With up to 400,000 dead in Asia, why keep killing people in Iraq?
With the dead of Asia spread out before us like some nightmare Van Helsing movie come to life, it seems a bit presumptuous to me for George Bush to continue to play God and go on killing and killing and killing in Iraq.
Would it finally come into perspective for Americans to know that Bush is spending the same amount of money in aid for the millions of tsunami victims in Asia as he spends in just FOUR HOURS on killing people in Iraq?
Thousands of Americans were killed and wounded in Thailand. Thousands of Americans were killed and wounded in Iraq. One was a natural disaster. The other is a stupid, senseless waste.
Bush plans to spend more money on his inauguration party than he will spend on aid to the worst natural disaster in history.
Bush spends more money in ONE HOUR in Iraq than he spends on relief to the terrible AIDS epidemic in Africa. 2,000 people a WEEK die of AIDS in Zimbabwe alone. They have a 45-minute rule in Zimbabwe -- funerals are not allowed to run over 45 minutes. There just isn't time. Corpses are buried in stacks.
Bush is spending more money on killing people in Iraq in a month -- or is it a week? -- than he spends on health care in America in a year.
And the dead just keep on piling up.
Isn't there enough death in the world already? Are we going to continue to let George Bush play God -- and go on killing and killing and killing in Iraq?
