Quoting Cfalk (Reply 4): What he said sounded pretty much right on the nail. I just wish he would come out and say it, just the way he said it.
As much as I hate to agree with Bush( ), I do agree with him on this one. It may be a bit of a simplistic way to put it, but I think it's the truth. These days, I don't think Israel is in the business of taking over territory without provocation and if Hamas and Hezbollah would cut out the attacks, I don't think Israel would be attacking them.
If you don't want it known, don't say it on a phone.

Ah, isn't it amazing how microphones you think are off capture something you wish you either didn't say at all or you could retract. Bush's comments do express the frustration of how to deal with the situation as to Israel, Hezbolla, Lebanon, Syria and Iran that is going on right now.

When did the policy change? Are they going to announce it on Fox?
You dont suppose that either Hamas or Hezbollah might have had some little gripe or other about earlier actions of Israel - such as the bombing of Sheik Yassin and a few prisoners kidnapped to Israeli jails? No, thought not.
Nice try at a cheap shot. I wouldn't know since I don't watch television to get my news. And even if I did, I certainly wouldn't be watching Fox. All television "news" is largely fact-free, but from what little I have seen, Fox is even more fact-free than most of the others.

This is one of the most coherent statements ever by GWB. He acutally gives off the appearance of being a person. He apparently isn't very good at press conferences, so his staff should just keep microphones close-by at all times to get his statements...
Good to hear that Bush is aware that it is Iran, Syria and Hezbollah that are the problems here, not Lebanon.
Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.
Well whne he's not being shepparded to say one thing or another by his handlers Bush is actually quite succint on this issue. I am by no means the president of his fan club but he does have a point. You can see Tony was caught a little off guard by GWB saying "shit" but then again you expect that.
Interesting that the female commentator was so distressed by Bush/Blair 'light heartedness' about it but expressed no regret whatever that explosive-tipped missiles were fired from HER country into another nation - an act of war.
And members here disagree with this cartoon or pretend not to get it: The Most Accurate Editorial Cartoon Ever (by EA CO AS Jul 17 2006 in Non Aviation)
She illustrates the point of the cartoon by offering no blame whatever to Hezbollah for the consequences.
