On Israel's bloody attack on the small Lebanese village of Qana:

"....The Bush Administration’s “hands-off” foreign policy has crashed and burned now, and we are being dragged down the hell hole with Israel as a result of this attack and our enabling of it. The Lebanese have told Condi not to bother returning to Beirut, and they seemingly support a massive Hezbollah retaliation for the bombing as an act of Lebanese self-defense. Once again it is us and the Israelis against the world, and any calls by Bush for democracy and an overarching solution will fall deservedly on uninterested heads of state, who must wonder how the American people can continue to support a callous and craven administration so indifferent to the victims of its policies.

"God damn you Mr. President for what you, yes you have done to this country. You, your satanic Vice President and Secretary of Defense, and your inept Secretary of State have besmirched the integrity and dignity of this country for far too long. I fear that we will all now pay a price for it. With his green light and wink and a nod relationship with Israel, Bush has blood on his hands tonight just as much as the Israelis.

"I spent several minutes tonight looking at the wire service pictures of the victims, and I saw women and young women that were the same ages as my wife and daughter. Yes, the people of Israel suffer this as well, and have for years. But this was a discriminate attack by Israel on this target, using precise weapons and jet fuel provided in part by the Bush Administration, under a green light from this president. I expect much more from the president of the United States than I do from the leader of Hezbollah or the nutcase in Tehran, but after today, George W. Bush has lowered the office of the president to the same nefarious, banana republic level as them.

"Burn in hell Mr. Bush. Your foreign policy team is waiting for you there. No matter how quickly you try and weasel your way away from this and towards a face-saving call for a cease fire, this hangs around your neck, and there is nothing you can do to change that."

Oh, Steve, you forget that Bush can't go to hell. God has already promised him (through personal communication) ringside seats to view the Apocalypse after he rises to heaven during the Rapture. I wonder if they serve popcorn and slurpees?
