Quotes of the Morning: The King and W

“I think that's what he [Kim Jong-il] wants. I think he does want people to fear him. My response to him and the response of our partners is to be that, you know, ‘It's very important for you, leader of North Korea, to make rational decisions, because the United States is not alone in making these demands.’
The demand, of course, is to give up his weapons programs in a verifiable fashion. There's a better way for the people of North Korea, by the way. I mean, these people are hungry, they're starving. There are concentration camps there.
And I just hope at some time he gets some sense, because the human condition in North Korea is totally intolerable. I mean, one threat, of course, is a proliferation threat, which we're dealing with through what we call the proliferation security initiative, which is a group of nations that say, ‘We're not going to allow this country to proliferate.’”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, interview with Larry King, July 6, 2006

“Like the harsh way we dealt with Pakistan when we found out that they were selling nuclear secrets.. What? We didn’t do anything to them?”

“Another threat, of course, is something on a rocket, which we're watching very carefully. And the third threat is just the terrible condition of the people living in North Korea. And it grieves me to know that.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, interview with Larry King, July 6, 2006

“Yes.. The third ‘threat’ is that the people of North Korea are suffering. Using that logic we will be invading Ethiopia very soon.. or maybe, dare I say it, the Sudan.”

“The decision to remove Saddam Hussein was the right decision and I'm absolutely convinced it was.

Where I get down is when I, you know, that some grieving mom or wife or dad has lost their loved one and that's the agony of war. And I've met with enough families to know how it's broken their heart to lose a loved one.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, interview with Larry King, July 6, 2006

“Families are strange mutant beasts comprised of multiple people but only a single broken heart.”

“But I made the right decision and we will succeed in Iraq, unless we decide to quit. And success in Iraq will be really important for the world. It's important for there to be a democracy in the heart of the Middle East.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, interview with Larry King, July 6, 2006

“Apparently he has forgotten that Israel exists.”

“Things don't happen quickly when it comes to helping a nation go from a tyranny to a democracy. But the Iraqi people were given a chance to vote and they did overwhelmingly. And now we're working with a new unity government, to help succeed.

And when we succeed, I think they'll look back at this moment in history and say it's the beginning of changing the conditions that caused there to be such resentment that people would be willing to commit suicide, acts of suicide against U.S. citizens.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, interview with Larry King, July 6, 2006

“Yes, that seems likely. They’ll call it the great ‘Beginning of the changing the conditions that caused there to be such resentment that people would be willing to commit acts of suicide (acts of suicide?) against the U.S.’. Hmm.. Let’s break that down a little. The voting was the changing of conditions. The resentment was apparently caused by the fact that things were getting better? And people ‘resented’ that enough that they were willing to commit suicide (or, as Fearless Leader stated, ‘acts of suicide’)? Wow, I’d hate to see how badly they’d have taken it if the invasion had gone poorly.
So let’s finish up with another reality-buster.”

“Larry King: So there is no doubt, if you had it to do over again, knowing the WMDs weren't there, you'd still go in?

George ‘Dubya’ Bush: Yes. This is -- we removed a tyrant, who was a weapon -- he was an enemy of the United States who harbored terrorists and who had the capacity, at the very minimum, to make weapons of mass destruction. And he was a true threat. And yes, I would have done the same thing.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, interview with Larry King, July 6, 2006

“Amazing. Apparently Saddam was, himself, a deadly weapon. Just like Chuck Norris. No wonder we couldn’t find them. Like General Zod in the old Superman movie, Saddam apparently had superhuman powers and could single-handedly pose a threat to the United States. Not only that but he harbored terrorists (despite all evidence showing that he was unaware of terrorists working in Iraq and that he had no working relationship with Al Qaeda) and he had the CAPACITY to make weapons of mass destruction. Of course using that logic every westernized nation on the face of the Earth is a direct threat to the safety and well being of the United States. I mean think about it.. All those Canadians just north of the border. They have the technology. The COULD make weapons of mass destruction. We must invade!
Not a d**n thing this idiot says makes any sense..””
