Rep. Gosar Demands Peace To Replace ‘Big Mistake’ of Ukraine War
May 30, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—On May 28, U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), a strong opponent of NATO proxy Ukraine war against Russia, released a stinging statement, in his weekly newsletter “This Week with Gosar,” entitled, “Confirmation That We Are Making a Big Mistake in Ukraine.” He asserts: “If you still had any doubt about what a big mistake the United States’ involvement in Ukraine is, comments from George W. Bush should settle the issue.
“George W. Bush ran an inept presidency that sought out war and conflict all over the globe. The state department was run by neo-cons, under the guidance of war monger Vice President Dick Cheney, and they used our military like it was a toy. They invaded Iraq for no reason. Actually, they lied and made up a falsehood about ‘yellow cake’ and weapons of mass destruction. They used our military to destroy Iraq, kill over a million Iraqis, while spending $1 trillion in the process. Along the way, they got 5,000 of our soldiers killed and tens of thousands more wounded.
“Not content to destroy Iraq for no legitimate reason, they attacked Afghanistan. That country had done nothing to hurt the United States. They created a fake narrative that they were righting a ‘war’ against a feeling. That is, a ‘war on terror.’ In reality they used our military to terrorize Afghans, have our soldiers killed and wasted hundreds of billions of dollars.
“That all started under George W. It ended with a whimper and a big defeat under Biden when he retreated from Afghanistan after 20 years of war. Biden abandoned American citizens and others and left $80 billion of our military equipment as a gift to the Taliban.
“I point this out because this week George W. Bush came out and expressed his strong support for war in Ukraine, saying the U.S. should essentially open a blank checkbook and spend our national treasure in another war. No doubt he would like U.S. troops sent there to die as well. Instead of picking on a small country like Afghanistan, however, he wants us to fight nuclear armed Russia.
“It is warmongers like George W. Bush that have caused death and destruction wherever they go. They have practically bankrupted our country. I stand for peace. I would like, and have offered to broker, an armistice. I stand firmly against the Nazi brigades in Ukraine, and against the authoritarian and corrupt government of Ukraine. I therefore stand against George W. Bush in this regard.”
