I understand former President George W. Bush is coming to Woodward on the 4th of July. Should he be welcomed? No.
This president led our military forces into a war of choice, a war that should not have happened, a war that has cost the lives of more than 4,300 U.S. soldiers, more than 35,000 injured, some hurt for the rest of their lives, and countless thousands of Iraqi people killed and wounded.
Does anyone remember the Vietnam War? Another war of choice: 58,000 dead, countless lives ruined to this day. Should we celebrate President Bush's legacy? I think not.
It's time to think about the reality of Bush's time in office, the military and economic mess he got us into and hold him responsible for it.
