Yesterday, President Bush defended his decision not to send U.S. troops into the Darfur genocide, saying he learned lessons from the genocide in Rwanda. Ignorant of the comparison to Iraq, Bush said foreign troops would only be divisive and “unbelievably counterproductive”:
BUSH: A clear lesson I learned in the museum was that outside forces that tend to divide people up inside their country are unbelievably counterproductive. In other words, people came from other countries — I guess you’d call them colonialists — and they pitted one group of people against another.
Atrios noted the irony, adding, “The museum was the Rwandan genocide museum.”
What. A. Fucking. Idiot. I don't care that he shits in his own mess gear every time he opens his mouth, but I do care that he shits in mine as an American.
Note to people around the world: He embarrasses the crap out of us, and we don't like him either.
The Chimp's comments about 'colonial intervention' only apply to countries without oil, of course. Or to countries that have already sold their oil to large nations we don't want to get in a row with. Yet.
