WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama accused President Bush on Thursday of launching a "false political attack" with a comment about appeasing dictators.
Well Barak, if the shoe fits, wear it. What exactly did President Bush say?
In a speech to Israel's Knesset, Bush said: "Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along.
"We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."

The Israelis aren’t stupid. You don’t live to be 60 and face what they’ve had to face from the minute of their birth without a keen sense of who their friends are. And when the Israelis see their mortal enemy Hamas embracing Obama’s candidacy, they might be wondering who this fellow is and just what does he have in store for Israel if he gets elected.
Gee, ya think? More to the point, if the Israelis see that they're about to be sold down the river by America, they're going to do whatever they have to do in order to make sure they survive. And if that means nuking Iran, they'll do it. The one and only thing holding back much of the Middle East from attacking Israel is the knowledge that if they attack, the USA will be there to beat them back. What happens if that threat, real or perceived, is gone?
World War Three.
