What's scary is that the Bush administration has been so supportive of Israel doing whatever it wants regardless of the war's damaging implications for virtually every major aspect of American foreign policy. Sometimes you just have to stop and take in the fact that they really do appear to be dangerously clueless.
If you feel like Bush's presidency has resembled an Edgar Allen Poe story, you're not alone. I'm going to go hide in the 7th century for awhile.
