Let us hope that the Belgium King will follow up and declare George Bush the war criminal he is. Mr. Bush has murdered over 150,000 Moslems and crippled over 200,000 Moslems in the past three years, has gutted Iraq for the benefit of his friends in the oil business, and has no intention of stopping. On Bush's next trip to Europe, it would be appropriate upon his arrival to slap him in irons and haul him off to court. Mr. Bush's poodle dog Blair deserves no less. Only by jailing Bush will this mid-east nightmare come to an end.

Furthermore, on Feb 3, 2005, CNN reported that when it comes to shooting Moslems in Iraq, Lt. Gen. James Mattis, one of Bush's top storm troopers said in a panel discussion in San Diego, California –

“Actually it's quite fun to fight, you know. It's a hell of a hoot,” prompting laughter from U.S. Military members in the audience. “I'll be right up there with you. I like brawling.

So, it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them.

I think that the General's enjoyment of killing fairly well describes Bush's war policies based on his Christian oil “crusade” into the Middle East. As your readers will recall, Bush described his wars in the Middle East as “a crusade” and his delight in spreading his religion to that region by force so that the oil can safely be stolen. There can be no doubt that Bush is one of the most dangerous leaders to come along in the last 100 years.

Can anyone blame the Iraqi resistance for deploying suicide bombers? What other choice does Bush leave them when they are faced with an enemy that enjoys killing?
