Bush visits Europe to gloat over his legacy of murder and destruction
London, UK, June 15th 2008 – President Bush has used his farewell tour of Europe to gloat over his legacy of murder and destruction in the Muslim world and plan with Western leaders the next chapter of America’s colonialism around the globe. Denouncing the "misinformation and propaganda" against the USA, Bush has used the European tour to make further threats to Iran, have further talks on the Middle East "peace process" and defend his invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, "Bush has used his visit to Europe to review the progress of America’s colonialism in the Muslim world with his European counterparts, while planning the next chapter of America’s foreign policy – threatening Iran, securing the brutal occupation of Palestine by Israel, and Iraq and Afghanistan by the US and its allies."
"How can anyone believe that the United States can bring peace to the Middle East or wider Muslim world? This is the same government whose hands are soiled with the blood of over 650,000 civilians in Iraq, which has supported Israel’s brutal onslaught on the Palestinians and has created a downward spiral of violence and instability in Afghanistan. Bush may be leaving but his successor will continue broadly the same policies. Obama has threatened Pakistan and has offered slavish support to Israel and McCain has talked about maintaining a US presence in Iraq for a hundred years and views the current death and mayhem in Iraq as ‘winning’. The real problems are the colonial policies of the US, which transcends any single administration, and one of Bush’s legacies is that these are now clear for the world to see."
"It is no surprise that a recent poll by the Daily Telegraph website in late May showed that even in Britain, France, Germany and Russia, more people regarded the United States as a force for evil than for good."
"The long term stability of the Muslim world will never be ensured by the meddling of colonial powers which has led to almost a century of tyrannical rule, brutal occupation and instability. Only the return of the Caliphate will end the era of support for dictators and ensure that the Muslim world’s political destiny is not plotted in the corridors of the White House and Downing Street."
