In what some call the epic of “Freudianism”, former President George W. Bush accidentally called the invasion of Iraq “Completely unjustified and harsh” when it comes to Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Bush made a startling mistake in his speech at his presidential center in Dallas, where he spoke about the importance of fair elections and overthrew Russia’s autocratic system.

“The result is a lack of checks and balances in Russia, as well as one man’s decision to launch a completely unwarranted and brutal invasion of Iraq,” Bush said before shaking his head and recovering. “I mean Ukraine.”

As the audience fell into awkward silence, Bush muttered to himself what sounded like the words, “Anyway, Iraq, too,” causing laughter in the crowd.

“I’m 75,” Bush added quickly, blaming his senior year and causing further laughter in the crowd.

Critics have called America’s preemptive invasion of Iraq in 2003, ordered by Bush, both unjustified and brutal, and this is widely seen as a serious stain on his presidency.

The war was based on the claim that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, although no WMD stockpiles or programs were ever discovered.

The Bush administration’s claims that Hussein had an operational relationship with al Qaeda also turned out to be false.

U.S. involvement in the Iraq war dragged on until 2011, and 4,825 coalition soldiers were killed. Many tens of thousands of Iraqis died when the conflict escalated into an uprising and a bloody civil war.

Bush’s remarks immediately drew ridicule from his critics, who rushed to agree with his accidental assessment of the Iraq war.

“At least he finally admits that the invasion of Iraq was unjustified,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Perhaps the most significant fraudulent mistake in the history of the Republican Party,” said another.

“I was just wondering how the 20th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq will be covered next year. Good, ”another wrote.

‘Strange mistake. Bush admitted for a split second that the invasion of Iraq was completely fake, ”another wrote on Twitter.

Speaking at an event on Wednesday to build confidence in elections and democracy, Bush offered his broadest public statements on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

He called Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky a “cool little guy” and a “Churchill of the 21st century.”

Bush said Zelensky, whom he met almost earlier this month, had “legitimacy” after winning Ukraine’s election, adding: “and now he is heroically leading his nation against Russian invaders.”

“In contrast, the election in Russia was rigged. Political opponents are imprisoned or otherwise eliminated, ”he added.

“The way countries conduct elections shows how their leaders treat their own people and how nations treat other nations,” Bush said. “And nowhere is it more pronounced than in Ukraine.”

“There is nothing more important than elections in a democratic country,” he said.

“It’s really important, and we have to stay true to our principles by holding free and fair elections,” Bush said.
