Perhaps President Bush, the brilliant, ethical American leader of the War on Terrorism, should consider--being that he is dismayed by Palestinians' importing arms into the occupied territories--declaring to the world that the U.S. will observe a moratorium on arms and munitions shipments to Israel if the Palestinians will also abide by such a moratorium. Lacking such reciprocity the brilliance of our President's pronouncements may appear, to some, tarnished.
On the other hand, of course, President Bush's concern for the victims of his "former" number one booster and pal Ken Lay, are unquestionably sincere. Bush had nothing to do with assuring Mr. Lay's energy deregulation agenda. Right?
