- Peace Garden: Bush likens Saddam's fall to end of Berlin Wall

Bush likens Saddam's fall to end of Berlin Wall

Thursday, April 14, 2005

The Washington Times reports on W at Fort Hood. Seems he is trying to write his own history book pages.

"On April 9th, we liberated the Iraqi capital," he said. "The toppling of Saddam Hussein's statue in Baghdad will be recorded, alongside the fall of the Berlin Wall, as one of the great moments in the history of liberty."
The president said the U.S.-led democratization of Iraq and Afghanistan has triggered signs of reform in Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the Palestinian territories.
"As the Iraq democracy succeeds, that success is sending a message from Beirut to Tehran that freedom can be the future of every nation," he said. "The establishment of a free Iraq at the heart of the Middle East will be a crushing defeat to the forces of tyranny and terror, and a watershed event in the global democratic revolution."
Now W, just a minute. Let's wait until we are out of Iraq and there is no bloodshed to declare a victory. Also, the Berlin wall came down through a multitude of actors, actions and factors. That Saddam statue came down through bombs, blood, tow trucks nad some great media planning. Let's not jump to the end of the story just yet. Your place in history will be written by others and will include all your actions - wars based on lies, trade deficits, environmental chaos, election tricks, slips of the tongue, slips of character, slips of judgement...
