Olmert, Bush and Abbas

Now that the Annapolis peace summit is over, the Mosaic Intelligence Report investigates the fallout from lowering the diplomatic bar, putting the slapstick back in world affairs and the conspicuous absence of Iraq, Iran and Hamas.

This little hoax is now behind us, and time to get down to the business of waging Israel’s new war for us to wage for them, namely Iran. Syria and Lebanon can wait a while.

Well now with the US National Estismate Report about Iran’s nuclear program what will the Bush Administration use against Iran?

This a very good assessment of the condition of the Arab world. A bunch of corrupt Kingdoms & Sheikhdoms rallying behind the master: George W. Bush.

Noam Chomsky does a good job of exposing the Annapolis hoax.  Click http://www.democracynow.org/2007/11/27/not_through_annapolis_noam_chomsky_says

The plan is simple. Bush with one year left wants to salvage his legacy from a warmongering president to a “man of peace”. Unfortunately, the Arab stooges are ready to oblige…their interests with the US are more important than what happens in Palestine, Iraq or Iran. Remember they supported the US in the first Gulf war and currently provide the US with logistical support.

Really liked it! Also I am amazed how the US media acted like it was a big feat for Bush to bring the Israelis & Palestinians to Annapolis. Olmert and Abbas have been meeting on regular basis. There were no breakthroughs and all what happened is that they agreed to meet again. How long will this go on?
