I just have to say something - I was just on a website where people were bemoaning the fact that George W. Bush doesn't demand that Israel stop pounding Lebanon.
Funny thing is, like, 5 minutes ago it seemed like everyone was bitching because George W. Bush DID take steps to intervene and prevent Saddam Hussein from continuing the wholesale slaughter of the nomadic peoples of northern Iraq, scores of thousands of whom were murdered by Hussein and dumped in mass graves.
DO intervene. DON'T intervene. Love him or hate him, it seems to me George W. Bush is in a lose/lose situation because some people have made up their mind to find fault with him no matter what he does. I'd appreciate if they'd at least be honest about that, but I don't think they are capable.
Thank God for men with the balls to keep their own counsel and follow their own inner guides rather than being swayed the heady winds of popular opinion, of whom there are scarce few to be found among the ranks of our elected leaders.
Furthermore, the woman in this video clip (please click) has pegged the situation. Not just Iraq. Not just Israel/Lebanon & F-A, but the general malaise that has plagued us this entire century.
