    bush....

    though I agree here.....

    but wat i feel is he was a great leader....and after the 9/11 he protected america and its interest at all costs..and that's wat a grt leader shud do...

    Doesn't his stupidity just show through all these comments? And Sourish, Bush has done more harm to the world than he has done good for his country.

    I can agree to what was done to Taliban but Iraq??? Even he agrees he made a mistake but can you call that a mistake when it affects so many innocent people? It is a bloody crime.

    And on top of that, he is more guilty of not solving problems being the most powerful person in the world. Instead of solving problems, he's created a lot of them.
