Europe is in the midst of disaster, only, they do not realize.
Bush after 9/11... nevermind attacking a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 with regards to Iraq but how about Osama bin Laden?
Bush on 09/17/2001... just 6 days after the 9/11 attacks:
The President: I want him held --I want justice. There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, ''Wanted: Dead or Alive."
The reporter tried to get Mr. Bush to elaborate – as recorded by the official White House transcript:
Q: Are you saying you want him dead or alive, sir? Can I interpret …
The President: I just remember -- all I'm doing is remembering -- when I was a kid, I remember that they used to put out there in the Old West, a wanted poster. It said, ''Wanted: Dead or Alive.'' All I want and America wants him brought to justice. That's what we want.
Bush on 03/13/2002
Deep in my heart I know the man is on the run, if he's alive at all. Who knows if he's hiding in some cave or not; we haven't heard from him in a long time. And the idea of focusing on one person is -- really indicates to me people don't understand the scope of the mission.
Terror is bigger than one person. And he's just -- he's a person who's now been marginalized. His network, his host government has been destroyed. He's the ultimate parasite who found weakness, exploited it, and met his match. He is -- as I mentioned in my speech, I do mention the fact that this is a fellow who is willing to commit youngsters to their death and he, himself, tries to hide -- if, in fact, he's hiding at all.
So I don't know where he is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him, Kelly, to be honest with you.
It took your hero Bush a whole 6 months to quit and hoist up the don't-give-a-**** surrender-monkey flag with regards to finding bin Laden "dead or alive."
As far as Obama's foreign policy... well, aside from actually catching the criminal Bush didn't give a damn about any more, there is also all the other facts you could read about:
Obama’s 262 Drone Strikes in Pakistan
Since Obama took office, media outlets have reported more than 300 drone strikes in Pakistan targeting al-Qaeda or the Taliban, outnumbering the Bush administration’s drone strikes five to one.
You can reminisce and fantasize with hearts in your eyes about the grandness of the Bush foreign policy all you want but when you do, you seem to be living in the land of lies that had you buy into all sorts of foreign policy hubris and bluster with no actual foreign policy content.
Americans are once again blaming themselves, investigating each other, promising never to do it again, and so on.
For the world's only Superpower to behave in this sniveling fashion against a bunch of third world religious fanatics is not a good thing for anyone.
