Timing is Everything... 

Bush has imposed sanctions on a Arab country during the worst PR disaster this country has ever seen. Can we please have some fucking nuance in foreign policy, for once!

These sanctions may even be justified, but giving so much to Israel really makes us look bad. Israel is the only country in the world to cheer this. The thing is, Americans don't much care about who we sanction (except Cuba I guess) so I don't expect Bush to care about the political implications beyond the Israel first crowd. Rumsfeld has to go, and yet Bush denies all reality and praises him, further proving the point that all his apologies must now ring hollow across the world. What foreign policy?
