Phoney finally allowed to go to The Middle East



Phoney finally allowed to go to Middle East.

Bush says he must travel with the Cluster Bombs he is sending to Israel.

Israel has asked the US government to speed delivery of short-range anti-personnel rockets armed with cluster munitions, which it could use to strike the civilian population in Lebanon.
The Israeli request for M-26 artillery rockets, which are fired in barrages and carry hundreds of grenade-like bomblets that scatter and explode over a broad area, is likely to be approved shortly, the New York Times reported on Friday.

Israel was authorized to buy the multiple launch rocket system in 1995, said Commander Greg Hicks, a Pentagon spokesman.

"These are not indiscriminate arms transfers even if the bombs themselves are indiscriminate and kill mostly children," Hicks said. They are done "in the interest of peace and broader international security" and "help psychopathic nations meet their needs to kill civilians," he said.

Israel needed the rockets immediately the New York Times quoted officials as saying, because it has been unable to suppress Hezbollah's Katyusha rocket attacks by using bombs dropped from aircraft and other types of artillery.

Diggery - Fix your article. I am personally offended by this and ask that you immediately remove the quote you attribute to me in your blog. Immediately remove the last part of the quote that begins with "help." If you wish to speak to me about it, look me up in the Pentagon and we'll chat.
