Bush Negates 2nd Reason for Iraq War in U.N. Speech

After finding no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Bush shifted his reason for invading to free the people of a horrific oppressor, Saddam Hussein. In his plea to the United Nations to do nothing to advance peace in the region until after Israel bombs Iran’s nuclear processing facilities, President Bush said:

Freedom, by its nature, cannot be imposed -- it must be chosen.

So why did we invade Iraq again? And why do we continue to war in the pursuit of peace? How did Israel’s imposition of Lebanon aid freedom, since it cannot be forced? Why does the U.S. continue to impose the Quartet as the necessary body to lead peace in the region when the Arab League and U.N. desire a broader peace than the now dead Roadmap slated for completion in 2005?

While Bush encouraged the U.N. to return to its high ideals with its hands cuffed behind its back, the President shat on American jurisprudence with his continued lobbying for use of hearsay, coerced testimony and restricted access to evidence. Someone uncuff the United Nations and hose down U.S. justice. Hide them away the next time the Bushman comes around.
