It's the end of the world as we know it, and Bush feels fine

Ya'll, it's times like this that I get really fucking nervous about our born-again president and the whole end-times nonsensicle fairy-tale shit that he believes in.

Seriously, we're going to put someone who believes in Armaggedon and the Rapture in charge of peace in the Middle East?

So the Prime Minister of Lebanon asked world leaders to urge Israel to stop their attacks.

Russia - "President Vladimir Putin called on all sides to stand down."

Spain - "Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero warned Israel it was 'making a mistake' to attack Lebanon."

Vatican - "'In fact, the right to defense on the part of a country does not exempt it from respecting norms of international law above all for that which concerns the safety of the civilian population,' said a statement by Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Vatican's No. 2 official."

France - "President Jacques Chirac castigated the Israeli offensive into Lebanon on Friday, calling it 'totally disproportionate.'"

U.N. - Jan Egeland, the top U.N. humanitarian official: "'It is in violation of international law, and it is also in violation of common sense,' he said at the U.N.'s European headquarters in Geneva. 'You are supposed to do something to the armed group. You are not supposed to hurt the children of people who have nothing to do with this.'"

Bush - "promised to pressure Israel 'to limit damage to Lebanon ... and to spare civilians and innocent people from harm.'"

That's our leader. He promised to call Israel and say "Hey, take it easy on the collateral damage, heh, heh."
