And now you know

why Bush took so long to get to calling for a cease-fire, why Rice stuck to the "sustainable cease-fire" script through every stop in the Middle East and everywhere else she went, and why the US scurried to fill a rush order by the Israelis for more weaponry and cluster bombs (more on these hideous, immoral weapons in a later post). According to an article in the Monday Guardian, Bush assisted the Israelis in planning the invasion of Lebanon and that Lebanon/Hizbollah is a test run for Iran.

The article references Seymour Hersh's article in this month's issue of the New Yorker:
Quoting a US government consultant, Hersh said: "Earlier this summer ... several Israeli officials visited Washington, separately, 'to get a green light for the bombing operation and to find out how much the United States would bear'."

The Israeli action, current and former government officials told Hersh, chimed with the Bush administration's desire to reduce the threat of possible Hizbullah retaliation against Israel should the US launch a military strike against Iran.

"A successful Israeli Air Force bombing campaign ... could ease Israel's security concerns and also serve as a prelude to a potential American pre-emptive attack to destroy Iran's nuclear installations," sources told Hersh.

Any indictments for war crimes against the Lebanese people need to include Goerge W. Bush and co.
