Israeli Leaders Fault Bush on War

From Robert Parry, a real journalist.

Amid the political and diplomatic fallout from Israel’s faltering invasion of Lebanon, some Israeli officials are privately blaming President George W. Bush for egging Prime Minister Ehud Olmert into the ill-conceived military adventure against the Hezbollah militia in south Lebanon.
As part of Bush’s determination to create a “new Middle East” – one that is more amenable to U.S. policies and desires – Bush even urged Israel to attack Syria, but the Olmert government refused to go that far, according to Israeli sources.

One source said some Israeli officials thought Bush’s attack-Syria idea was “nuts” since much of the world would have seen the bombing campaign as overt aggression.

obviously i don't think that any of this is true, but i will say that i partially blame the Bush admin. for the cease fire. I think it was a huge mistake for the Isreali's to agree with it, and i think Bush/Rice had a lot to do with that.

Gary, go on, my son! This is exactly the point I was trying to make on The Aurora.

As bellicose as he can get, Ohmert and even Sharon would fit snugly in the LEFT WING of today's US Democratic Party taking their policies as a whole.

Parry has been great on this all along.
