Rockers Blast Bush

System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian and Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder are among the artists speaking out against President Bush in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. “Bush and Cheney and their whole team have been a disaster for the U.S. and the rest of the world,” declares Tankian. “The U.N. has been neutralized as a peaceful solution to conflict. The war in Iraq has become a brutal occupation; our soldiers die not knowing why they were sent there in the first place. We went from a surplus economy to a high deficit. Unemployment is up, the dollar is down, and the environment is weeping. We need someone with a high degree of both intelligence and compassion in the White House, someone deserving of the good will of the American people. Bush and Co. do not deserve us as their public.”
