Iraq War

Remember back in the First Gulf War.
Iraqi Soldiers invaded Kuwait, and it took a coalition of forces to drive them back.
Mostly U.S., but also British and many others liberated Kuwait.
Well Bush 41 never toppled Saddam Hussein, so one of the legacys was that The Al-Rashid hotel had a mosaic installed on the floor in the hotel Lobby that resembled Bush.
It wasn't a particularly flattering picture, and I guess in Arab culture that is very disrespectful to walk on someones picture.

Sometimes I think that Bush 43 was hopeful of going to war with Iraq just to tear out the floor of the Al-Rashid Hotel.

Somehow, I don't have a problem with that.
