Conflicts of Interest: George W. Bush Finally Says Something True About Iraq

On COI #278, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman cover former President George W. Bush’s viral confession- by-gaffe to war crimes in Iraq, President Joe Biden’s resistance to Kiev’s demands for long range rocket launchers, U.S./Israeli war drills aimed at Tehran, and the latest news on the Iran nuclear deal.

Kyle and Connor watch and discuss Bush’s Freudian slip rapidly making the rounds where he is giving a speech denouncing an illegal, brutal, unprovoked war in Iraq when he meant to say Ukraine. Bush was trying to paint Russian President Vladimir Putin as the ultimate mass murderer, Hitler du jour, but subconsciously realized he could just as easily be reading his own criminal charges. Bush writes this off as him just losing it in his old age. However, it is a blatant example of the fetish for projection fashionable in Washington these days, particularly among those like Bush himself who is forever covered in the blood of a million dead Iraqis.

Kyle breaks down Biden’s apparent reluctance to send Ukraine the long range rocket launchers they have requested, namely the M270 Multiple Launch Rocket Systems. These weapons would enable Kiev to launch strikes deeper beyond Russia’s borders, attacks on Russia have become an increasingly more common occurrence and threaten to uncontrollably escalate and expand the conflict.

Connor talks about a series of ongoing Israeli military exercises called Chariots of Fire. The exercises largely eye an attack on Iran and also include preparation for contingencies of a wider regional war with the Resistance Axis. U.S. Air Force refueling aircraft will soon be joining Israeli fighter jets over the Mediterranean Sea to simulate a wide scale assault on Iran. The simulation will practice how to enter Iranian territory and conduct repeated airstrikes. This comes as Israel just recently bombed Syria, killing as many as five people. Defense Minister Benny Gantz claimed they were targeting advanced Iranian military assets. This latest strike is also notable because it is the first time the Russians fired back at Israeli warplanes using the S-300 air defense systems they have provided Damascus. The new development will likely change the Israeli strategy in Syria, given that, for many years, they have taken for granted that they can bomb the country on a weekly basis virtually without consequences.

Connor continues the Iran news by detailing a series of talks with the European Union’s nuclear negotiator in Tehran. The EU has reportedly made enough progress, breaking the two months long deadlock, and relaunched indirect talks between the U.S. and Iran. Though no date for new Vienna talks has been set yet, Josep Borrell, the EU Foreign Policy Chief, says a deal is now within reach. The Iranians and the Americans have put the onus on each other to do what needs to be done politically to move things forward. Though Tehran says they now await U.S. responses to new proposals they put forward presumably during last week’s talks with Mora.

  1. I really enjoyed that Fredudian slip by the warmonger in chief. The sad thing is that he just glossed over it like a joke and the audience laughed over a warcrime confession. Millions dead in Iraq because of the war? Just a joke.

  2. George Warmonger Bush now admits he was the warmonger in chief during the Iraq War but is still proud of himself and wishes he got the Nobel Peace Prize like Ehud Barack Obama did. Bush said God told him to wage war in Iraq. Laura Bush made a speech defending her husband and said he went to war with Iraq because he had to in order to keep us safe and not because he just wanted to.
    Tony Blair Witch Project admits the US & UK caused ISIS to form but is still proud of causing that war. The Bush’s and Blairs’ lies travelled faster than the speed of light.

  3. The US should be retroactively punished like Russia is presently being punished. This disgusting little turd of a human being just publicly admitted to being a war criminal. He even doubled down by doing it again after he realized he did it the first time. And he laughed. And the audience laughed. Millions died and the man is doing stand-up comedy about it.

    1. Amerikkka produces lots of war criminals in the US and abroad . Demokkkrats and well as Republikkkans produce them and meddle in other countries affairs to put them in charge there.
