I thought I couldn’t get anymore pissed off at Bush, then this:

Second-guessing Franklin D. Roosevelt, President Bush said Saturday the United States played a role in Europe’s painful division after World War II – a decision that helped cause “one of the greatest wrongs of history” when the Soviet Union imposed its harsh rule across Central and Eastern Europe.

Bush singled out the 1945 Yalta agreement signed by Roosevelt in a speech opening a four-day trip focused on Monday’s celebration in Moscow of the 60th anniversary of Nazi Germany’s defeat.

This piece of shit doesn’t even deserve to utter Roosevelt’s name.

“We will not repeat the mistakes of other generations, appeasing or excusing tyranny, and sacrificing freedom in the vain pursuit of stability,” the president said. “We have learned our lesson; no one’s liberty is expendable. In the long run, our security and true stability depend on the freedom of others.”

Bush has no concept of history.  The world was ready for the war to stop, and regardless of what was to happen in the future, the Soviets did beat the shit out of Hitler’s army on the Eastern Front at a loss of 27 million of their citizens.  But the Allied forces were in no position to make any demands at Yalta.  Roosevelt recognized that a deal with the devil to secure global peace was a reasonable compromise.  This is something fratboy silver spoon Bush is completely unable to comprehend.

What Bush fails to recognize is the parallels that he shares with Stalin:

First, Davies would have to concede that Stalin had more legitimate security reasons for his “liberation” than did Bush. Second, although America’s imperialism normally is enforced by periodic interventions, rather than the heavy-handed occupation that the Soviet Union inflicted on Eastern Europe, the Bush administration is building fourteen permanent U.S. military bases in Iraq. And like the Soviet presence in Eastern Europe, it is a safe bet that American soldiers will be occupying those bases fifty years from now.

Anyone who doubts that Iraq is in America’s sphere of influence simply needs to recall that, soon after the invasion, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz issued a memorandum that restricted the bidding on contracts to rebuild Iraq to “companies from the U.S., Iraq, coalition partners and force contributing nations.”

And what does Bush mean by the “vain pursuit of stability?”  If this is not an indicator of the radical nature of Bush the man, nothing else is.  The Iraq war was fully intended to reset the global chess game.  It had nothing to do with bringing peace to the Middle East; quite the opposite.  He fully intended to create an environment of chaos, better to hide the plunder of American treasure and create unstability in world oil markets.  The end result is the lining of his patrons pockets.  Exactly what they wanted.
