Responsibility is central to what it means to be human. Other creatures have life, consciousness, intelligence, and even some limited
ability at language; but only human beings are responsible to choose their manner of life and hence their destiny. All the religions of the world
emphasize, in one way or another, individual responsibility in matters of faith and practice..............MacVegan

“Indeed, I did have a relationship with Ms. Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and a personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible.”........President William Jefferson Clinton and MacVegan says "by not assuming responsibility and facing a failure or a mistake straight on, no matter how large a mistake or a failure, the consequences that are perceived by others and the damage to the intengrity of the people that trust you enormous and can irreversable. for example, if clinton, our president, had gotten a hold of himself, as Vivekananda proclaims in jitendra's quote of the day, and faced the country with full responsibility for his actions, he would have been perceived a stronger man and would have been judged by his courage to stand alone instead of later being judged as a liar and hiding behind his family and friends who protected him and beleived in him. for such a little mistake, his true demeanor exploded and people now perceived him as a coward. by not assuming responsibility for even the smallest action, one can damage his entire past and future perception. as jitednra's inspring philospher says, "but be a man, stand up, lay the blame on yourself." people will respect you and judge you as a man of valour, for the man that has not failed is a man that has not lived.........MacVegan original

If only George W. Bush would show such eagerness for his battles with the truth, American soldiers might not be dying at all right now. When it comes to Iraqi ambushes of Americans in Iraq, Bush says "Bring them on," but when it comes to the American public asking questions about the so-called evidence used to persuade the country to go to war, Bush can only say, "Go away!"

Bush lied when he told the American people that he had clear evidence that the Iraqi government had restarted its nuclear weapons program. It turns out that no such evidence exists.

Bush lied when he said that he had absolute proof that the Iraqi government had massive stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons. It turns out that the Bush Administration was just making what they thought was their best guess, based on outdated information and hearsay.

Bush lied when he said that American intelligence agencies knew exactly where Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were. Months have passed since hundreds of thousands of American soldiers have occupied Iraq, and still, they haven't found any evidence of weapons of mass destruction at all.

Bush lied. People died.

You'd think that with such a controversy on his hands, a tough guy like George W. Bush would want to clear things up right away. You'd think he'd want to take on his critics with a clear debate on the substance of the growing scandal. You'd think that he'd be consistent.

The funny thing is that when it comes to his "evidence", Bush seems to be playing games with the American public, doing whatever he can to keep from having to reveal the whole truth. He says that the case is closed and that everyone should just forget about it all, go home, and wave their flags for him.

Hans Blix and his international team of weapons inspectors have offered to go into Iraq and help Bush look for any evidence of weapons of mass destruction. Oddly, Bush not only declined the offer, but he forbade Blix and his team from conducting weapons inspections in American-occupied Iraq. Even Saddam Hussein didn't refuse to allow weapons inspectors into Iraq. Why is Bush doing so now?

Harry S. Truman famously proclaimed, "The buck stops here." Truman took responsibility for everything that happened under his watch. Not so with George W. Bush. Bush doesn't seem to care where the buck stops, so long as it's with somebody else.

Confronted with evidence that he lied in his State of the Union Address, Bush was quick to pin the blame on somebody else. He blamed George Tenet, director of the CIA. Like a good soldier, Tenet fell on his sword and said it was all his fault for not telling the President that the evidence for an Iraqi nuclear weapons program was shoddy.

Oops. Two days later, the American public found out that George Tenet really DID tell the Bush Administration about the unreliable nature of the evidence for an Iraqi nuclear weapons program. George Tenet warned Bush way back in October, three months before the State of the Union Address!

Never the one to accept responsibility, Bush has now pinned the blame on British intelligence sources. Bush says that his statement in the State of Union Address was "technically correct" because he said that he was relying on British soldiers. Thus, Bush stabs Tony Blair in the back after receiving years of unwavering support from Blair. With Bush, the buck always stops somewhere else.

Every day, there are new revelations of deception and manipulation about Iraq from the Bush White House. Every day, more Americans are calling for open, independent investigations into the extent of the fabrication of evidence by the Bush Administration.

Faced with such alarming allegations, an honest and courageous President would open himself up to scrutiny. An honest and courageous President would tell the truth, the whole truth. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that Bush is ready to be an honest and courageous President. It seems that when his own skin is on the line, Bush isn't so tough.

Enough is enough! We've had it with Bush lies and half-truths. We've had it with Bush's lawyerly evasions of important questions. We think it's time that Bush get as tough with himself as he likes to get with other people.

Open, independent investigations? Bring them on!.....................................................MacVegan takes full responsibility for posting this article from the "Irregular Times"
