When Bush got the boot


Apropos of the editorial At boot camp (December 16), no doubted the Iraqi journalist showed his anger which Bush fully deserves. The invasion of Iraq was totally unwarranted. The policies of Bush have also been disastrous for his own country, the US. He could neither pre-empt not act quickly enough to prevent the great recession. He acted in haste and on partisan interest without seeing the repercussions, either in his own country or outside. The boot salute is a fitting gesture to say goodbye to a man responsible for much of the woes of the new Millennium.
