U.S. Speeds Up Bomb Delivery for the Israelis – New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/07/22/world/middleeast/22military.html?ex=1311220800&en=f256f1d08772835d&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss

The Bush administration is rushing a delivery of precision-guided bombs to Israel, which requested the expedited shipment last week after beginning its air campaign against Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, American officials said Friday.

I’m speechless. Thank God BoingBoing’s Xeni sums it up better than I:

“US rushes peace negotiators – er, laser-guided bombs to Israel”

This behaviour seems completely unreasonable (especially for a country already having “Muslim Trouble”) until you remember that a large part of Bush’s political base – and indeed Bush himself – are evangelical Christians who believe in the Rapture. Harper’s Weekly exposes a message board for these lunatics, who are ecstatic to the point of hysteria.
