World: Israel and Peace

The only good thing about this story is that The Man With The Reverse Midas Touch basically shit all over his own legacy, and as Steve Gilliard used to say, you can't unshit the bed.

Now that Mr. 28 Per Cent needs a legacy (other, that is, than eight years of the worst misadministration and destruction of the United States of America), he's been sending his hunchmen and women flying around the globe looking for something that's not covered with the foul effluent of his and Cheney's eight years of lies, thievery, thuggery, crookedness, deceit, maladroitness, perversion, immorality, cruelty, mendacity, and exploitativeness ad nauseam.

Try as they might, they've failed to find a single thing that they can leave as the Idiot Boy's legacy. A single positive thing, that is. And now, to find that he's fucked up his own hopes of a Mid-East peace agreement, well, what can we say? Tears of joy, children, tears of joy. And bitterness, too. All our lives since we were sprog we've heard about and hoped for peace in the Middle East. But for an incompetent crook to think he can just snap his fingers and have it be so, well, it's good to see him skewered on his own stupidity. Hoist, as it were, on his own petard. And given that he's Le Petomaniacal in his petardaciousness, it's only too fitting.

Because here's what the Israelis are saying. Chimpy McTurdibus personally delivered a letter to Ariel Sharon giving
[...] the Jewish state permission to expand the West Bank settlements that it hopes to retain in a final peace deal, even though Bush's peace plan officially calls for a freeze of Israeli settlements across Palestinian territories on the West Bank. In an interview this week, Sharon's chief of staff, Dov Weissglas, said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reaffirmed this understanding in a secret agreement reached between Israel and the United States in the spring of 2005, just before Israel withdrew from Gaza.

U.S. officials say no such agreement exists, and in recent months Rice has publicly criticized even settlement expansion on the outskirts of Jerusalem, which Israel does not officially count as settlements.
Whom do you believe? The administration, which has told nearly one thousand lies about the Iraq war alone? Or the Israeli government, which may or may not lie but is unlikely to do so if it would embarrass their chief source of financial aid?

The article adds this nice little zinger from the then-ambassador to Israel:
Daniel Kurtzer, then the U.S. ambassador to Israel, said he argued at the time against accepting the Weissglas letter. "I thought it was a really bad idea," he said. "It would legitimize the settlements, and it gave them a blank check." In the end, Kurtzer said the White House never followed up with the plan to define construction lines. "Washington lost interest in it when it became clear it would not be easy to do," he said.
Sounds like the frat schmuck in chief, alright. Got bored with Afghanistan because we would need a detailed plan to take out Osama bin Laden, so here we are seven years later &mdash no Osama, increasing problems in Afghanistan. Got bored with New Orleans, so nearly three years later housing still hasn't been rebuilt, and NOLAians are still scattered all over the fifty states. Got bored with Iraq so five years later diplomats are refusing to serve in Baghdad, the city is an open sewer, concrete walls and ethnic cleansing everywhere, an Iraqi army that sees defection by the thousands, and 4,050 lives (U.S. military), ~1 million lives (Iraqi) and unknown numbers of dead contractors and U.S. civilian personnel and veterans who have committed suicide.

Who let this idiot near the controls? We did. Do we want four more years of this type of disastrous shenanigans? The economy in the toilet, shrinking lifespans for women, no health care for children, joblessness growing, rising crime, increasing poverty, a failing infrastructure, burdensome debt, and a world at war?

That's your legacy, Chimpenfuhrer. And, make no mistake, John McSame's job is to continue that legacy. And Hillary Clinton's, according to whispers throughout the blogosphere, is to ensure that McSame is elected.

Who you gonna vote for? Because Hillary will never beat McSame, and her only mission appears to be to damage the only candidate who can bring real change. Think carefully before you choose. Remember, the fate of your children, your neighbours, your nation, and your world is in your hands.

What a perfect LOLcat for the dying days of Bushistan.

Ain't it, though? I can't believe the evil little sod (Bush, not the LOLcat) pissed away a trillion dollar surplus and then some. This financial implosion will cost about a trillion. If he hadn't started his pathetic war, we'd be able to at least ride out the economic disaster the little schmuck created.

Oy, gevalt, oy vey is mir.
