In an hour-long discussion on Facebook Live, the website’s founder and chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, interviewed America’s fearless 43rd cowboy president, George W Bush Jr. Bush repeatedly joked and said he was doing the interview to sell books (read George Bush Praises Obama, Talks WikiLeaks & Admits He’s Just Trying to Sell Books in Facebook Webcast).
He also praised the Obama administration (red! flag!) for pumping more troops into Afghanistan. In fact, Bush said putting more troops into Afghanistan could be applauded.
If you weren’t already weary about Obama’s plans for Afghanistan, you should be now. The historic and disastrous eight years of Bush Jr.’s war policies and presiding over the looting of the treasury should probably tell you if this cowboy applauds Obama’s Afghanistan plan, that plan might not be so great.
In fact, the plan might be catastrophic. After all, the Pentagon has aspirations of withdrawing American troops from Afghanistan in 2014 (read I’m So Happy the Pentagon Has “Aspirations” of Being Out of Afghanistan by 2014).
About Iraq, Bush said to hang in there. “It’ll work.” What will work, exactly? Bush believes Iraq will be a stable democracy, eventually. If invading foreign countries and sending American troops around the world to create stable democracies were constitutional and free, then I’d applaud him. But the violence and malfeasance happening in Iraq is neither constitutional nor free. A lot of blood and treasure. But either way, George W. Bush Jr. is only using Facebook Webcast to try and sell his book, Decision Points. (read Bush Jr.’s New Book, Decision Points: I’m Searching It for Hidden Clues)
When asked about the most recent WikiLeaks fiasco, Bush said, “Leaks are very damaging and people who leak ought to be prosecuted.” Kind of like when Bush said that all evildoers would be punished. And no evildoers would go unpunished. You know, all them evildoers and leakers and shakers. You just know ’em when you see ’em.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg told Bush that he admired him for sticking with what he thought was right. I don’t care either way about Zuckerberg, and I didn’t see the documentary about him, but that was a stupid thing to say.
I admire you, Mr. George W. Bush Jr., for destroying millions of lives and families around the world, for looting the treasury, for stripping back EPA regulations, and for brazenly making the United States of America a country that tortures its enemies and makes them pose in women’s lingerie while army men take pictures and send them to their friends.
At least Bush Jr. didn’t waver on that. He stuck with what he thought was right. Nice job, Zuckerberg. Hitler pushed his way pretty far through also. And that couldn’t have happened if the man ever questioned or doubted himself.
On Bush’s final Facebook Webcast note, he said, “If you see me in an airport, I hope you wave with all five fingers, but if you don’t you won’t be the first.”
Instead of waving, why don’t we detain him, read him his rights, and prosecute him.
