Lebanon

Didn't Georgia see what happened during the Israeli-Lebanese war?

Mr. President,

I turned on CNN and I heard Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili plead for American help the other day.

He is not a dumb guy. He received a degree from Kiev State University (Ukraine) in 1992 And he received a law degree from Columbia Law School in 1994 and took classes in at The George Washington University Law School the following year. So how can he fall for the 'aw shucks' shit you hand out?

Lebanon found out how much your word is worth when their struggling democracy was attacked by Israel and their civilian population and infrastructure were bombed to pieces

So is it any surprise that Georgia was also left hanging as well?


Lebanon found your support for them as empty as our nation's gas tanks are today.

When Israel began bombing civilian targets, and
Prime Minister Fouad Siniora begged for the United States to tell your other ally to stop bombing innocent civilians you responded in the most interesting way.
On 25 July 2006, Condoleezza Rice promised the Lebanese government $30 million in aid for reconstruction, even as the United States was rushing to complete an Israeli order for 4,000 precision-guided bombs to drop on, Lebanon.


Israel suffered a humiliating defeat as Hezbollah managed to not only survive the disproportionate Israeli attack but gained popularity with the people of Lebanon as they, not the United States, came to their rescue.

Ironically Hezbollah's use of Russian-made anti-tank guided missiles were a key weapon system used to destroying or disabling many Israeli Merkava Tanks, the pride of Israel's ground offensive.

This recent war between Russia and Georgia has some similarities with the Isreali Lebanon war.


Russia disproportionate response to Georgia's actions in South Ossatia is much like Israel's and your response to another desperate request for help from a fledgling democracy is similar as well.


Cheney is ready to go to war, because that is all he knows, but who knows where you can get enough ground forces to make a difference. We are in no shape to take on a nuclear power like Russia head on.


Humanitarian aid is all that you can provide other than push the missile bases in Ukraine which will make Russia really happy to leave Georgia.


It is all real reminiscent of your response to Lebanon except Russia won't need to buy any American made precision guided bombs. They have plenty of their own.


Is this a Bush thing?


Your daddy left the Shiites high and dry after he encouraged them to overthrow Saddam Heussein right after he defeated Heussein in the first Gulf War.

Thousands of Shiites were killed when they actually thought Bush Sr. would provide them some kind of support to follow up his words of encouragement.
Boy were they punked!

This whole Georgia thing must not be high on your list.
Condoleeezza Rice your Russian expert did not even interrupt her schedule when the Russians invaded Georgia our ally.

And everyone knew where you were. You were not in a war room conferring with the joint Chief of Staff over the situation.

You were in Bejing yucking it up with the female volley ballplayers and holding the flag upside down and backwards, cheering in the stands. ps Holding the flag upside down means "I'm in distress." And it is possibly the truest symbol of your presidency that you could ever have displayed.

The Russians timed this war perfectly. A dolt still occupied the office of the presidency and Americans were inundated with Olympic news. Fox news did their part by provided nonstop coverage of the John Edward's affair.


And most Americans have shifted their focus from the Iraq and Afghanistan war to the sad state of their personal finances. People are losing their jobs and it seems like every week we see new records are set on the rise in inflation, and homes in foreclosure. Then there are the presidential elections which are in full swing.

All in all this is no big deal folks nothing to see here. Move along!
Of course none of this is keeping you from going on your normal August vacation.
Over the duration of your presidency you have taken 466 days of vacation at your pretend ranch in Crawford Texas and 458 vacation days at Camp David.
Together they add up to a year and a half of vacation during your last seven years and seven months in office.
So everything must be OK, right.
Please please please, can you tell me what drugs you take to make you so detached from reality, because I want a truck load of those things.
By the way tell Fox news to stop harping on John Edward's potential fitness to be our president even though he left the race for the presidency a while ago. Someone might remember that John McCain admitted to cheating on his ailing wife after she was in a car accident and He IS running for president.
