George W. Bush, Olmert's Poodle

Supposedly, the US is to begin talks with Syria and Iran on establishing peace in Iraq, says White House aide Joshua Bolten on the Sunday political talk shows. Mr. Bolten either doesn't speak for his boss, the President, or Bush is beguiled by Israeli prime ministers. After 5 minutes in a room will Olmert, Bush exits ga-ga and declares that Iran must be contained and strangled to death economically.

Too bad we can't force Bush to talk to Jacques Chirac only. Bush turns to jello when he's around these musky, authoritarian central/east European types like Putin and Olmert.
