If I Were Emperor Of The World, This Is What Would Happen, Which Is One Of The Reasons I'll Never Be Emperor Of The World.

Let me be clear. I will shed no tears for Osama Bin Laden. If there is a God or Buddha or Zeus or any kind of supernatural karmic force in the universe, Osama Bin Laden is rotting in hell where he belongs. He met a violent end and was shown no mercy, which is as it should be.

But to my friends in Afghanistan I would say I'm sorry. I'm sorry we put you through this while we were chasing after this guy. Ten thousand of you who didn't ask for any of this are now dead, three times as many people than were killed on 9/11. Many times more have been maimed, shattered, scarred and devastated. And every person directly affected had a mother, a father, a wife or daughter or son. A best friend or lover. That's a lot of bad karma in motion.

This is my promise to you though. The bad karma is broken tonight. Osama Bin Laden was blowback from our policy of arming the Taliban in order to gain an advantage in the global chess game we were playing with the Soviet Union, and there will be no more blowback. From this day forward your affairs are yours, and the only business we will mind will be our own. If you would like a friend to help you progress towards a modern, sophisticated society and all the advantages in daily life it provides, we will be happy to be one. If you prefer to have no further dealings with us, your decision will be respected. No longer will we intervene to pick winners or losers among the people who seek to govern you or anyone else in the world. From this day on you are truly independent, which means you are free to make bad decisions. May you choose wisely.

Because there could be no better memorial to the people who died on 9/11 than a world in which the next Osama Bin laden finds it impossible to get any recruits. From this day forward that is the world we are working towards.

And to my friends in Iraq, I'll say this. That last guy was an idiot. Seriously stupid. You kinda have to live here to understand what happened and even then it's a little hard to comprehend. Hopefully we have learned what happens when one so dumb is given so much power. We're very, very, sorry. If there is a God or Buddha or Zeus or any kind of supernatural karmic force in the universe, one day George Bush will be sharing a room in hell with Osama Bin Laden.

Peace be with you.
