Bush’s View of Murder

PRESIDENT BUSH: Well that’s — killers taking innocent life is, in some cases, sectarian. I happen to view it as criminal, as well as sectarian. I think any time you murder somebody, you’re a criminal. And I believe a just society and a society of — that holds people to account and believes in rule of law protects innocent people from murderers, no matter what their political party is.

That’s from a White House Press Release

So I’m going to go ahead and assume that President Bush believes that the 100,000+ Iraqi civilians killed by the United States over the past few years are all guilty as Christian Sin.

Or, he’s saying that America is not a Just Society.

Neocons out there want you to believe that there’s a Good and an Evil. No nuance. No subtlety. No context. Yet watch them provide context for this, and then carefully and irresponsibly substitute Bush’s vagueness for subtlety and nuance.
