December 21, 2005 – West Palm Beach, FL – Today, 2008 Presidential Contender, Daniel Imperato spoke out on President George W. Bush’s series of public address on the war in Iraq and the war on terror.
“While we the people of the United States of America are people of passion, concern, and for the most part want to help the rest of the world, I believe the people of the United States of America are not being shown the truth of the after effects of the war in Iraq,” stated Imperato.
Bush, according to Imperato, has lowered his expectations for Iraq because of the mistakes that he’s made.
“I believe that our president has come to realize that great mistakes have been made and he’s been weaning down and weakening his stance pertaining to the grave mistakes that have been made, the miscalculations that have been made, and deploying our troops based on the misguided intelligence provided to our administration,” said Imperato.
Imperato also felt that the war on terror and the war in Iraq were two separate issues, and not the same issue as our administration has suggested.
“While the people of the United States and the rest of the world are against the war in Iraq, I believe that they do support the stamp out of terrorism. Two separate issues, two separate horses. While I know that the American people and the people of the rest of the world do not want to lose troops to the rest of the war, I do believe that the people of the world are happy to see the plan of democracy in Iraq,” asserted Imperato.
Although Imperato was happy to see last week’s election in Iraq, he still had some major problems with the way American involvement is structured in the country.
“Why should it cost the American people, the taxpayers, $250+ billion to get people to line up and vote? Of course the people would turn out to vote. It’s like a baby opening up a new toy on Christmas day, especially a toy that the baby never played with before,” expressed Imperato.
At this point, Imperato felt that the cost was not proportional to the minimal results our nation has seen in Iraq.
“It cost our country, our citizens, and our economy, $250 billion to line them up, and may cost our taxpayers another $100 billion or so, keep them doing so. While I believe that we must attack our enemies outside the United States, before they attack us, I also believe that attack on terrorism has to be a unified global coalition, and not a burden placed solely on the shoulders of American taxpayers,” said Imperato.
“Yahshua, George W. Bush,” exclaimed Imperato, “It’s great to say let’s go get them before they get us. But just think with $250 billion spent on our infrastructure, our own security, our own intelligence capabilities, upgrading our technology, airline communications capabilities, shipping and cargo inspection capability, our telecommunications infrastructure, and creating a strong a wall around our country may have been more important in the long run to protect our citizens and to protect our nation against further intrusion by any and all parties.”
Yet even though mistakes have been made in Iraq, Imperato rejected the notion of some Democratic senators that we need a complete withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.
“Yes it’s true that we cannot pullout because it might send the wrong message. As our president says, the rest of the world will see us as cowards, and the Iraqi people will feel like they’ve been left high and dry. This is true Mr. President but the fact is that the people of the United States of America cannot provide an open checkbook being spent like a drunken sailor on everybody else’s issues but our own,” asserted Imperato.
“It was you George Bush who wrote the checkbook and you George Bush that can’t afford to write checks in the matter that you have. It’s you George Bush and the $277 billion deficit. It’s you George Bush that will look like a coward by pulling out, not the American people. It’s you George Bush that I call on to curb the bleeding. It’s you George Bush that needs to take accountability for your inappropriate spending. And it’s you George Bush that needs to come up with an oil for war-and-democracy program to pay back the United States of America and its taxpayers for your open checkbook habits.”
Imperato went on to remind President Bush that “whatever comes around goes around” and that although it is “easy to write those checks, it’s very difficult to replenish the well.”
As one of Imperato’s first major policy decisions, when in office, Imperato stated that we would demand repayment of US war expenses from Iraq.
“So I stand up to tell the rest of the people, as ‘The People’s President 2008’, that my policy would be to demand an immediate agreement with the Iraqi people and government for the repayment through oil to the USA in order to show comradery and to show the American people that, like the Iraqi people, we are all human beings and we all need to be dealt with fairly.”
Imperato pointed out that we need to secure repayment for our cost incurred, and there are no guarantees that our money won’t be spent in vain.
“At this point we are on the low end of the seesaw; it’s about time that you balance the act. Not only should you address the fact that we’ve already spent $277 billion and that we need to be repaid, you unconditionally must secure the repayment of anymore spending that may create democracy in Iraq, but then again may create another Palestinian-Israeli conflict in Iraq and may utterly turn out to be a loss of some $300 billion of the American taxpayers money,” stated Imperato.
After all that has transpired in Iraq, Imperato felt ‘enough was enough’.
“While I support you George Bush as our president, but I’ve had enough of ‘Checkbook Charlie’, George, and I’ve had enough of your spending. The American people would be happy enough to help the Iraqis and we are paying the price through the loss of our troops. Isn’t that enough?”
Imperato went on to conclude his statement with the following remarks, “I also encourage you President Bush, to take serious notice of my statements, and to come up with a plan for the country to repay our debt, to pull back our troops, and to get a collaborative team of global Special Forces to deal with the fight against terrorism. And as far as the news scandal of eavesdropping I know you are listening to my phone calls everyday, I hope that you pay attention to this one.”
