Bush's gift to the world

An empowered and militarily confident Iran. Thank you George W. Bush, way to fight terror

PRESIDENT Bush’s war on terror has made Iran the most influential power in the Middle East, a report warned yesterday.

It said Iran’s standing had superseded that of the US, following mounting instability in the region.

And it found the Islamic Republic had benefited dramatically by the American-led ousting of its great rivals - Saddam Hussein and the Taliban.

The report warned: “There is little doubt that Iran has been the chief beneficiary of the war on terror in the Middle East. The US, with coalition support, has eliminated two of Iran’s rival governments but has failed to replace either with stable political structures.”

The verdict of respected think-tank Chatham House is an embarrassing blow to President Bush and Tony Blair.

It is highly critical of US meddling in the Middle East and said instability in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as Israel’s failure to defeat Hizbollah, had strengthened Iran’s standing under President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

I agree that is time for the U.S. to stop meddling in the Middle East.
Why do we support Israel.? Their use of our cluster bombs is very bad P.R. for us. Lets cut off the 3 or 4 billion we give Israel, and also the money we give the Arab states.
They seem on a course that includes only death and destruction. Why should we be a part of that.?
Islam and Judaism have shown no ability recently to get along. Should we support either side.? Why would any sane people support people that are religious crackpots.
Israel is a Jewish state. Most of the Arab states support Islam. Why do we as a country support with money and weapons this rats nest of religious bigotry and belief hatreds.?
