Bush statements scary

Recently George W. Bush has made statements that are frightening. To the Washington Post he said that there is no need to hold anyone in his administration accountable for what has happened in Iraq because the voters have already spoken.

These are not the words of someone who believes in democracy or rule by law. In a democracy, anyone should be held accountable for their deeds – especially when they lead to the deaths of so many. It is neither funny nor ironic that the Bush administration waited until after the election to call off the futile search for WMD.

Bush’s second statement was that he would not rule out military action against Iran “if it continues to stonewall the international community about the existence of its nuclear weapons program.”

Dejá vù, anybody?
