Bush Defends Ban on War Grief

Author: President Calls on Nation to Forget War's Human Cost

Posted: 10:35 AM (-0500 TZ)


WASHINGTON (GWB) --
President Bush on Thursday defended his decision to exclude grief from U.S. war coverage, saying that lost lives and limbs show that the "evildoers still hate us" and thus confirm that we are "on the path of freedom."

The president, making his first appearance at a funeral for Americans killed in Iraq, posed beside a flag draped coffin and claimed that death is "no big deal," especially if it helps Karl Rove "get the job done in 2004."  He brushed off accusations that the coffin was a plastic fake filled with shredded Enron documents.  "It's an election year.  Irresponsible charges are the way the Democrats and Al Qaeda do business."

Bush's happy-face policy calls for cheerful optimism in the wake of daily terrorist attacks, which the White House insists are paving the way for full democracy in Iraq.   France, Germany, Russia and Canada remain unmoved by the president's remarks, however, refusing to contribute troops to Operation Sitting Duck on the spurious grounds that President Bush "told the international community to go to hell" in the lead-up to war.  In an awkward moment yesterday Bush conceded that he understood their position, then added that if they didn't change it he would "liberate" all four countries with an avalanche of daisy cutters.

"American men and women have risked their lives to free Bechtel and Halliburton, and now it's time for others to help out," Bush told reporters after his day in the cemetery.  "The U.S. people understand that spilling blood is essential to gushing profits," he added.  "God Bless America."

According to U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz's memo posted on a Pentagon Web site, countries that shed their blood for U.S. corporations will be awarded primary rebuilding contracts.  "Blood and profits must flow together," explains the memo, so when the "Coalition of the Killing" offers up its young citizens, the profit contracting will reflect that.  That's what the U.S. taxpayers demand."

Bush said he spoke Wednesday with French President Jacques Chirac, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and Russian President Vladimir Putin --  requesting that they send their youthful fodder to Baghdad "as soon as possible."  Asked whether invading a non-threatening nation might be a violation of international law," Bush said,  "I don't know what you're talking about by international law."  Senior political adviser Karl Rove added that international law is no obstacle to U.S. national security:  "If it accords with our objectives, it's a redundancy; if it deviates, its irrelevant," explained Rove.
