US Foreign Policy: Faith-Based Initiative
"I base a lot of my foreign policy decisions on some things that I think are true. One, I believe there's an Almighty. And secondly, I believe one of the great gifts of the almighty is the desire in everybody's soul, regardless of what you look like or where you live, to be free."
-George W. Bush 5/24/06
Now he tells us. Forget Al-Qaeda, WMDs, Saddam Hussein... the primary reason we're in Iraq is purely theological: George W. Bush, religious scholar, believes that the Almighty wants everyone to be free... regardless of what they look like or where they live. Guess that means we'll be opening all our jails soon... and the rulers of Saudi Arabia, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Kuwait, Egypt, Syria, Myanmar and China had better watch their asses, because presumably they're next.
Or at least they would be if our soldiers, having been declared Free, hadn't all gone home.
