Foreign Policy Memo

Foreign Policy Memo to President Bush

Mr President: You are being ill-advised by your Secretary of State (among others).  Very arguably, were it not for Ms. Rice’s zany advocacy of Israel’s suicidal withdrawal from Gaza last summer and her planned future withdrawal from the West Bank – as well as her ceding control of the Gaza-Egypt border to the Palestinian Authority (a direct Condi Rice proposal), we would not be looking at Israel’s current two-front war for survival.

For your State Department to compound its foolishness in advising you to call upon Israel to “use restraint” makes us – frankly, and sadly – a laughingstock.  Mr. President, who uses RESTRAINT in a fight to the death?  

And, remember the phrase you uttered – before you were neutered by the gelding distaff duo of Mrs. Laura Bush and SECSTATE Rice – that you are either for us or against us in (your unfortunately and inaccurately named) “War on Terror?”  Mr. President, it is ABUNDANTLY clear that neither Hamas nor Hezbollah are “with us,” so it is time to make it clear that we are truly AGAINST them!

Mr. President, those of us who devotedly support you in your efforts to stop the Islamofascists are growing VERY weary of (not my idea, but I forget where I read this) your administration’s suspension of all our policies when it comes to Israel.  For example:  We (rightly) don’t negotiate with terrorists, but we are continually exhorting Israel to do so.  We (rightly) work to stop all funding of terrorist organizations, but we (insanely) give financial aid to the irresponsible and terrorist-ridden Palestinian Authority (PA).

Here are my recommendations:

  • Ask Ms. Rice for her resignation: She is in WAYYY over her head right now

  • Tell the world that we not only BACK Israel’s efforts to purge Lebanon of Hezbollah, but that we will provide logistical and naval support of the effort

  • Explain that we will help rebuild a post-war, Hezbollah-free Lebanon, but for now, it is WAR (and CERTAINLY NOT a time for Israel to show restraint)

  • Grow some cojones and tell the world that Israel’s enemies are our enemies:  We stand with her in this conflict – even if we have to stand alone, because a refusal to do so only undercuts our own efforts to defeat the Islamofascists.

  • Do what former Congressman Newt Gingrich has called for and tell the American people that we now find ourselves in the midst of World War III.

  • Tell Mr. Rumsfeld that his policies of “showing restraint” in Iraq and Afghanistan have proven unproductive and the he either take the ROE handcuffs off our troops NOW – or you will find someone to take Mr. Rumsfeld’s place who WILL.

  • Make it clear that we know that Iran is clearly behind the current “twi-night double-header” of Hamas’ and Hizbollah’s two-front attack on Israel (note, especially, Iranian involvement in the latest rocket attacks on the Israeli interior, as well as the crippling of an Israeli ship with a high-tech Iranian missile) and that we will no longer make any excuses for them: Let it be known that any Iranian planes or ships on their way to Egypt, Lebanon, or elsewhere, to resupply the terrorists will from now on be fair game to American jets and ships.

  • Let North Korea (and China) know that we are tired of the North Korean madman’s silly games.  The next threatening missile launch will be met with unpleasant (and deliberately unspecified) consequences.

  • We will AT LONG LAST close our border with Mexico to make it harder for terrorists to infiltrate this country’s territory.  (I know this last item will hurt your pride – but it will help our war effort!)


Ultimately, Mr. President, you have blinked – and blinked repeatedly – over the past several months, both in the matter of North Korea and in the matter of Iran (to say nothing about the matter of Venezuela’s Marxist Thug-Leader, Hugo Chavez).  You have been rewarding intransigence and nuclear bluster with offers of negotiations and financial incentives.  This is not a sign of military strength – it is a sign of weakness of will.
Mr. President, I believe that – deep down – you have the stuff of inspiring, bold wartime leadership in you.  However, in order for you to find it – and more importantly – USE it,  you will FIRST have to come to grips with the fact that – for at least three months – you have (at Ms. Rice’s – and, no doubt, others’ behest) been traveling down the unseemly Neville-Chamberlain route to appeasement.

Time to resolve immediately, Sir – NO MORE appeasement of mad dictators; NO MORE moral-equivalency pronouncements regarding Israel and her America-hating, Islamofascist, terror-loving enemies; NO MORE holding our troops back in Iraq and Afghanistan – make it clear that a terrorist captured will from now on a terrorist shot dead on the spot.  

Go for it, Mr. President!

We are counting on you!

There does seem to be a growing war weariness within the White House, which is puzzling given their "long haul" mantra in the war on terror.

Israel is an ally-- it's well known to the world-- why don't we act like one toward them instead of coddling the Islamic extremists, whom we will never persuade to modify their stance.

LOL. I guess we can show the wonderful success in Occupied Iraq as an indication of what a "Hizbollah-free" Lebanon built by us will look like.

Anyway, as usual, President Chavez (democratically elected with MUCH larger margins than that idiot in the White House) is correct. By no stretch of the imagination can the Israeli massacres be deemed proportionate (one IDF occupation soldier taken prisoner in Gaza = IDF murdering at least 29 Palestinians [mostly women & children] so far; two IDF soldiers taken prisoner in Lebanon = more than 106 Lebanese [mostly civilians] butchered). By all accounts, Israel is only allowed to ignore international law, common decency, and butcher with impunity because of U.S. protection.

President Chavez, as usual, has hit the nail on the head.

anonymous #2 (the Jew-hating Marxist-defending anonymous): You have told us a great deal more (unflattering though it is) about your self in your comment than you have about either Israel or Chavez. Your anti-Israel rant is risible, as is your defense of the Marxist tyrant, Chavez. If you really like him so much, PLEASE emigrate to his worker's paradise post-haste. P.S. Since neither Hamas nor Hezbollah are regular armies and neither uses genuine military bases, they are simply armed civilian terrorists who mingle with the unarmed terrorists. Unless Israel is going to allow Hamas and Hezbollah's vicious attacks to go unanswere, there will BY DEFINITION be civilians killed. Can't ask for pity when you are using women and children as your shields. ERGO: Hamas and Hizbollah are cowardly Islamofascist terrorists and Chavez is their friend. -- gunjam

You are right on! The Israelis gave too much, now they have no choice. Let's hope they aren't taking advice from Rumsfeld. What I don't understand is this...the Palenstinians are doing their best to destroy Israel, yet, the only jobs they have are in Israel. It's sheer stupidity...let's hope Israel is able to irradicate it. Cuz, if no, we're next.
