Another reason to vote for Obama

The video is from the Canadian Broadcasting Company's documentary, The Bush Years.

Steven D. at the Booman Tribune writes how:

"In ancient Rome, and at other times in human history, rulers displayed the heads of their enemies after they had been executed. It is a particularly barbaric practice, and one much opposed by those on the right who recite endlessly that Muslims are barbarians because a few extremists cut off the heads of captured Westerners. Yet, here was the President of the United States of America, supposed the most advanced and moral society in the world, ordering the CIA to bring him the heads of our enemies on ice so he couild gloat over them like some demented feudal baron. ..."

If you have a strong stomach, you can real Steven's entire post here.

Fortunately, few people believe what Bush says anymore, assuming he finishes a sentence in English understandable by all.
He will fade away but his influence might last a very long time. He has managed to lock in some of his mistakes and they cannot be changed easily. I think our huge embassy will last a long time in Iraq. It will probably eventually sit partially used for a long time. We still do no know what kind of state Iraq will eventually become. Large numbers on both sides have been killed and others are refugees all over the Middle East. The professional classes were killed or left Iraq, over many years and might never return. We can hope they can become an acceptable democratic state, but so far, they have not progressed enough to demonstrate longevity. The Arab Muslim world has no history of true democracy. Their history and traditions are not like ours. We should not be surprised when they react differently then we do, but we are.
