Bush
To Call
For End
To Israeli
Airstrikes?


From Atlas Shrugs:


FOX is reporting that Bush will call on Israel to stop the airstrikes. If this is true, Bush has become part of the problem. Effecting dhimmitude will not solve this culture of murder.No country, no "group" firing rockets at civilian cities and towns should be sanctioned. Israel has gone out of their way to fire on military installations, and infrastructure that aids the terrorists. Israel is not shelling at civilians.

President Bush, move away from Condi Rice. Step away from the Arabist tool.

If, in the face of repeated threats and provocation by an aggressive dictatorship, you refuse to go to war, the war will eventually come to you.


What kind of sense does this make?

Check out this quote from John Bolton's speech to the UN just this morning:


All militias in Lebanon, including Hizballah, must disarm and disband immediately and the Lebanese government must extend and exercise its sole and exclusive control over all Lebanese territory.

President Bush has made clear that Syria and Iran must be held to account for supporting regional terrorism and their role in the current crisis. Syria provides safe haven to the militant wing of Hamas and provides material support to Hizballah, which also maintains an active presence in Syria. Iran's extensive sponsorship and financial and other support of Hizballah is well known and has been ongoing for decades. No reckoning with Hizballah will be adequate without a reckoning with its principal state sponsors of terror.

We call on Syria and Iran to cease their sponsorship and support of terrorist groups, in particular Hizballah and Hamas. For the third time in two weeks, we again call on Syria to arrest Hamas leader Khaled Meshal, who currently lives in Damascus. There is no excuse for a member state of the United Nations to continue to knowingly harbor a recognized terrorist.


Why is out government talking out of two sides of its mouth?

If Israel does not solve this problem, will we?
