Bush's Mideast legacy


www.boston.com

The humanitarian catastrophe imposed on civilians in Gaza, the Iranian-supplied rockets fired into Israel by Hamas, and the Israeli missiles landing in densely populated neighborhoods of Gaza City are among the consequences of eight years of Bush administration policy in the Middle East. The disasters of war in Gaza come as the culmination to a long skein of bad decisions, and those errors will burden President-elect Barack Obama with a tangle of crises that he will have to begin addressing immediately.

Bush took office in 2001 assuming that whatever the Clinton administration had attempted in the Mideast was wrong and not to be pursued. Since Bill Clinton had invested a great deal of time, energy, and prestige in a failed attempt to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement at Camp David, Bush in his first term took a passive stance toward that central conflict.

So with everything that has happened, can the Israeli-Gaza conflict right now be traced down to President Bush?

A lot has happened since Bush took office. The sad part is that many Americans have been kept in the dark, throughout all of it.

George Bush caused and escalated war after war, in the middle east. We, the Americans are paying a lot of money for a lot of bad decisions that have been made. It seems we are responsible for being so ignorant and oblivious, maybe even in our own little world where war and bad things do not exist. That is where Dancing with the Stars and American Idol come in.

Most Americans still have no idea what is going on in the real world. But we are paying for it. Is it really Bush's fault, like the Boston Globe says?
