US forces invaded Iraq under the George W. Bush administration

Former US President George W. Bush has spoken out against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine. During a speech in Dallas, USA, he erroneously denounced “complete irrational aggression on Iraq” instead of Ukraine.

It was under his administration that, in 2003, U.S. forces invaded Iraq.

The former president’s misunderstanding and blaming for his age led to a shocking silence among the main slip-up audience.

“One man’s decision to launch a completely unjust and brutal invasion of Iraq,” former US President George W. Bush said before taking a moment’s break. “I mean, Ukraine … I’m 75,” Mr. Bush is heard saying in a video that has now gone viral. The audience burst into laughter as he corrected himself.

Some social media users can’t believe what they hear.

“Honestly, the best part is when he shrugged his shoulders and muttered, ‘Well, Iraq, too, under his breath later. That’s a promise to Flub,'” said one Twitter user.

Some have described it as a “Freudian slip for ages.”

One person said the video would be played repeatedly for decades.

Speaking at the event on Wednesday, the former US president said “Russia’s election has been rigged” and that political opponents have been imprisoned or otherwise excluded from the electoral process. He also condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin for invading Ukraine.

During the speech, former President George W. Bush compared Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Winton Churchill.
