A Warmonger, U.S. 41st President George H.W. Bush, who was behind the destruction of prospering Iraq, died on Friday at 94, his family announced.
“Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died,” his son, former president George W. Bush, said in a statement released on Twitter by a family spokesperson.
“George H.W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for.”
Bush’s passing comes just months after the death in April of his wife and revered first lady Barbara Bush — his “most beloved woman in the world” — to whom he was married for 73 years.
He is survived by his five children and 17 grandchildren.
Funeral arrangements will be announced in due course, the spokesperson said.
Bush was a decorated war pilot and former CIA chief was a one-term President; he was denied a second term over a weak economy when he lost the 1992 election to upstart Democrat Bill Clinton.
