This is one of those days when you need a barf bag handy while reading the newspapers.
“President Bush called for a ‘sustainable peace’ in the Middle East ‘for the sake of children’…”
“For the sake of children?” What will the President tell us next, that when jihadis are hurting, government must move? WFB was right about this guy.From the Daily Telegraph:”His smooth baby skin was mottled purple with bruising and his reddish hair frosted by cement dust, but nine-month-old Abbas Mahmoud Hashem wore a hauntingly peaceful expression when rescue workers reached him yesterday.”
Now look: I like kids as much as the next person (so long as that person isn’t W.C. Fields). HOWEVER: If we think we can win wars without killing any kids, we better get ready to lose a lot of wars.
