Bush 'shares common vision' on EUrabia with Turkey

Imam Bush supports Turkey bid to join EU

* Stupidity & cupidity alert:

WASHINGTON – President Bush gave Turkey’s bid to join the European Union a glowing endorsement on Tuesday and called the Islamic nation a “constructive bridge” between the West and the Muslim world, offering a much-needed boost to U.S.-Turkish relations.


Bush & Gul

* Soon Bush will be gone, but the mess he leaves behind will haunt us for many, many years. But the contempt for Bush in Europe might just be what saves Europe from becoming EUrabia.

Our ‘friends’- the Turks

“I think Turkey sets a fantastic example for nations around the world to see where it’s possible to have a democracy coexist with a great religion like Islam and that’s important,” he said.

* The decider knows what’s important. He knows everything about Islam, which he calls a Religion of Peace’

“We share a common vision,” he said.

In the months leading to Erdogan’s Nov. 5 White House appearance, however, U.S.-Turkish relations were at their lowest point in many years.

In 2003, during the buildup to the Iraq war, the Turkish parliament rejected U.S. requests to send troops into Iraq through Turkish territory. And a poll last summer showed just 9 percent of Turks saw the U.S. favorably.

Despite pleas from the Bush administration and personal appeals from Gul, then foreign minister, and other prominent Turks, the House Foreign Affairs Committee passed a nonbinding resolution last year that described as genocide the World War I-era deaths of Armenians during the final years of the Ottoman Empire. Turkey reacted by withdrawing its ambassador from Washington.

Despite the improved situation since the Erdogan-Bush meeting, the situation remains touchy.

“Certainly there is far greater satisfaction in Turkey than there was as late as three months ago,” John Sitilides, chairman of the Southeast Europe Project at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, said Monday. “It’s all related to the PKK. Now the United States is seen not as an entity that is holding the Turkish military back but is working with Turkey.”

Still, Sitilides said, Turkey could “respond recklessly” to perceived U.S. mistreatment with grievous results. “There are 150,000 U.S. troops on the ground in Iraq whose well-being would be jeopardized if Turkey decided on an action such as closing off access to the flow of war supplies.”

US wants life in prison for 3 in terrorism case

Israel News

US former “enemy combatant” Jose Padilla and two other men convicted last year of conspiring to aid terrorists abroad returned to a Miami court on Tuesday for a hearing to decide whether they will spend the rest of their lives behind bars.

The hearing was scheduled to last several days and began with a long list of defense challenges to a government sentencing report recommending life in prison for all three.

  1. Bush is achieving the incredible-every day he seems to get more and more stupid. I hardly thought it possible but at this rate he may reach a negative number for an IQ.

  2. “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder[er] is less to fear.”- – Marcus Tullius Cicero
