Bush's press conference - - commented

Excerpts of Bush's recent joint press conference with Bliar: -- Pure lies and cheap propaganda. And speech handicap.

It's an interesting period because, instead of having foreign policies based upon trying to create a sense of stability, we have a foreign policy that addresses the root causes of violence and instability. -- Yes, Bush's foreign policy is war.

For a while, American foreign policy was just, Let's hope everything is calm — kind of, managed calm. But beneath the surface brewed a lot of resentment and anger that was manifested on September the 11th. -- Propaganda... Putting everyone in the same basket. Hezbollah, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, Iraq have nothing to do with 9/11. Although that anger against the US is being justified by their unconditional support for Israel's military actions in Palestine and now in Lebanon.

In the long term, to defeat this ideology — and they're bound by an ideology — you defeat it with a more hopeful ideology called freedom. -- What? An ideology called freedom?? Freedom is a word. Not an ideology. And let's not get into the freeing of Iraq.

For example, you know, the notion of democracy beginning to emerge scares the ideologues, the totalitarians, those who want to impose their vision. It just frightens them. -- OK, he's talking about democracy in Lebanon and Palestine. Ideologues in Israel. He's right on this one.

And so they respond. They've always been violent. -- Right again, Israel.

There's this kind of almostkind of a weird kind of elitism that says well maybemaybe certain people in certain parts of the world shouldn't be free; maybe it's best just to let them sit in these tyrannical societies. -- I'm sure Iraqis would agree on that one. Not only the elitists, but all Iraq.

They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. -- I think he's still talking about Israel. Wow, he's getting smarter by the minute.

We share the same urgency of trying to stop the violence. That's why Condi Rice went out there very quickly. Her job is to — first and foremost, was to make it clear to the Lebanese people that we wanted to send aid and help, and help work on the corridors necessary to get the aid to the Lebanese people. -- By sending 2.5 billion dollars of military and economic aid to Israel every year, vetoing every UN resolution criticizing Israel, and sending tons of F-16 fuel and new bombs for Israel to continue its war on Lebanon??
