I had been racking my soul for something to be cheerful about in the 
latest Lebanese episode of US sponsored war crimes (apart from the 
silkworm strike on the Ahi-Hanit) when slapstick George forgets to turn 
of his mike at the G8 banquet…

“I’m just going to make it up. I’m not going to talk too damn long like 
the rest of them. Some of these guys talk too long.”

whey hay hay, what you just make it up as you go along, George? I would 
never have guessed it. Do those other boys use too many big confusing words?

“what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this 
shit, and it’s over” offers our politically incisive president. Really, 
I dont know why people get so upset about being occupied, imprisoned, 
economically strangled and assassinated. If they would just quietly 
leave their land and lives behind and just went someplace else where 
they are also not welcome then there just wouldn’t be any problems. Oh 
and if only they’d stop voting for people we don’t like.

Luckily George has more verbose guns like Condi to send in and threaten 
more of the same once the Israelis finish the dirty work. Lickspittle 
Republican functionary Tony Blair helpfully offered “she needs the 
ground prepared as it were …If she goes out she’s got to succeed, as it 
were, whereas I can just go out and talk.” Spoken like a true cringing 
civil servant. Yeah, thanks for that Tony. With ~200 civillians 
slaughtered in 6 days there’s no need to rush.

But fortunately more pressing items strove for precedence in our 
glorious president’s mighty mind.

“I gotta leave by 2:15, they want me out of town so they can free up 
your security forces,” ..and revealing his advanced geographical 
knowledge.. “This is your neighbourhood, doesn’t take you long to get 
home…Russia’s a big country, you’re a big country…Gotta go home. Got 
something to do tonight.”

Presumably something less weighty than trying to figure out why people 
refuse to be crushed under your jackboots.
