WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former President George W. Bush on Tuesday praised the Arab spring movement and said the U.S. shouldn't fear the spread of freedom, even if it doesn't know what policies newly liberated countries will pursue.
"America does not get to choose if a freedom revolution should begin or end in the Middle East or elsewhere," Bush said. "It only gets to choose what side it is on."

Thanks for reminding you how stupid I was to have trusted you, Mr. Bush.
>> the U.S. shouldn’t fear the spread of freedom
Yeah. Like they have freedom now.
Did he really say this, or is this just the stupid MSM saying he said it?
We are all free to choose. Choose wisely.
Must be drinking again...
ugh. he was doing so well at remaining on the sidelines.
“Former President George W. Bush on Tuesday praised the Arab spring movement and said the U.S. shouldn’t fear the spread of freedom, even if it doesn’t know what policies newly liberated countries will pursue.”
So it’s okay to treat women as property and burn Christian churches? Somebody should give Bush a pretzel.
Islam is not freedom.
Stick to going to Rangers’ games, George.
Typical Arab, Moslem Lovin Bush!
(“Arab Spring...manly, yes, but I like it too.”)
Thank God this buffoon only had 8 years.
Bush probably said this. I saw him speak a few months ago, and his response to the Arab Spring was similar. He celebrated it.
funny talk since specifically, the current Regime fears freedom in the US, and in general, the entire government fears freedom in the US. So much so that they are willing to surrender sovereignty to the blue helmeted UN which should really have red helmets.
Somebody should photoshop the blue helmets into red with one of the commie symbols combined with the UN logo and of course, the bullet holes in it.
“So its okay to treat women as property and burn Christian churches? Somebody should give Bush a pretzel.”
Let me get this right. You’re wishing death by choking on the former President of the United States with that scummy, liberal “give Bush a pretzel” mantra because of a disagreement? He effectively said that we need to wait for these “revolutions” to play out? Do I agree with that. Nope. Do I wish death on him for his opinion ... HELL NO!
You are a DISGRACE to that uniform boy ... don’t you ever forget that you scumbag. Publicly wishing death on a current or former President is disgraceful at best.
Our current president supported violent revolt in Egypt and Libya and did NOT support the efforts in Iran to depose the Islamists.
Were the people of Poland any freer under the Soviets than they were under the NAZIs?
There is a difference between which movement is calling for revolt and regime change. Sometimes there needs to be opposition to several movements.
Meanwhile the middle east’s royal families still have their wealth and power and the socialists wring their collective hands that the West doesn’t give the poor over there enough money in the name of redistribution.
Terrorism isn’t caused by poverty. Arafat and Bin Laden were billionaires.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton supported war criminals who tortured, humiliated, and murdered a POW named Momar Gaddaffi. The Sec. of Hate chortled “we GOT him!!!”. War crimes charges are tossed around a lot. But they still have merit and war criminals are in the White House.
Freedom is spreading where again???
Did I sleep through a briefing?
