George W. Bush's legacy of death continues to damage America and the Middle East
Former U.S. President George W. Bush made claims of "Weapons of Mass Destruction" in Iraq as a preface for war. However, when Bush illegally entered Iraq, under the premise of removing its former leader Saddam Hussein, he did their nation and America a great disservice, as the true purpose of the war was to unlawfully secure their oil reserves. In the process, over a million Iraqis died and several thousand U.S. soldiers as well.
Bush's Vice President, Dick Cheney, pushed for the war to secure oil for his longtime company Halliburton, among others, in what was assumed to be a cash cow, turned into a nightmare
The unnecessary bloodshed enraged the Middle East and Muslims in other nations, as they watch men, women, children and babies being bombed and killed by Bush. It created an intense hatred for America in Muslim communities and has led to terrorist attacks greatly multiplying in the West. Now the world is faced with the brutal ISIS terrorist group, hell bent on killing Westerners, as in their eyes it avenges their fellow Muslims who were killed in military action by Bush. Two wrongs don't make a right. The needless bloodshed on both sides needs to stop. A truce needs to be reached. All life is precious, American, Middle Eastern and people all over the world.
