Not suitable for post-prandial consumption

The Bush administration is rushing a delivery of precision-guided bombs to Israel, which requested the expedited shipment last week after beginning its air campaign against Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, American officials said Friday.

The decision to quickly ship the weapons to Israel was made with relatively little debate within the Bush administration, the officials said. Its disclosure threatens to anger Arab governments and others because of the appearance that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign in a way that could be compared to Iran’s efforts to arm and resupply Hezbollah.

The munitions that the United States is sending to Israel are part of a multimillion-dollar arms sale package approved last year that Israel is able to draw on as needed, the officials said. But Israel’s request for expedited delivery of the satellite and laser-guided bombs was described as unusual by some military officers, and as an indication that Israel still had a long list of targets in Lebanon to strike.
This might be the perfect reference next time some idiot asks, "Why do they hate us?"



"oh-and-by-the-way" these weapons would also allow israel to simulaneously preemmptively defend itself against iran should-the-need-arise. israel being the most-righteous-avenger here.

frighteningly, the MRA for venezuela would be colombia.

And as if in thanks, Israel bombs the U.N., fulfilling Ambassador Bolton's fond fantasy. And look , it also keeps those pesky facts from coming out -- another Bushite fetish.

UN target, red cross target, balance of responsibility - pish - zero tolerance means never having to say you're sorry.

They're not really interested in an answer. Theirs is the affected puzzlement of thugs who like adding insult to injury, but are too chickenshit to come out and say it.

Sadly, our fate is similar to those of the supposed smart bombs, we're all going into peril and destruction despite our supposed advancement and blogging.

By the way, this last post seems rather deterministic, eh, Mister T?

If the Islamic forces laid down their weapons, there would be peace in the region.

If the Israeli forces laid down their weapons, there would be no more Israel.
