05-03-2006 15:56

Making a television appearance on the Parkinson Show on ITV, a British satellite channel, Blair described his decision on the Iraqi war as the most important one since he came to power eight years ago, while referring to his Christian values as quite influential in his past decisions on the Iraqi issue.

Bush is not very good at anything, with that fact the world is fully acquainted, however, even the lowliest morons are usually good liars but recent video evidence has proven that Bush is not even skilled in the lowly art of lying. All doubts regarding Bush’s prior knowledge of the magnitude and destructive impact expected of Katrina have been dispelled by the release of video evidence clearly portraying Bush in full knowledge of the then pending emergency. We leave the pathological problem of Bush and the lying neo-cons in the incapable hands of the American people; the Bush regime is internationally known as the most deceitful and tawdry in American history. Good luck doodles, China and Russia could not hope for better!
