Bush Biggest Threat to World Peace?

In a new opinion study of Britain conducted by the newspaper “The Guardian”, President Bush is ranked as the biggest threat to world peace over tyrants such as Kim Jong-Il of North Korea and crazy man Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of the terrorist-state Iran. I don’t necessarily doubt the numbers; hence the subtitle of my blog, but it goes to show you how effective an anti-American sentiment mixed with skewed reporting can be on a weak minded European.

So who is actually the bigger or biggest threat to world peace? Well, of course, that depends on what your definition of “world peace” is:

If world peace to you is doing nothing relevant as rogue regimes like North Korea commit genocide on its own people; placing many innocent victims in torture camps and starving the rest of the population to death while building and testing weapons of mass destruction, then yes: George Bush might be considered a bigger threat.

However, if you subscribe to the notion that tyrants who slaughter their own people, support terrorism, threaten allies, and are building nuclear weapons can in no way be considered “peace”, then you understand that it’s not George Bush that is the biggest threat but it’s people like Kim Jong-Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Many people fit in the “
Pacifism is Objectively Pro-Fascist” category. This was recently seen with Hans Blix whose philosophy basically is: It’s better to be dying brutally in acid baths, torture chambers and by chemical weapons under Saddam Hussein than it is dying in a struggle to establish a democratic and a more free country… especially if that struggle is led by the United States.
