Trigger Happy by holymackeral Trigger Happy by holymackeral
Well everybody, we're at the eve of war, and it seems like there's nothing we can do but sit at home and stare at the TV screens with detached powerlessness. Am I scared? You better BELIEVE I am! Heck, I've already constructed a bomb shelter out of duct tape and cardboard boxes in my backyard! (It's also got a months supply of pringles and moist towlettes, in case this takes a while) Still, while the war on Iraq may be speedy and successful, my large concern lies in what will happen afterwards.

What's terrifying here is that that our incompetent monkey of a president has constantly acted like the opinions of the world are irrelevant, and has shown unending disrespect for the opinions of other countries. In a time when we should be rallying support around the world to end terror, Bush has instead been bullying every country in even mild opposition to us by saying, "You're either with us or against us." By using meaningless buzzwords like "Axis of Evil" in his speeches, he is alienating and insulting our fellow countries when he should be respectfully asking for their help. Rather than try to make his case, Bush threatens anyone who looks at him sideways. Perhaps worst of all is the fact that America has now lost complete credibility with the United Nations, which was up until now the only thin ray of hope we've ever had towards something resembling world peace. Let's face it- the reason we were attacked on 9-11, and by other terrorists in the past, is because much of the world hates our guts. By acting without the support of the world, we are just fueling the worldwide anti-Americanism that got us in trouble in the first place!

Anyhow, (sorry for the long rant!) this is a picture showing George "War" Bush and his paranoid, cowboy approach to world diplomacy. As far as I can tell, a platypus with mental birth defects would make a better president!

With the first attacks taking place just hours ago in Baghdad, i feel thatTrigger Happy by holymackeral is a very fitting secondary feature for today. It's a funny take on a serious issue, so take a look and offer your opinions. (Selected by +ekud) ( Featured by ekud )

Dude, George W. Bush was a douche. 
I don't even know how he was able to stay in presidency, either.

I would have made an excellent foreign affairs minion under the Dubya Administration, because I can say, in multiple langauges, "excuse him, Your Excellency, the president didn't mean that."

And what does the opinion of the rest of the world matter when it's OUR SAFETY on the line? Granted, if it were up to me, we would be a mostly isolationist country, but I digress, there is no way you can deny that former President Bush kept us safe.
The fact is, you don't look at him sideways, you are giving a long rant on why you don't like him, based on bias, and poor facts.
You don't even know what you're talking about, do you? You think radical Islam attacked us because they "hate our guts" for no adequately explored reason? Are you insane?

The rest of the world matters because our safety is kind of dependent on them. It's not like we're going to turn around and attack ourselves.

Every President since, well... Washington has violated the Constitution in some way. Some of the worst were Lincoln, Wilson, FDR, Bush II, and now the "no paper trail" wonder Obama. The American people have been conned and exploited by the government since the nation was founded.

I agree with the artist in every aspect but one: The United Nations will never solve any significant problems or bring us any closer to world peace. It is a bloated, power-hungry government like any other. People can interact peacefully with one another without government. It's time the State and its cronies realized that.

I giggled at the fact that people treated this like a forum and started ranting, arguing, and stuff. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Welcome to DeviantDrama, world.

I do enjoy the artwork. Very amusing. And I must say that the belt Bush is wearing is suggestive.

I know this comment is incredibly late, but you had every right to write what you wrote, draw what you drew, and feel the way you feel.

Incredible talent you've got. It's mixed with the ability to animate, a sense of humor, and your intellect. Very rare.

Obama is Bush III. There's never any real change in foreign policy. Just like there is little difference between the Democrats and Republicans. Both of them want a huge empire lording over the world and massive domestic programs controlling the populace at home.
