Bush is scary

George Bush has unscrupulously used scare tactics to garner support for his immoral invasion of Iraq, lying to us, for example, about "victory" there being essential in the "war on terror."
The irony is that whereas he has scared us, the reason is not terrorism. He has done so via his incompetent leadership and the current and future repercussions of it. His blunder in Iraq has destroyed that country, and caused the deaths of perhaps a half million innocent people. The civil war there could evolve into a regional war in the Middle East, which would threaten the security and stability of the entire planet.
George Bush is the most feared person on the planet. His arrogance and infallibility complex, combined with his position of extreme power, are indeed reasons to be alarmed. Further, his "situational science" policies and disdain for crucial issues like global warming and alternative energy intensify the fear.
George Bush's "scare tactics" have surely worked on me!
