Dear George W. Bush…When is Enough,
Editor’s Note: For 26 years,
Entertainment News & Views has had the privilege of providing
readers with tools by which to live the Good Life. Certain topics do
not lend themselves well to the objectives set forth by EN&V,
however, there are times when our faithful writers become so
impassioned about a topic that we must provide an outlet for their
words. Considering the currency of this topic, we felt that Ms. Roth
deserved the opportunity to let her voice be heard.
piece you are about to read in no way reflects the political views
or opinions of Entertainment News & Views. These words are from
the perspective of Ms. Roth.
I want to begin by stating
how PROUD I am to be an American! I love this country and that is
why I decided to write this piece, and luckily I can, as we still
have freedom of the press (hopefully this freedom will live on). As
a typical citizen, after holding this in for so many years, I felt I
had to take a stand and write this note to you, George.
ask you, Mr. Bush, when is enough, enough? Six years ago, we were
tragically invaded on Sep. 11 by a REAL evildoer, Osama Bin Laden!
So, then, why oh why, did we invade a country who has NEVER IN ANY
WAY ATTACKED OUR COUNTRY? If Saddam Hussein attacked us, heck I
would absolutely say nuke ‘um, BUT HE DIDN'T! OSAMA DID! When asked
about Osama, you stated you don't really spend too much time
thinking about him. "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" This ridiculous war THAT
YOU HAVE GOTTEN US INTO is all about you, your ego, and YOUR AGENDA!
You, sir, have created a monster that we never had before and
Americans will forever have to carry on our shoulders. You
single-handedly (well, along with your advisors) have created a
scary world of terror for America that we did not have BEFORE YOU,
MR. BUSH! You have made America a terrorist country. We invaded a
country that had done nothing to us, managed to kill 3,000 (WHO
KNOWS HOW ACCURATE THIS NUMBER REALLY IS) of our BRAVE, AMERICAN
SOLDIERS AND WHO KNOWS HOW MANY INJURED AND MAIMED FOR LIFE. WHY??
How can you keeping hiding behind the Sept. 11th tragedy to scare
us, which had nothing to do with Hussein? Okay, great, he was a BAD
guy and now he is dead. However, we are no safer; we are actually in
more danger, Mr. Bush (and are more hated)! I went to Europe this
summer and I was actually afraid to say I am an American, as the
response was far short of a delighted response. I used to go to
Europe and tell everyone who I spoke with that I was an American and
they told me how lucky I am, and boy am I! It made me crazy before
the election when so many Americans bought that lie that we were
safer with you. Well, thank goodness most Americans now see the
light. Your party with your stellar morals has done a Humpy Dumpty
and has had a great fall. So, without your moral hats to rest your
heads in, even the religious have gotten your number. Thank the
BRING OUR BRAVE TROOPS HOME BEFORE WE LOSE MORE OF
THEM!!! (IF YOU DID, I wonder too how many of them will be without
medical insurance like millions of Americans are?) By the way,
during your speech (well, whoever wrote it for you) you mentioned
how you mourn the loss of 3,000 soldiers who served and died in this
war; really, do you? Name just five of them. Okay, then just give me
four names, Mr. Bush, of the men you spend so much time mourning.
If you believe that much in your new strategy, I say send
your precious twin daughters to Iraq to help fight this war. Or,
perhaps maybe you George could roll up your sleeves and go help out
a bit. I think you have too much clutter hiding in those sleeves to
roll them down anyway!
Iraq is a country involved in a
horrible Civil War. YES, MR. BUSH, a Civil War! Remember that. You
might (and I do say might) have heard about that when you were in
school? What if Canada or Italy or even Russia came over to America
during that war and stuck their nose in a war they had no business
being in? Where would we be today? We had the freedom to have a
civil war, unless Iraq invades us, you should give them that right!
You are so worried about weapons of mass destruction being
produced in the future, but is this war going to stop that in any
Mr. Bush, we have lost this war. It is not a winnable
war as it is a civil war and not for us to win. No one even asked us
for our help. If you look up "DENIAL" in the dictionary, YOU will be
there in capital letters. Your despicable ego, selfishness,
inability to say ‘I blew it,’ is keeping us in a place where we are
actually doing more damage than good. You are so concerned with your
presidential legacy to give it up! First you said it was a war about
weapons of mass destruction. OOPS! We should have left then. You
then felt you needed to save face and made it a war on Freedom Iraq.
OOPS, he did it again. Let me ask you Mr. Bush, why after hundreds
of years of this country enduring horrors did you finally give a
crap about the people of Iraq? Oh, and Mr. George, if you haven't
yet heard, the people of Sudan are going through a holocaust and are
having a hell of a time as are other countries. If you care to help
out with that, THAT WOULD BE A GOOD THING! If you truly do care
about the people of Iraq, then why did you kill sooooo many of them
in this war? You have left innocent women, children, and men either
dead or maimed for life. GIVE MYSELF AND THE WORLD A BREAK, GEORGE,
AND GO MILK SOME COWS OR PUMP SOME OIL. MAYBE HAVE ANOTHER DRINK.
The fact that you represent this wonderful country to the
world is an embarrassment. I hope the world will live through the
rest of your reign.
God Bless America and God Bless our
