Israel's STATE SHIT has outwitted George W. Bush long enough

Our beloved President, showing his true mettle as both intellectual and leader ("mettle," by the way, means "Inherent quality of character and temperament") procalims to the world Syria should press Hizbollah to "stop doing this shit," and then says that "I think Condi is going to go pretty soon."

There are at least THREE remarkable, and yet, Oh, so predictable revelations here.

The FIRST revelation is that the President has thoroughly bought into the logical fallacy of "after this, therefore because of this," a logical fallacy, perpetuated in US discourse for 39 years now:

The logical fallacy is that the VICTIMS of Israel's war of aggression and subsequent occupation who, when they rise in desperation to do what little they can to resist, are the ones who are "doing this SHIT." Granted, Hizbollah created the current excuse for Israel's SHIT. But why is the President so incabable (because he's an American?) of remembering that:

1) The hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who live in Southern Lebanon and want to go home are there because of ISRAEL'S SHIT IN THE WAR OF 1948
2) Hizbollah was founded as a reaction to the Israeli occupation of Southern Lebanon in the 1980s, not the other way around
3) Israel's continued occupation of the West Bank and Gaza is the SHIT that keeps the people of the region who live under Israel's terror and subjugation (and their friends elsewhere) in a state of defiance and agitation.

So it is never "after this, therefore because of this" unless the President can go all the way back to the beginning and remember what the Palestinians refer to as "THE CATASTROPHE" (the expulsion from their homes by Israeli SHIT of perhaps as many as a half-million Palestinians) in 1948. That is the "this" after which all else in the region is "because of."

The SECOND revelation about George W. Bush is that he is not in command. He "thinks" Condi will go to the Israel/Lebanon/Palestine "pretty soon." Doesn't he KNOW? Who does KNOW? Does he have to ask Dick Cheney and James Dobson and Pat Robertson and Benjamin Netanyahu for permission? Who is in charge of US foreign policy, anyway? And when is "pretty soon?" After Lebanon is completely destroyed? After every civilian in Gaza is begging for food, dying of thirst, and living on the streets because all of their houses have been bombed or bulldozed?

HE THINKS CONDI WILL GO THERE PRETTY SOON. What is this shit, Mr. President? Why don't you know?

The THIRD revelation is mainly for evangelical christians who think this country needs to revert to some mythological age when our leaders were moral men because they were Christians. One of the best-kept secrets in Washington is George W. Bush's penchant for foul-mouthed and mean-spirited utterances. If pseudo-christians think it's OK for their causes to be led by a man who apparently disregards basic standards of decency in his speech, then it's time they read their Bibles:

"But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a man" (Matthew 15:18---words of Jesus). The President speaks SHIT, so SHIT must be what's in his heart.
