Green Day Slam Bush

GREEN DAY have launched a scathing attack on US President GEORGE W BUSH, labelling his administration the worst in American history.

The BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS hitmakers, who are currently working on the movie version of their album AMERICAN IDIOT, have accused Bush of bungling both the war in Iraq and the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.

Singer/guitarist BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG says, "This is the worst US administration in our history, and disasters like Hurricane Katrina and the war have been so mishandled. It reflects the message of American Idiot, which makes our planned movie more relevant than ever."

For those of you non-Americans:The "American Idiots" whom choose to criticize their country, in this case the USA, it's their God (yes I did say GOD!) given right to do so. However, for those of you NON-AMERICANS who choose to criticize our president and country, go f**k yourself, eat s**t, and DIE bastards!!!! You can only dream of your f**king country having a government such as ours where freedom to critique your government and leadership is your 1st ammendment right, but all you can do is whisper it under the insignificant petty s**t breath that you have, cowards! I dare you to criticize your country's government and leaders the way you have done with ours in public! Let them hear you or read it on your website with your name on it! Are you too chicken s**t to get your tongue cut off? Or, maybe your balls, if you really even have any?!

your both dumbasses, (oh god, I said ass, what will you do)you both provide valid points but you can't automitically assume your both right, democracy is about pissing everyone else off, I'd say Bush is doing a good job at pissing people off, but he doesn't seem to be doing a good job at anything else, just because I don't support Bush doesn't mean I want to force everyone else to think the same as me, that's what hitler did. You f**king fascists

HMMM i thought someone would comment on the movie...which came out Nov 15th and i said didn't come out yet..i had such a good comment..in a good way... Ok your right in somethings..but i don't see how you can talk about our government like you do and then slander all the other countries. Anyone who says that they have liked every president that has been in office is BS. That is why you vote and let your voice be heard. Other wise you would just throw someone in office and say OH SH T I HOPE HE/SHE DOES A GOOD JOB IN THE NEXT 4 YEARS. Other culteres and conteries have come to out aid. I have to say that if you believe in freedom and in the united states of america that you would also have the heart and compassion not to make others feel bad about what their government does or does not do. That does not make you any better then them. It doesn't matter if you are D or R or even I...what matters is what YOU believe in and what you have to say. I do agree that for you to have a say in what goes on you have to vote or you don't have a say in anything. But to put down and say the things you said about others is not right...what makes you any better to stand for OUR government and then slander other people?? The president is more then just one person and one person is not just the "President". I have been a green day fan for a long time and i don't think they are in ANYWAY NOR FORM ANTIAMERICAN...to say that i just wrong...their album (American Idiot) stands for what they believe in...so they don't like bush..ok so that makes them ANTIAMRERICAN?? i mean wtf is that?? To say they are is taking away their right to speak what they think...bush is not doing a good job at running the united states...which in turn makes the government not doing a good job. So people who don't like bush nor thinks the government is doing a good job are ANTIAMERICAN also?? My mother was killed by a drunk driver and the guy served 3 months in jail...and yes i was angry that our government didn't stand up for my mother when she couldn't...so that makes me ANTIAMERICAN also because i don't think the govrnment did what they should have?? NO I DON'T THINK SO....it's called a voice and you have the right to say what you think...because GD came out and said what they thought in public is no different then you getting some paper and putting your words down then putting it up in the closet...you were still able to say what you thought correct?? I am not in anyway trying to be disrespectful i am just saying what i think. and i think you should think twice before saying and or putting other conteries down and saying they NEVER come to our aid because that is not true.
