HOW CAN ANYONE GIVE THIS MAN A "MEDAL OF PEACE".

This is actually pretty funny.

Fair enough, he might have helped towards the elimination of HIV but peace?

He goes against almost everyone of these..


pandemic diseases, extreme poverty, illiteracy, self-centered leadership and spiritual emptiness.


And lets not forget how he made those middle easterners eat all that war and death.





Someone should give me a medal of peace for not going nuts when i read that article

Maybe most really are not able to have rational well thought out opinions. What with all the chemicals in the food and tap water. Not to mention when you watch t.v. your brain just takes in what its being told without debate. Most don't go back later to dissect everything they just took in. That's the whole point of watching it in the first place. To be simply 'informed'. I personally think that yes. The propaganda works that well. OR, there really are not as many people that back Bush as we may think. Who comes up with those numbers now? Are they not falsified as well? I'm sure that the citizens in Germany were told Hitler was a great guy as well.

Obama again praises Bush's AIDS relief efforts

President-Elect Barack Obama offered praise for at least one aspect of President Bush’s foreign policy Monday, during videotaped remarks to the Saddleback Civil Forum on Global Health hosted by Pastor Rick Warren.

“I salute President Bush for his leadership in crafting a plan for AIDS relief in Africa and backing it up with funding dedicated to saving lives and preventing the spread of the disease,” Obama said. “…My administration will continue this critical work to address the crisis around the world.”



Obama’s nominee for Secretary of State, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, said at the same event she wanted to “commend” Bush for the program, which she called “bold” and “important.”


politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...

If the guy who promises to go after the Bush administration to see if they committed crimes can praise Bush, why can't some of you guys?

Hell, even Hillary praised Bush for his work.

Do you even know what the award is for? or are you just basing your assumptions on the title of the thread? Read into the thread and if you still feel the same way then, oh well.

I will post it again.

The PEACE is an acronym not the peace that most of you think.


Pastor Rick Warren awarded President George W. Bush the International Medal of P.E.A.C.E. for his AIDS relief program. The PEACE acronym stands for promotion of reconciliation, equipping servant leaders, assisting the poor, caring for the sick and educating the next generation.


PEACE in the Medal of Peace is an Acronym

Many of you guys are obviously reading only the first post or just the title. I don't think anybody in their right mind would give a peace award to a war President without realizing that they would be the butt joke of society. At least read the entire first page of the thread to ensure that nobody hasn't contradicted or refuted the story.

Umm the news articles never mentioned that Bush solved AIS/HIV, he was given a medal for helping to fight AIDS/HIV. Theres a difference.


One of the first things Bush did after taking office was immediately stop funding to all foreign women's clinics.

Why? Because some offered abortion. Like that is the only thing they did.

How does stopping financial aid for women's clinics in foreign poverty stricken areas help fight AIDS/HIV?

That's Great!!

I also heard that Dennis Kucinich won Congo's B.A.D.M.F.R. Award. That stands for Bad Ass Dictator Mega Fear Ruler award which is just excellent as well! Congratulations to George and Dennis!

Please, you have to give up this line. Its so unbecoming of you. Bush did not deserve that award. Even if there is something to be said about his contribution to fighting AIDS in Africa he absolutely violated ALL the rest of the items that silly and misleading acronym stands for.
Even you have to admit that.

couldn't agree with you more there. when i first started reading the article i was thinking that its just an elaborate joke and was waiting for the punch line. sadly i was disappointed.

but i think you had it spot on that it is so that masses can see bush as a valid president - and i personally believe it may be the first in a whole string of things to come to 'soften' our memory about the bush jnr era. One shouldn't forget that it was in 2005 that Bush Snr. started talking about Jed Bush being in the white house someday.
Bush III for Prez

If the people accurately remember the Bush II legacy then what hope is there for Jeb to be the future leader of the free world? Our memories need to be altered in order to fulfill their aim somehow.

When the George Herbert Walker Bush - C.I.A. Building was dedicated by George Tenet he commented that he'd like to thank Mr. Bush "for preserving" the CIA. No kidding, killing Kennedy did that for sure.

An almost humorous attempt to improve a legacy of failure with a shinny medal.

I am wondering what the criteria would be for this medal?

I can think of a few other historical figures who may also be deserving of such a prestigious award.


Care to guess who they would be?

Did anyone else think of that children's story, "The Emporer's New Clothes" when they read this?

I mean really, he gets a shiny medal to make him feel better, but considering the situation and the acronym PEACE, isn't that kind of ridiculous?

The world since George Bushs' presidency has just spiralled down to a worse state of affairs. He has fanned the flames of hate with war and sanctions and they give him a peace reward?

It's rare i'm speechless, but in all truth i just don't know what else to say.
