"Should any Iraqi officer or soldier receive an order from
Saddam Hussein or his sons or any of the killers who
occupy the high levels of their government, my advice is
don't follow that order," Bush said. "If you choose to do so,
when Iraq is liberated, you will be treated, tried and
persecuted as a war criminal."

That's interesting .... The United States claims it has exemption from war crimes prosecution. On what logic? "Oh, we're the United States, and the same laws don't apply to us." is the logic.

Yet, now Bush is saying any Iraqi soldier is automatically guilty of war crimes, even if they didn't actually commit any?

And the USA says it doesn't need to belong to nuclear non-proliferation treaties .... and then gives nuclear weapons as a reason to go to war, even though the US has more than anyone.

What the hell is this all about, anyway?

I wish I could still laugh at Bush's foibles like saying "persecuted" and "nucular", but it just isn't funny anymore. It's damn scary.
