Actually, here are a few things strange:
“Insane Anglo Warlord” is an anagram for Ronald Wilson Reagan.
“He bugs Gore” is an anagram for George Bush (also “Be Gore’s ugh”).
The US Navy lists 234 instances that the United States has invaded, occupied, or otherwise sent troops into other countries other than for “normal peacetime purposes,” outside of the declared wars such as World War II. The list is only current to 1993 and does not include more recent military excursions. It also does not include the numerous covert operations that the military has conducted worldwide. Nor does it include proxy wars such as Angola or the Soviet-Afghan war. The list includes over 63 countries, many of which the US has invaded two, three, or more times. US troops have been sent into Nicaragua at least 11 times, Mexico 12 times, and China 24 times.
When Condoleezza Rice became Bush’s foreign policy advisor, Chevron had already named an oil tanker after her.
Barack Obama is a distant cousin to George W. Bush (11th cousins). He is more closely related to his 7th or 8th cousin, Dick Cheney.
