    You still don't get it! Bush is an idiot and his neoconservative supporters are idiots. With these people supporting Israel, you need no enemies to get you killed. His open support for Israel has cost him any support from the Arab Middle East and the Islamic world. Our military is tied up in Afghanistan, and in an unnecessary war in Iraq. Israel may feel the blow back from Iraqi trained militants in Lebanon. He has weakened the U.S. generally and the military specifically to give tax breaks to the rich. He has sent our industries and jobs overseas for cheap labor for the multinational corporations. We can no longer be the Arsenal of Democray we were in two World Wars. In a recent poll 57% of Americans didn't want us involved in Lebanon. Lebanon and Syria are all yours to fight or make peace. I will give you the same advice I give my elected representative. Start thinking for a change!
