Another stunt by Bush: dashing off to Baghdad to meet with the prime minister (and no doubt to keep him in line).
I write about Bush’s visit, and his hidden objective to secure permanent military bases there, in my latest web exclusive.
And my colleague Amitabh Pal writes about the depressing news out of Israel and Palestine: Once again Israel has opted for war, and a new cycle of violence appears to be spinning.
The seemingly endless war in Iraq and the seemingly endless war between the Israelis and the Palestinians cause unbearable casualties. And so long as they rage, they fuel hatred against the United States.
There must be a better way.
