    Another cheap shot at hobbyist painters? The Darth Vader depiction is good, though.

    The cheap shot is about refusing to forgive, nothing against painters in general.

    “Refusing to forgive”. Forgive what?

    “Here;s the Bush statement.”

    If you look at that statement in the sense of the Chinese “May you live in interesting times.”, there is nothing complimentary in that statement. In fact, it could be interpreted as a veiled warning.

    “f you look at that statement in the sense of the Chinese “May you live in interesting times.”, there is nothing complimentary in that statement. In fact, it could be interpreted as a veiled warning.”

    Bush made those remarks in direct response to a reporter asking if Putin could be trusted. I think Bush believed he & Putin could work together the way Reagan & Gorbachev did. Those comments date to 2001. By the end of his term, I suspect Bush regretted those words & his trust.

    “Remember that this was 2001, when Bush had been in office for 5 months. And that he had no foreign policy experience. Going up against a former KGB guy. Russia was not as strong then as now. Bush saw what Putin wanted him to see then. Now, he projects differently. Years of power and a stronger Russia.”

    Bush was the son of a former CIA chief. I don’t buy the arguments that he was ignorant or foolish. He did hold some highly flawed assumptions about the fact that even a sole Superpower has real limitations on the global stage, but they are shared by a lot of highly educated, experienced, ‘smart’ people. Many of whom, happen to be well paid by companies that benefit from our overseas meddling.

    “I don’t think Bush could construct a veiled warning, even given a month to think on the subject.”

    Personal opinion does not always equal reality. The stupid do not make it through flight school.

    The dark side found a coalition of the willing in the Bush admin.

    That Chinese statement is considered a curse.

    “That Chinese statement is considered a curse.

    I’m fully aware of that. That’s why I referenced it.

    Was Pearl Harbor and 9/11 a lie?
