You can add your very own John Hancock to this following bit of levity at PetitionOnline. So far they have 726, which seems pretty insufficient for something so self-evident, so we thought we’d help spread the word:
To: President of the United States of America
A PETITION DECLARING PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH TO BE A HORSE’S ASS
WHEREAS, George W. Bush’s ill-conceived war on Iraq is an irresponsible, destructive and unnecessary means of enforcing the spirit and letter of United Nations Resolution 1441, and;
WHEREAS, the Bush administration has shown blatant disregard for the wishes of a majority of the American people to seek approval of any military action through the United Nations Security Council prior to engaging in any invasion of Iraq, and;
WHEREAS, in the process of invading Iraq without United Nations Security Council approval George W. Bush has alienated the peoples of the world, broken ties with allies, and divided the people of the United States of America along fierce ideological lines, and;
WHEREAS, the stated goals of the Bush administration have shifted throughout the current crisis from “enforcing United Nations Resolution 1441” to “disarmament of weapons of mass destruction” to “liberation of the Iraqi people/regime change”, and
WHEREAS, the Bush administration provided no legitimate evidence that Iraq is in posession of nuclear, biological or chemical weapons prior to invading when evidence presented by adminstration Secretary Colin Powell before the U.N. Security Council has in fact been soundly debunked, and;
WHEREAS, the war on Iraq will cause harm to the people of the United States of America and potentially the entire world for generations by increasing the chance of terrorism against Western targets, decreasing American trade opportunities throughout the world and heightening the military resolve against the United States of America of those nations not part of the “Coalition of the Willing”;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That the citizens of the world do hereby proclaim that George W. Bush is a Horse’s Ass.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to George W. Bush, his wife, and his mother. So there.
WE THE SIGNERS OF THIS PETITION ENDORCE THE ABOVE PRINCIPLES OF THIS PETITION, AND AFFIX OUR NAMES HEREON IN SUPPORT OF THE DECLARATION THAT GEORGE W. BUSH IS A HORSE’S ASS.
