Don't Talk To Nazis

Honestly, this is just embarassing coming from the mouth of a president, but when you cow tow to the Israeli Lobby, who are about as wrong as wrong can be, you have say some pretty stupid things.....from the NYT

In a lengthy speech intended to promote the strong alliance between the United States and Israel, the president invoked the emotionally volatile imagery of World War II to make the case that talking to extremists was no different than appeasing Hitler and the Nazis.

“Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” Mr. Bush said. “We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: “Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.” We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

Gee Mr Bush, what about the Soveits, whom we 'allied' with - you know the ones who killed 20 million people? They were the 'good guys'?

So according the Bush we're supposed to attack anyone/everyone we label extremist. How is it China can oppress her people and other peoples (Tibet) and still have most favored nation status? How is it Israel can encourage utlra orthodox settlements - people who literally think that non Jewish life is worthless - yet not be labeled extremist...but Palestinians who are simply fighting for the homeland are "extremist".

And what about me Mr. Bush, my ancestors fought and died for this country, I have no other, no other loyalty, and I think you're and extremist....what do you suggest I do?
