President George H.W. Bush has passed away. On foreign policy he will be remembered as having betrayed the people of Iraq when he left them to be slaughtered by Saddam Hussein after his Administration encouraged the Iraqis to rise up. He left them to be mowed down by Saddam’s aerial bombing. The bitterness is still fresh in the minds of many Iraqis today. The American empire’s disastrous meddling in the Middle East has come at an untold cost to the lives of millions of innocent Muslims.
