Brilliant

Not all that often, but occasionally Dubya will do something right (not right as versus left, but right as correct). Here is one instance.

President Bush rejected Lebanon's calls for a cease-fire in escalating Mideast
violence on Friday, saying only that Israel should try to limit civilian
casualties as it steps up attacks on its neighbor.
"The president is not
going to make military decisions for Israel," White House spokesman Tony Snow
said.


There is quite a mess on Dubya's plate at the moment. He really doesn't need to get involved in any Israeli - Arab conflicts. That has been the problem of the U.S. for years. When one people has as its sole mission the eradication of the other, the reality is that peace isn't going to happen. If it was up to the Arabs, Israel would look like Palestine on the map. Ol' BC has looked at the last several revisions of the world map and has yet to be able to point to Palestine. Yet for some reason, the U.S. has tried to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Israel has the wherewithall to handle the situation over there were the U.S. to get out of its way. The Arabs have never has any interest in peace. Never will. All they want is for Israel to be erased from the face of the earth. The big dog of Iran reiterated that recently.

Just an observation.
