure. photo During a video conference with US military and civilian personnel working and fighting in Afghanistan, Bush said,
“Eu tenho que confessar, eu estou com um pouco de inveja. Se eu fosse um pouco mais jovem e não estivesse empregado aqui, eu acho que seria uma experiência fantástica estar nas linhas de frente auxiliando esta jovem democracia alcançar sucesso. Deve ser excitante para vocês e de alguma forma romântico, sabem como é, enfrentar o perigo”
Such an immature and foolish statement is particularly galling coming from a guy who in 1968 dodged combat duty in Vietnam by using the influence of his father — who was then a Congressman representing Texas’s 7th District — to get into the Texas Air National Guard, which was used by the sons of prominent Texas families as a convenient way to be assigned stateside duty during the Vietnam War. Young George Bush scored the minimal points on a qualifying test, but with the help of Lieutenant Governor Ben Barnes, was given one of two remain flying slots in the Guard Unit, which was known as the “champaign unit.” At the time there was a waiting list of over 100,000 people trying to get into the Air National Guard. But young George W. Bush didn’t think the Vietnam War was “romantic” enough for him. Over 58,000 Americans died in that war, and as many as 5 million Vietnamese were killed in a war that saw more tons of explosives dropped on that tiny country than were dropped by U.S. bombers in all of World War II — in Europe and Asia combined. Another three million Cambodians also lost their lives when the war and resulting chaos spilled over into their country.
