Is there a world leader in existence that doesn't want war.

Olmert has his problems but they dwarf to Israels and the worlds. Let me highlight what Bush said in Israel while Egypt is facing such hunger people are killing each other and getting no help from their brethren in this middle east success that is the total failure Bush Guaranteed.

Now in light of the bush family Nazi connections and thanks to Bush the middle east openly allowing countries to fail and guaranteed eruption anyway look what the idiot said in Israel yesterday. President Bush launched a sharp but veiled attack Thursday on Sen. Barack Obama and other Democrats, suggesting they favor "appeasement" of terrorists in the same way some Western leaders appeased Hitler in the run-up to World War II.

The president did not name Obama or any other Democrat, but White House aides privately acknowledged the remarks were aimed at the presidential candidate and others in his party. Former President Jimmy Carter has called for talks with Hamas."Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along," Bush said at Israel's 60th anniversary celebration in Jerusalem. "We have heard this foolish delusion before," Bush said in remarks to Israel's parliament, the Knesset.He's a damn idiot!
"As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."

The remarks seemed to be a not-so-subtle attempt to continue to raise doubts about Obama with Jewish Americans. Those doubts were earlier stoked by Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee in the 2008 presidential election, when he recently charged that Obama is the favored candidate of the Islamic fundamentalist group Hamas, which the U.S. government has listed as a terrorist group.
Obama last week called the Hamas allegation a "smear" and lashed out Thursday at Bush's speech in Israel. "It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 60th anniversary of Israel's independence to launch a false political attack," Obama said in a statement released to CNN by his campaign. "It is time to turn the page on eight years of policies that have strengthened Iran and failed to secure America or our ally Israel….
There will be no peace for Israel or the middle east and as you know Israel's and our problems are just beginning!

I want Olmert to resign. But that said, I've put up the longest post I've ever written about Israel today.

Hey, Betmo, I did a satirical piece on Bush talking to the Knesset. You might get a laugh or two.

Getting a laugh in this world is not that easy anymore.

Talk care now.
