Clarity


Bush at the G-8, with Indian PM Singh: “I’m most pleased that the leaders came together to say, look, we condemn violence, we honor innocent life.” Did the leaders really say “look”? He went on, “However, for the first time we’ve really begun to address with clarity the root causes of the conflict, the recent conflict in the Middle East, and that is terrorist activity”. By “root” causes, he means things that happened as long as two weeks ago. And what caused this terrorist activity? Don’t know, don’t care, everything was fine in the Middle East until the terrorists came along and wrecked everything. Trying to understand any more than that would upset the clarity we evidently now have for the very first time.
