Bush’s “Bleedership” on Middle East Conflict

President Bush indicated his support for negotiated draft U.N. Security Council resolution that would provide a cessation of violence nearly a month after Israel’s incitement of all out war. The resolution calls for several phases of operation and outlines key principles for a “lasting peace”.

When comparing the final product to the demands from world leaders Day 1 of the conflict, the differences seem small. Both have issues to be worked out later that if not skillfully handled would jeopardize any fragile cease fire.

The Bush team’s knuckle dragging on this issue can only be described as insensitive, uncaring, not the least bit compassionate. For the second time President Bush endorsed a policy of changing the Middle East via violence, death and destruction. For this I award Mr. Bush the title of “World Bleeder”. His “Bloody Leadership” can also be summed up as “Bleedership”.

It is ironic that his summer reading list contains “Polio: An American Story”. The book highlights the contributions of Jonas Salk, the man who discovered the polio vaccine. Will a man who healed by preventing deaths and deformities be able to teach anything to a “World Bleeder” who causes deaths and disabilities?
