I recall a part in Bush's book, Decision Points, where he goes to Iraq and meets with some of the sheiks out in the desert. They gave him a hearty welcome and warm support.

As I remember the narrative, one of the sheiks said to Bush as he was leaving, "And if you need us, my men and I will go to Afghanistan to fight with you!"

Also, as a side note, true fact: there are many Kuwaiti boys named George Bush.

If you haven't read Bush's memoir, I highly recommend it. Along with Tony Blair's as well (My Journey).

Wish we had them as voters. Unfortunately, they would probably also vote to re-elect Keith Ellison.

Remember this?:

When he ran for president in 2004, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) rarely missed an opportunity to crack a few jokes about President Bush.

One of his better lines came after being told by reporters that Bush had taken a tumble during a bike ride. "Did the training wheels fall off?" Kerry quipped.

This week, however, he botched a Bush punch line so badly, that it may qualify as the political gaffe of the year. Speaking to college students in California, Kerry said, "You know, education -- if you make the most of it -- you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." (Watch video clip)

Yeah, Muslims are some awfully fickle friends.

Funny, Obama told us the world would soon love us after he took over.

Looks like he’s right. LMAO

Syria’s people need to clean up their own house. I know they’re hoping we’ll pull a Libya in Syria, but I don’t think we should.

As much as I’d like to think these folks are on our side, I still think they’re trying to tweak Obama into taking military action. Once done, who knows how much they’ll love the U. S. R. P. any longer.

Yes, I'm sure those losers miss Bush, and would love us to do their bleeding for them - again.

Not going to happen - wouldn't be prudent.

Excellent analysis. This is nothing more than an attempt to get Uncle Sam to do the heavy lifting again.

While I appreciate their sentiments, the last thing I want to see is US Forces in Syria.

If we gotta go, it ought to be Iran.

Kill the beast, once and for all.

Remember the poor Iranian girl in Tehran shown bleeding to death after being shot for protesting?

Obama dithered then, he dithered when it came time to get OBL and then had to finish 9 holes before the deed was done. Of course I'm still waiting for the Video since I have a hard time believing anything Obama says.

There were some big pro-American , pro-Bush rallies a few years ago in Syria; they initially broke out during a string of soccer matches, etc, the grew quite large. Seems there are some ethnic enclaves where the west is pretty popular.

I also agree with their view that the entire world is better off when Republicans are governing America.

Thanks for the mention. Sounds great.

We have our own soccer team booed at the Rose Bowl, and a a group of Syrians salute us in one of their stadiums.

Someone call Ripley’s.
