Sharon, thanking us for reversing decades of US policy and completely backing the policies of the Likud party while obtaining no concessions at all from Israel, has now had Hamas leader Rantisi assassinated. So this will be another “fact on the ground” for us to deal with.
You might remember last month’s Israeli assassination of Yassin — the guy in the wheelchair. That assassination directly triggered the recent events in Iraq, leading to the deaths of 82 American soldiers, and hundreds of Iraqis. THIS assassination is very likely to lead to a further increase in violence in Iraq, and across the Middle East.
We have a President who allows — encourages — these actions by Israel which lead DIRECTLY to increased violence in Iraq and the deaths of ever more American soldiers.
It looks more and more like this President WANTS all-out war in the Middle East.
