Keep Digging!

"I write in praise of George W Bush. I recognise this may be an eccentric position to hold and an eccentric moment to express it... Much of history's judgment of Bush will turn on Iraq and Afghanistan. This column, in what is certainly a minority position, believes the Iraq operation was the right thing to do on the basis of the information available and Bush was courageous to do it... This President, infinitely more complex than his reviews would suggest, will have a better place in history than most of his critics." (I come to hail the chief, not to bury him: The whole world is absurdly against GW Bush, but history's views will be more balanced, Greg (Jerusalem Prize) Sheridan, The Australian, 13/11/08)

Thanks MERC for giving your readers a laugh at the expense of Greg[Jerusalem Prize]Sheridan.Of course he is now reduced,with others,to the STREAKERS DEFENCE; "it seemed like a good idea at the time"!Left unsaid is the imagined benifits to Israel.If more wars are the only tools left the Zionist Coup in Palestine has failed.
