As Middle East Teeters, Bush Goes On Vacation

Your imbecilic Bush foreign policy in action:

Hundreds of thousands of Shiites chanting "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" marched through the streets of Baghdad's biggest Shiite district Friday in a show of support for Hezbollah militants battling Israeli troops in Lebanon.

The demonstration was the biggest in the Middle East in support of Hezbollah since the Israeli army launched an offensive July 12 after a guerrilla raid on northern Israel. The protest was organized by radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose political movement built around the Mahdi Army militia has been modeled after Hezbollah.

And the IDF continues to destroy the Lebanese infrastructure and kill innocent Lebanese today with Bush’s full blessing:

Israeli airstrikes flattened two southern Lebanese residences Friday and more than 50 people were buried in the rubble, security officials and the state news agency said.
The number of dead was not immediately known. One attack flattened a building in Aita al-Shaab, a mile inside Lebanon, Lebanon's National News Agency reported. A large number of civilians were inside at the time, but the exact number was unknown, it said.

An Israeli airstrike hit dozens of farm workers loading vegetables near the Lebanon-Syria border, killing 28, the workers’ foreman and a Lebanese official said.
Five Lebanese civilians were killed and 19 wounded in the Israeli airstrikes north of the capital in Christian areas where Hezbollah has little support or presence, including the picturesque coastal resort of Jounieh.

Yet Bush goes on vacation to clear brush. By the time Condi and Bush are ready to cut a deal this weekend, it will be too late to help us in the region. The damage that was started with Iraq will be done.
