Posted on 10/17/2019 6:59:28 AM PDT by libstripper
Former President George W. Bush, who led the United States into war across the Middle East, attacked President Trump on Wednesday night, saying U.S. intervention is necessary for the sake of peace around the globe.
During a panel alongside former President Bill Clinton at the Nir School of the Heart, Bush laid into Trump for his recent decision to withdraw up to 1,000 American troops from northeast Syria fulfilling his longheld campaign promise to bring troops home after more than a decade of war.
An isolationist United States is destabilizing around the world, Bush said, according to the Washington Posts Josh Rogin. We are becoming isolationist and thats dangerous for the sake of peace.

Somebody won’t be getting their war check....
That is why they are all pissed
Wars create income for the well connected
calling the “not this shite again” guy...
Hit the first lie while still reading the title - stopped right there.
His foreign and military advisers dropped us into a never-ending war in the Mideast that didn’t need to be started. All we had to do was partition Iraq, leave Saddam in place, and we would have had far fewer casualties on all sides. Sorry GW, wrong then, wrong now.
STAY OUT DA BUSHES!
Remember when W was in office and the media was all about harping on Haliburton and war for oil and defense contracts?
Oh you do?
The media doesn’t.
Now this sounds duplicitous because Trump got a lot of money for the military, but does he seem trigger happy to anyone here? Why is this a problem for the media?
Another confirmation that Trump is doing the right thing.
Interventionism is more of a threat to peace than isolationism.
Thanks to your dad Georige we are in this mess. Trump is merely cleaning up the mess Bush 1-Clinton-Bush 2 and Obama created.
What is the vital US Security interest involved in the US giving the Kurds a US backed military shield to hide behind while they continue their separatists attacks on the internationally recognized Governments of Iran, Iraq and Turkey?
So were just suppose to endlessly continue the Emperor of Earth polices of the last 4 US Presidents? We suppose to write a blank check payable in US blood and treasure to every oppressed group everywhere?
Frankly I prefer Trumps return to the pre Bush family traditional US policy. Bush the 1st made a massive mistake ending our Over the Horizon posture in the ME. By failing to decisively win Desert Storm in 1991 Bush locked us in a full body hug with the Middle East tar-baby ever since.
It is time the USA start figuring out how to pry ourselves off that mess. Like the Border Crisis Congresss complete lack of any responsible action over Obama/Clinton/Biden/McCains misguided adventure in Syria required the President to take action.
From the man who refused to secure America’s borders and tried to make citizens of illegal aliens, many of them dangerous people.
GWB and family, NWO pukes! Or is that pigs? Whatever!
Terri Schiavo, Coward Bush, Terri Schiavo.
Since when are we supposed to be the world’s cops?
The more we can reflect back on G W Bush’s administration, the phrase “Mission Accomplished” takes on a new meaning.
“Iraq, Libya, and Syria rally worked out well, didn’t they, guys? “
Did you support the Iraq war at the time?
Go pound sand Shrub!
What a pathetic a$$wipe!
