President Bush: “Taiwan is Part of China!”

August 20th, 2008 | by Tom Harper |

George W. Bush interrupted his vacation in Crawford for a photo op in Orlando, FL at the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention. He told them: “The breakaway province of Taiwan is part of China! The United States of America will continue to support Mainland China.”

Oh wait — Georgia, not China. Doh! OK, let’s see now…the Chinese had better keep their grubby mitts off their breakaway region of Taiwan, or else! And the United States will help the Georgian government do whatever they need to do — whatever it takes! — to strangle South Ossetia and Abkhazia into submission. Fuck ‘em where they breathe! OK, I get it now.

Pat Buchanan brings up a scary thought. Yes, that Pat Buchanan, the racist xenophobe who wants to turn the clock back to the 1800s. When he’s right, he’s right. A broken clock is still right twice a day.

If Georgia had already been a member of NATO — as the Bush Administration was pushing for — when this civil war started, guess where the United States would be fighting right now, as we speak. Georgia’s NATO membership would have forced us to send American soldiers to Georgia, so they could fight against Russian soldiers.

Oh boy, war with Russia!!! No, that’s not an earthquake you feel. It’s the simultaneous orgasm of every rightwing mouthbreathing chickenhawk in the country.

Pat Buchanan says:

“If the Russia-Georgia war proves nothing else, it is the insanity of giving erratic hotheads in volatile nations the power to drag the United States into war… had George W. Bush prevailed and were Georgia in NATO, U.S. Marines could be fighting Russian troops over whose flag should fly over a province of 70,000 South Ossetians who prefer Russians to Georgians.”

Somebody, somewhere please put the brakes on that psycho in the White House.

    Pat is as consistent as a stopped clock too. He is a paleo-conservative who doesn’t want a U.S. soldier anywhere outside of the United States. He is an isolationist and always has been, just like Republicans traditionally always were. He doesn’t want the U.S. to be part of NATO *or* the United Nations, and of course he be agin’ the U.S. being in Iraq or Afghanistan too. I don’t always agree with Pat, but I gotta respect the fact that he has principles and sticks by them. Maybe sometimes-appalling principles. But principles, nevertheless, which makes him 100% better than the Busheviks, whose only principle is how to loot and pillage the wealth of nations for the benefit of a Party elite.
