The following was written by Thomas L. Friedman.  It is ostensibly a letter from George Bush to the people of Iraq.  I’m overjoyed to learn that as Americans we were allowed to sign Bush’s name to our letters, because I’ve got a ton of letters to write (from W) to the world.  I really wish someone would have told me about this sooner.  Maybe just one short note would do it.   I think something like this would suffice:

Dear World (USA included),

I’m sorry for being such an arrogant, moronic, power hungry, law breaking, dumbass screw-up.

Sincerely,
George W. Bush

Friedman: Dear Iraqi friends

By Thomas L. Friedman
Published: September 24, 2008

From: President George W. Bush

To: President Jalal Talabani of Iraq, Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, Speaker Mahmoud al-Mashadani

Dear Sirs,

I am writing you on a matter of grave importance. It’s hard for me to express to you how deep the economic crisis in America is today. We Americans are discussing a $1 trillion bailout for our troubled banking system. This is a financial 9/11. As Americans lose their homes and sink into debt, they no longer understand why we are spending $1 billion a day to make Iraqis feel more secure in their homes.

For the past two years, there has been a debate in America over whether to set a deadline for a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. It seemed as if the resolution of that debate depended on who won the coming election. That is no longer the case. A deadline is coming. American taxpayers who would not let their money be used to subsidize their own companies – Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch – will not have their tax dollars used to subsidize your endless dithering over which Iraqi community dominates Kirkuk.

  2. Thomas L. Friedman is a conservative dickhead. I wanted to strangle him halfway through this letter for putting Iraq and Al Qaeda in the same sentence over and over. Al Qaeda wasn’t in Iraq until we upset the balance there. But I like your letter. It makes more sense.

  3. Silverstar, thanks, I thought so too.
