RE: Bush fags it up with Saudi Prince
The truth is that the King of Saudi Arabia is the one who is ill, probably with Alzheimers. The prince cavorting with his boyfriend above, is the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia. Our relationship with that country shows the depths of the hypocrisy of our middle east policies: democracy is supposed to be what we are bringing, but we don't seem to want to bring it to one of the most despotic dictatorships on the planet in Saudia Arabia. Bush says democracy will mitigate terrorism by allowing people to live in societies that are fairer and bring prosperity to the general population instead of a select few, something I agree with, even if I do not agree with his method of murdering people into democracy. Here is what is utterly disgusting: he betrays his own truth. The 911 hijackers were SAUDI ARABIANS. Why is bringing democracy by murder being done in Iraq?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
