Neither New World Order George H.W. Bush nor Axis of Evil, Regime Change George W. Bush are going to go down as particularly great presidents, and the younger was particularly undistinguished. From Michael Scheuer on a guest post at theburningplatform.com:
I like Michael Scheuer a lot. I don’t really share his worldview however. He is a US patriot. He is machavellian and his only endgame is whatever is best for the United States by whatever means is necessary. I really don’t give a fuck about the United States myself. I look forward to the day when it breaks up into 8 or 9 independent states that are harmless to anyone but themselves. I have this ideology of liberty that compels me to not give a fuck about countries, even if it’s my own. Zarathustra
A lesson from two George Bushes: Never give the elite the benefit of the doubt

–“And thus the community perpetually retains a supreme power of saving themselves from the attempts and designs of anybody, even of their legislators, whenever they shall be so foolish, or so wicked, as to lay and carry on designs against the liberties and properties of the subject.” John Locke, Second Treatise, Chapter 13 (1)
–“General revolts and rebellions of a whole people never were encouraged now or at any time. They were always provoked.” Edmund Burke, 1777 (2)
Sentiment is human weakness that always is an obstacle to clear thinking, or at least it always is in my case. I have always given George H.W. Bush and and George W. Bush the benefit of the doubt because I thought both were patriots and decent men. The former flew more than 50 combat missions during World War II, and the latter seemed sadly trapped in, and manipulated by, a nest of Neoconservative and Israel-First cretins. Since early in 2016, however, I have come to see how stupid and blinding it is to let sentiment hide the clearly visible truth that the Bushes are not America’s friends.
The elder Bush was a disaster for America, his only accomplishment being that he kept the White House from the Democrats for a 4-year term. He is the author and first implementer of the totalitarian idea of a “New World Order”, which began what is now nearly 30 years of constant war for the United States. He laid the ground work for the current confrontation with Russia by greatly expanding NATO and unleashing Western greed to suck anything economically worth having out of the former USSR; he added countries to NATO that are irrelevant to U.S. security but sit right on Russia’s border; he squandered most of what President Reagan had accomplished; he fought an unnecessary, half-fought, unwon, and Islamist-benefiting war against Iraq; and he ran a reelection campaign against the whore-loving buffoon Bill Clinton that looked like it should have been in one of the lesser Marx Brothers movies. Finally, during the 2016 presidential campaign, Bush refused to endorse Trump, and his closest confidants suggested he preferred Hillary Clinton. Revalidating the McCain Rule that great physical courage does not connote even moderate brainpower or commonsense, it was all downhill for George H.W. Bush after the second Great War ended. Sadly, that decline ended up by delivering the United States to the malevolent hands and minds of Clinton and Obama, as well as to those of his son.
