I'm afraid George W. would have to look up 'generosity' in a dictionary. And I wouldn't be sure he's ever heard of Ghandi or Mandela.
Since he only ever seems to read his bible, if anything, he'll always reamain a straightforward an-eye-for-an-eye-man.
Goerge W. and the age-old Western initiators of aggression and conquest in the Middle East are possessed by an intractible "religion" far more oblivious to the concept of "generosity" than would be a simple eye-for-an-eye "religion."
For an introductory guide, peruse the current U.S. domestic policy.
'Age-old Western initiators of aggression and conquest in the Middle East' sounds a little bit religiously simplistic either ...
Note that "Religiously" is placed in quotes to indicate imperialism and religion both pretending to be religious.
