CL: "Prehaps what we are seeing is the real legacy of 9/11 after ten years of war the ruling and military elite in Washington has realised the amount of blood spilt by America and her allies on behalf of Israeli policies." It is ironic, isn't it? The biggest act of folly by Sharon was to urge Bush to finish the job his daddy started. Sharon was convinced that 200,000+ US troops in the Middle East would act as a force multiplier for Israel, and he was completely and utterly wrong. The USA is starting to tote up the cost of having those troops held hostage to Israeli greed, and it's really opened their eyes. This simply wouldn't have happened if 200,000 GI's hadn't washed up on the M.E. like beached whales. And the most fervent cheerleaders for the Shrub's little (mis)adventure were the zionists and their fellow travellers, and up front and centre Sharon was waving his pom-pom's with the best of them. Karma. It always getcha', don't it?
