“If George Bush can be awarded, so can our current president. He is responsible as much as the people in this tent for endless war,” she shouted moments before the ceremony began.

By Christopher “Flood the Drummer®” Norris

11.12.18: Philadelphia – (Politics/Society): Outside of the heated tent on the lawn of the National Constitution Center, which on Sunday evening housed former U.S. President George W. Bush and wife, Laura, roughly two dozen protesters caused a cacophony.

“No awards for endless wars,” they shouted, as a bullhorn mimicked a siren. “Bush lied. People died,” was another refrain that competed against the ceremony’s staged speakers.

Mr. and Mrs. Bush were in Philadelphia on Veterans Day to receive the 2018 Liberty Medal, a distinguished award last year bestowed upon Mr. John McCain, the now deceased Republican Senator. But the demonstrators with About Face, a group of post-9/11 service members and veterans who are organizing to end a foreign policy of permanent war, declared the 43rd U.S. president as undeserving.

“I don’t think he understands that he destroyed the ancient part of human history in the Middle East and he’s displaced millions of millions of people. He’s destroyed so many lives, not just abroad, but here at home,” said

Mr. Jamie Kwebetchou, who traveled from his home state of Maryland to attend the rally.

On September 18th, 2001, then-President Bush signed into law a joint resolution authorizing the use of force against those responsible for attacking the United States on 9/11. Less than a month later, the U.S military officially launched Operation Enduring Freedom, which began with air strikes on al-Qaeda and Taliban forces.

Seventeen years later, troops continue to be deployed to Afghanistan, in what’s now the longest war in America’s history.

“Every morning at 7’oclock, I have my staff contact the Defense Department. I want to know exactly how many men and women have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq … every single one of them leaves behind a whole community,” said former Vice President Joe Biden, prior to him presenting Mr. Bush with the medal.

In his remarks, Mr. Bush didn’t mention the war in Iraq or Afghanistan. Though, he did say that in the decade since leaving the White House, he has befriended many veterans, especially those who enlisted post 9/11.

A Marine Corp veteran named Shantel, who’s also affiliated with About Face, said it disturbed her that the second worst president in history was being honored.

“If George Bush can be awarded, so can our current president. He is responsible as much as the people in this tent for endless war,” she shouted moments before the ceremony began.

U.S. President Donald J. Trump in 2017 said his original instinct was to pull out of the war. However, he ultimately decided to pursue an open-ended military commitment to prevent the emergence of a vacuum for terrorist. In a 2017 exclusive interview with NBC News, Gen. John Nicholson, a four-star Army general, said the war in Afghanistan had been a stalemate, but that Mr. Trump’s new strategy, which included the deployment of new troops, has reversed a decline in the U.S position.

Mr. Kwebetchou was discharged in May after he refused orders to deploy. The Air Force veteran said after meeting folks in Europe, Libya and Afghanistan who were affected by the war, and learning of the military industrial complex, he couldn’t come back home and participate in a system that’s murdering people indiscriminately.

When asked of Mr. Bush’s legacy, Mr. Kwebetchou said: “it’s buried in the Middle East.”

These people are overlooking the most important fact,and that is that the Bush Crime Family exploded like a bomb after both George's were in the WH.

All that Saudi oil money,all that Chinese export money,and who knows what other money they got from selling America down the drain?

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

The wars of the middle east clearly are the legacies of Bush I and II. Their fixation on Saddam Hussein as the danger to America was deliberately foolhardy. Rather Saddam was a danger to Iran and was the only protection for Jews and Christians.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

I wonder if these idiots protested the "Drone King" Obama when he received the Nobel Peace prize?

I somehow doubt it very much...

The Bush crime syndicate is evil, was evil and is historically so. From the Patriarch who enriched himself by arming Hitler, to Georgie Boy who has that pipeline of opium cranking out the profits for the world elites.

Bush lied and people did die. Then again, so did Obama, as is Trump and so on and so on and so on. The History of the United States for the past 100 years has been one of Empire building, murder of tens of millions, enslaving young men for war-making, and impoverishing its own citizens to pay for it. This was largely seen as the fault of the Republicans, but that is just perception.

Instituting a policy of "child support" for the Indians, and the manufactured "poor", is not a way to help, but to create dependents. That was the handiwork of the Democrats, but that too is just perception.

Both parties are quite happy with the way we are progressing. We the People have learned our lessons well. Obey, complain to your friends, write a few posts online, then tune in to the TV for further instructions and attitude. It is always about attitude.

THIS IS A TAG LINE...Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.
