Bush wants us to honor "Captive Nations Week" ..wonder how Iraq feels?
Captive Nations Week, 2005

By the President of the United States of America

A Proclamation

America stands for freedom and supports those who are
oppressed. During Captive Nations Week, we reaffirm our
commitment to advancing democracy, defending liberty,
and protecting human rights around the world.

When President Eisenhower issued the first Captive
Nations Week proclamation in 1959, freedom was being
denied by communist regimes in Europe, Asia, and Latin
America. Millions were deprived of their rights to
freely practice religion, assemble in public, and
exercise freedom of speech. The Cold War and the
captivity of millions of people in Central and Eastern
Europe have since ended, and we have witnessed the rise
of democratic governments in countries across the
globe.

1. HAHAHAHAHA
OMG this is too funny. They should simply say: HAHA fuckers!

As the 80's song goes:

"in the US..."
"in the US..."
"In the USSR"
