Bush: Troops give lives, I give up golf

A true leader!

US President George W. Bush has revealed the great sacrifice he has made for American troops fighting in Iraq by giving up playing golf.

In an interview with Politico and Yahoo News, President Bush admitted that he has been touched by the true cost of war in Iraq.

“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” he said.

“I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”
President Bush added that he made the decision several months after the invasion of Iraq when the top United Nations official in Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello, was killed in the 2003’s bombing of the UN headquarters in Baghdad.

“I remember when de Mello, who was at the UN, got killed in Baghdad as a result of these murderers taking this good man’s life,” Bush said.

Pundits believe in the mind of the US president, who waged the war based on faulty intelligence against oil-rich Iraq, no sacrifice is too great for the troops who have sacrificed life and limb, mental health and family integrity.

Some say Bush deserves praise for the recent revelation -the decision to take a five-year hiatus from the game-, recalling a post 9/11 appearance by the president in 2001.

“We must stop the terror. I call upon on all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers,” said President Bush in a golf outfit. “Now, watch this drive.”
