Events caught fire on June 28 as Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) re-entered Gaza in strength to find a soldier captured three days earlier by the military arm of the Hamas resistance. Two weeks after the start of that incursion, another Palestinian resistance group, Hezbollah, captured two more IDF soldiers. A brief IDF attempt to locate and free these soldiers ended when a tank hit a mine, killing four Israelis. Reacting more quickly than in the Gaza incident, IDF airplanes began what has become an ever-widening bombardment, hitting the Beirut airport, key infrastructure in the north of Lebanon, and at least one power plant in southern Lebanon. From the sea, IDF forces began shelling coastal areas of the country. For its part, Hezbollah has been firing dozens of extended-range Katyusha rockets daily into towns and villages in northern Israel, striking further than ever before, from Haifa on the coast to settlements on the Sea of Galilee

Of course, he's not to blame for everything! But nevertheless, he is all for death, destruction and a continuous war. What is happening in the Middle East is what Bush wanted.
What luck!!! You have to admit, he does get his wishes fulfilled one way or another!
I find it rather hard to believe that all of the happenings in the middle east are part of a grand plan.

Its part of the purpouse of agencies like CIA, Mossad, MI6 and SVR to not just gather intelligence, but stage false flag operations that stir up the hornets nest in places like Israel and Lebanon.

Do you guys sit down with Bush or do you know what he thinks. You guys must be mind readers to get that info. I don't know were you get this stuff from.
"One of the concerns people have is that Israel might do it without being asked... Given the fact that Iran has a stated policy that their objective is the destruction of Israel, the Israelis might well decide to act first, and let the rest of the world worry about cleaning up the diplomatic mess afterwards," (quoted from an MSNBC Interview Jan 2005)
"A British intelligence official said that any campaign against Iran would not be a ground war like the one in Iraq. The Americans will use different tactics, said the intelligence officer. 'It is getting quite scary.'" (Evening Standard, 17 June 2003)
