PUT DOWN THE BUTTER KNIFE AND LET'S DO IT OURSELVES:

Bush Curses Hezbollah at G-8 Luncheon (NewsMax, 7/17/06)

It wasn't meant to be overheard. Private luncheon conversations among world leaders, picked up by a microphone, provided a rare window into both banter and substance - including President Bush cursing Hezbollah's attacks against Israel. [...]

"See the irony is that what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this (expletive) and it's over," Bush told Blair as he chewed on a buttered roll.

He told Blair he felt like telling U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who visited the gathered leaders, to get on the phone with Syrian President Bashar Assad to "make something happen."


The war is in Syria, not Lebanon.

Have you noticed something: the inadvertent statements that Bush made on secretly open microphone were always to Bush's advantage?

ic: That's not purposeful, that's just the media not having any clue what appeals to the American people. If Bush was ever overheard saying anything like "You know, murder is regrettable, but we do have to remember that poverty and colonialism have pushed the Arab street into the only methods open to them to protest their dehumanization by an encroaching and rapacious western crusade," the media would bury the news to stop from helping his popularity.
