PRESIDENT BUSH: -- to help calm the situation, we've got diplomats in the region. Secretary of State Rice, who is here, is on the phone talking to herf counterparts. I'll be making calls.
I gave you my initial impression earlier, and that is that it's a sad situation where -- when there is a very good chance for there to be a two-state solution enacted -- that is two states living side-by-side in peace -- it's really sad where people are willing to take innocent life in order to stop that progress. As a matter of fact, it's pathetic.

Killing Innocent People And The Slim Difference Of Presidential Thinking
Those of you who have not heard what the president has said about the Israel/Lebanon conflict (which may well lead us to WWIII) may be interested in reading the president's thoughts on the matter. Notice the slim differentiation made between killing people in the name of what (peace or stopping peace)? Which is worse - our killing innocent Iraqis - which has brought very little peace to Iraq? Or the actions of Isreal and Hezbollah that result in innocent civilian deaths?
