On the Fact that President Bush's Mixed Signals Both Before and After the First Gulf War (Before When April Glaspie Told Hussein and Aziz that the U.S. Would Stay Out of Iraq's Border Dispute with Kuwait and After When He Strongly Implied that He Would Help the Shia Depose Hussein and Then Didn't Lift a Finger) Ended Up In the Needless Deaths of Hundreds of Thousands of Iraqis and, so, No, Honoring the Man as Some Great Foreign Policy Hero/Genius, I'm Not

I try not to make it a habit to slam people immediately after they die but that funeral really rubbed me the wrong way and so I'm merely adding a wee-bit of perspective here, that's all. Boom done.
