I swear, he's getting his news from a different planet:
Across Iraq, life is being improved by liberty. Across the Middle East, people are safer because an unstable aggressor has been removed from power. Across the world, nations are more secure because an ally of terror has fallen. -- aWol, again

And more from his stupid little UN speech: people embrace hope over resentment and choose peace over violence. Bush hoped for war, resented France, and chose violence over peace. Not a free person, I guess.

The old regime starved hospitals of resources, so we have helped to supply and reopen hospitals across Iraq. Actually, it was the sanctions that starved the hospitals.

The old regime built up armies and weapons while allowing the nation's infrastructure to crumble, so we are rehabilitating power plants, water and sanitation facilities, bridges and airports. "Allowing the nation's infrastructure to crumble" under US bombs.

...the United Nations should assist in developing a constitution, in training civil servants, and conducting free and fair elections. And when they're done here, maybe they can help out in Iraq.

Yet every young democracy needs the help of friends. You mean like the US got from France?

The advance of democratic institutions in Iraq is setting an example that others, including the Palestinian people, would be wise to follow. Yeah, the Palestinians keep trying to pretend that Bush doesn't have a veto over their elections.

A second challenge we must confront together is the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Outlaw regimes that possess nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and the means to deliver them would be able to use blackmail and create chaos in entire regions. Bush is a prime example!

The founding documents of the United Nations and the founding documents of America stand in the same tradition. Both assert that human beings should never be reduced to objects of power or commerce, because their dignity is inherent. Both recognize a moral law that stands above men and nations which must be defended and enforced by men and nations. And both point the way to peace; the peace that comes when all are free. -- So explain Guantanamo Bay, George.

It boggles the mind that someone so stupid and hypocritical could ever be allowed to run a carnival ride, much less the most powerful government on earth.
