DEMOCRATS PRESS BUSH TO TAKE MORE DIRECT ROLE IN MIDDLE EAST




Democratic lawmakers in the U.S. pressed President George W. Bush to involve the U.S. more directly in trying to negotiate a halt in fighting between Israel and Hezbollal militants in Lebanon.

...Condi Rice ought to be going to the area immediately," Senator Christopher Dodd, a Connecticut Democrat, said of the U.S. secretary of State today on Fox News Sunday. ...This is a situation that could spin out of control."

The U.S. is continuing to rely on the efforts of a United Nations mission and those governments in the region to begin negotiations, and Rice said she is ready to make a trip to the region to prod along negotiations....when I believe I can make a difference."

...Simply going in and shuttling back and forth, if you don't know where you're trying to go; is not going to help," she said in a seperate interview on the Fox program.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers agreed that Israel is justified in striking at Hezbollah militants, who kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid and have fired missiles into Israeli towns. In response to the abductions, Israel has conducted dozens of air strikes in Lebanon.

...Any country, particularly Israel, has the right to defend itself and to protect its citizens as we do," Republican Senator George Allen of Virginia said in the Fox interview.

THIRD WORLD WAR

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Republican, said the current conflict involves more than just the question of Israel's survival.

...We're in the early stages of what I would describe as a third world war," Gingrich said on NBC's Meet the Press. He cited the connections between Hezbollah extremists and Iran and Syria, terrorists attacks on the U.S. and its allies, the fighting in Afghanastan and Iraq and the confrontation with North Korea.

***And what is the one single thread that binds this altogether? THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION!

...If you take all the countries I just listed, that you've been covering, put them on a map, look at all the different connectivity, you'd have to say to yourself this is, in fact, World War III," Gingrich said.

Democrats, including Dodd, Senator Diane Feinstein of California and Madeleine Albright, secretary of State's under President Bill Clinton, said the Bush administration should be trying to bring Lebanon's government into efforts to suppress Hezbollah and put negotiations to establish a Palestinian state back on track.

***Haven't you noticed how the Bush administration let's certain things slide until they need them for political gain? Bush could have tried to get Lebanon to suppress Hezbollah a long time ago if Bush was truly against terrorism!

...There has been a major diplomatic initiative," Albright said on ABC's 'This Week' program. ...I frankly was waiting for Secretary Rice to say she was going to the Middle East."

***Why? Bush is looking forward to all of this destabilization in the Middle East. That's what this administration lives for! It complimants his so-called "war on terror."


ENGAGING

Dodd criticizes the current administration for viewing diplomacy as a 'four letter word.'

...We have missed, over the last number of years, the ability to engage parties in the Middle East," said dodd. ...I can't think of another time in my career in public service when we've been in as much trouble as we are today."

***Once again......Thanks to the Bush administration. This is part of Bush and Cheney's perpetual war plan. Something that they "did" plan for!

Republican Senator Trent Lott of Mississippi agreed that there was a need for 'hands on diplomacy.' At some point, I would suspect that high-level people would be going in there. Some are already going in, Lott said on CNN's "Late Edition" program.

***Don't let this guy fool you! He talks a good talk but is behind Bush 100%!

A White House spokesman said the president has not decided against sending an envoy to the region.

"The president will never rule out that type of action," said Dan Bartlett, counselor to the president.

"We all want the violence to stop," Bartlett said on the CNN program. "If that could be achieved by the president sending an enovy, I'm sure he would do that."

Eight people were killed and 20 injured in Haifa, Israel's third-largest city, by rocket-fire from Hezbollah on the fifth day of the conflict. Israel said said 24 people have been killed in missile attacks following Hezbollah's kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers and killing eight other soldiers. At least 110 Lebanese civilians, three soldiers and two Hezbollah fighters have been killed.
