he Bush administration is rushing a delivery of precision-guided bombs to Israel, which requested the expedited shipment last week after beginning its air campaign against Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, American officials said Friday.
The decision to quickly ship the weapons to Israel was made with relatively little debate within the Bush administration, the officials said. Its disclosure threatens to anger Arab governments and others because of the appearance that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign in a way that could be compared to Iran’s efforts to arm and resupply Hezbollah.
Please. The "appearance" that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign? Is the NY Times so cowed that they can't say the truth straight out?
Of course we're aiding them. We're giving them arms and the money to pay for them, and we've blocked any and all efforts by the international community to get a cease fire. For fuck's sake. Quit pussy footing around reality.
I suppose the Cheney administration thinks the situation needs a little more clarity. Not enough bouncing rubble or corpses yet.
