Bush's Response to Hamas attacking Israel

Saturday, January 3, 2009

It appears that the U.S. is getting closer and closer to it's third consecutive war, now with Palestine. Knowing the record of President Bush, it looks like he may succeed again. Hopefully the Congress will be allot smarter this time and not agree with the President to put troops in Gaza to try and secure peace there. Israel needs to find its own way to secure a peace fire. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is calling for a "durable and sustainable" cease-fire, but in this situation, it may be that words alone are not what it will take to stop the conflict.
It is true that America leads the way to fight terrorism, while President Bush claims "Since Hamas' violent takeover in the summer of 2007, living conditions have worsened for Palestinians in Gaza. By spending its resources on rocket launchers instead of roads and schools, Hamas has demonstrated that it has no intention of serving the Palestinian people." says Bush. Bush says by his actions, Hamas is supporting terrorism. So as expected, President Bush supports Israel, as he probably should, but if other countries agree now to fight against Israel, the United States may be obligated to enter the conflict, thus bringing soldiers in harms way once again.
If Hamas did what President Bush calls a "violent takeover in 2007" then why did President Bush allow such an incident to happen in Gaza? Why didn't the intelligence tell President Bush that the Palestinians were setting up to attack Israel? Did he think that Israel would not retaliate when Hamas used the rocket launchers? What communication did President Bush have with the Palestinians before the conflict went in full force, or with Israel for that matter? So many questions left unanswered, but nevertheless, now President Bush feels the need to be a peacemaker.
Is Bush setting up Obama in what he may think could ruin the reputation of Obama? Surely he wouldn't be thinking that. Obama has to sit on the sidelines just a few weeks before his Presidency and watch President Bush do his job again.
President-Elect Barack Obama may just be inheriting his third conflict from President Bush. President Bush now walks away from the responsibilities of the wars in which he started, and Barack Obama, who is almost considered a savior of the American people, is expected to perform a miracle, because the American people expect that of him. And you just know that after just four years in office, he probably will succeed, eliminating troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. If Barack can accomplish this with solving the economic crises using his stimulus plan, a second term would be guaranteed for a President who should hold one of the highest approval ratings of all time for an incumbent President seeking his second term.
Now suddenly the job of Secretary of State doesn't look so good to Hilary Clinton. It appears that she will have a few first class tickets waiting for her, with destinations in Israel or Gaza, Iraq, Afghanistan, and possibly Iran. Not what you would call a so called first class vacation. But with her temperament and knowledge of foreign policy, she will compliment Barack in his will to sustain peace throughout the world. Almost a perfect marriage between two people who were such fierce competitors during the Presidential campaign.
