HIGHJACK AIRPLANES AND CRASH THEM INTO OUR
BUILDINGS AND KILL OUR AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Thank you for saving MILLIONS of lives in
Africa with PEPFAR the largest health
initiative ever initiated by one country to
address a disease.
Thank you for bringing to justice a mass
murder dictator who killed hundreds of
thousands of his own people that had every
intention of developing nuclear weapons,
thank you for liberating 50 million people in
Iraq. Thank you on behalf of the world for
ending a madman saving god knows how many!
When a humanitarian like Bush makes it his
mission to protect American citizens lives,

everyone. Its a sad world when so many
slander accuse and blame you for their own
short comings, instead of thanking you for
being a true leader and for your many many
contributions to the world!
