Apparently, genocidal violence is suddenly a good thing (emphasis added):
At today’s press conference, NBC’s David Gregory noted that, three years ago, the Bush administration predicted that “the invasion of Iraq would create a new stage of Arab-Israeli peace,” but that hasn’t happened.
In response, President Bush proudly declared that American foreign policy no longer seeks to “manage calm,” and derided policies that let anger and resentment lie “beneath the surface.” Bush said that the violence in the Middle East was evidence of a more effective foreign policy that addresses “root causes.”
Excellent. Me, a Blogging Tory and a tire iron. Time to address the "root causes" for all that "anger and resentment." Don't wait up.
BONUS SNARK: As the years go by, this will never lose its entertainment value.
