President invokes false flag event one more time to justify continuation of interventionist foreign policy
Wednesday, Sept 3, 2008
In a gut wrenching speech enforcing interventionalist neoconservative foreign policy Bush stated:
“We live in a dangerous world… and we need a president who understands the lessons of Sept. 11, 2001: that to protect America, we must stay on the offense, stop attacks before they happen and not wait to be hit again.”
Bush went on to explain how he “stood in the ruins of buildings knocked down by killers and promised the survivors I would never let them down. I know the hard choices that fall solely to a president.”
He then stated that McCain has “the judgment, the experience and the policies” to continue on the same course.
Bush also continually spoke of McCain’s consistent support for his policies on the Iraq war, praising the senator for his “character” in backing the White House’s “surge” of tens of thousands of new U.S. troops in Iraq last year.

“That is the kind of courage and vision we need in our next commander-in-chief,” Bush said.
Bush’s comments serve as a clear indication that a vote for McCain represents a vote for the continuation of preemptive war and interventionalist foreign policy.

Bush had been scheduled to be the main speaker at the convention on Monday night in, but canceled those plans due to hurricane Gustav. In attendance however were Laura Bush, Barbara Bush and George Bush Snr.
The president introduced the audience to his parents by stating:
“I want to say hello to two people in the hall with you tonight. I could have no finer examples of character, decency and integrity than my mom and dad, and I love you a lot.”
