Uhuru Kenyatta mourns former U.S. president George H.W Bush

George H.W. Bush, former president and WGHOF member, dies at 94

Editorial cartoonist Marshall Ramsey of the Clarion Ledger shows Bush flying his TBM Avenger, the same plane he flew in the Navy during World War II, flying up into the clouds to join his wife who passed away in April and their young daughter who passed away from Leukemia at age 3 in 1953.

George H W Bush also defended his country's atrocity against Iranian civilians at the United Nations by arguing that the U.S. attack had been a wartime incident and that the crew of the Vincennes had acted appropriately to the situation.

Bush died at age 94 yesterday, his family has announced.

Since the news broke, eulogies have poured out for the former president, from his family, fellow politicians, and the grieving public.

Democratic political strategist Donna Brazile tweeted: "President George H.W. Bush was the real deal".

Trump and China Called a Truce in the Trade War. Now What?
Here's the conundrum for Xi: Trump is right about many trade abuses, a problem other Chinese trading partners also complain about. The declaration said the multilateral trading system is now falling short of its objectives and there is room for improvement.

"Many of my memories are linked to him".

Americans' hearts "are heavy today", Obama said, but they "are also filled with gratitude", adding that "our thoughts are with the entire Bush family" and also all who "were inspired by George and Barbara's example". "I'm not an apologize-for-America kind of guy". The result was the end of the Cold War and the arms race... "He was, quite simply, one of the most deep-down decent people I have ever known", Major told the BBC.

The Clintons, in a statement issued on Saturday, said Bush's extensive record of public service was rare, with his years in the military, in Congress, the United Nations, China, the Central Intelligence Agency, and as vice president and president. "God bless the Bush family at this sad time". It is truly admirable to have lived over 94 years.

"George H.W. Bush´s life is a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling. I commend your parents for encouraging their children, including you my dear friend, to devote yourselves to the service of others". He supported it from the beginning without reservations.

Canadians are also paying tribute to Bush, who developed a close relationship with former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, working to help eliminate acid rain and putting together the original NAFTA. "Receiving "Bush 41" & his wonderful wife Barbara at No10 was a huge honour that I will never forget". He was a very good man, a great President & a warm hearted, generous American patriot who was a strong ally & friend of the UK.
