Lebanon burns to the ground and Bush quips, "What they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit and it's over."
As if he hadn't seen the pictures of mass destruction inside of Lebanon itself which are being plastered all over the news networks. Most of what was caught by the open mic was uninteresting, though at one point Bush seemed to show disdain for Kofi Annan's plan for a ceasefire by all parties and by inference seemed to imply that only that Hezbollah stop it's rockets whilst Israel continues to bomb Lebanon back to the stone age. Before Blair realized the mic was live and turned it off, Bush also mentioned that Condoleeza Rice would soon be dispatched to the area. Undoubtedly the entire Neocon cabal is huddling with its collective heads together, hatching a plan to somehow get the U.S. in position to attack Iran over this conflict.
