Bush wins

The United States has re-elected George W. Bush as President. One of the major reasons for voting for him will have been that they think he is better suited to winning the ‘war on terror’. Unfortunately, by invading Iraq he has done more to encourage recruits to al-Qaeda et al than they could ever do by themselves.

Conclusive proof that a sizeable number of Americans still don't know the meaning of the word ‘irony’. Here's to another four years. I'd laugh if it wasn't so awful.

In his victory speech, he said, “With good allies at our side, we will fight this war on terror with every resource of our national power so our children can live in freedom and in peace.”

Or, to put it another way, “war is peace.” The nightmares are powerful indeed.
