Hey Palestine, Lebanon and all y'all Islamic and Arab type people.
Israel's got my back over there ya see. Were thick like that. Ain't nothing like a full blown regional war to drive up that oil price, baby.
Lebanon's Saniora wants me to help diplomatically? I don't do diplomacy, sorry. I'm a war president, boy.
This is the only finger I will be raising on your behalf, but I will offer a little lipservice about not killing too many innocent people.
Burn baby Burn, Bush shrugs off call for help from Lebanese government he said he hoped Israel's attack would not topple.

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) - President Bush rejected Lebanon's calls for a cease-fire in escalating Mideast violence on Friday, saying only that Israel should try to limit civilian casualties as it steps up attacks on its neighbor.
"The president is not going to make military decisions for Israel," White House spokesman Tony Snow said.
Lebanon's prime minister asked Bush, during a phone call Friday, to pressure Israel for a cease-fire. But Bush told Prime Minister Fuad Saniora that Israelis have a right to protect themselves.
"We think it's important that, in doing that, they try to limit as much as possible the so-called collateral damage, not only on civilians but also on human lives," Snow said.
It is unlikely that either or both parties are going to agree to" a cease-fire at this point, Snow said.
