George Bush the Baby

I thought this was a pretty good article that you wouldnt see in most Newspapers.

--------
Thursday, August 28, 2003

BAGHDAD, Iraq It's a fair bet that one Baghdad baby won't run into anybody else in Iraq with the same name.

An Iraqi couple has named their 6-week-old baby boy George Bush to show their appreciation for U.S. efforts to force Saddam Hussein out of power.

If the couple had had twin boys, the other baby would have been named Tony Blair ,because the father says both the U.S. and Britain liberated Iraq.

The boy's mom told the Associated Press Television News that all Iraqis hated Saddam's regime, and that President Bush saved the Iraqi people from Saddam.

As the woman did the interview, little George Bush screamed in his crib.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Now there's a kid that's gonna get his ass kicked in the schoolyards in Iraq... "Thanks Dad!"
It was a nice gesture on the Dad's part but the kid's going to catch hell for it.

Admins, please delete this nonsense. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I welcome the chance to hear them and maybe learn something or teach the other side something. I believe in a good debate now and then but this guy clearly posted this here just to piss people off, not to debate. Please make his post and then this post go "poof."

gone the wrong way to fast

I shouldnt of posted what i did in that particular thread. It wont happen again....I did not mean any disrespect to Americans. But I do stand by my opinion on George W Bush.



And as for the article, if the Iraqi father believes that, it was so honoured to name is son after the president, then more power to him everyone needs a hero, especially uncertain times.
