U.S. Speeds Up Bomb Delivery for the Israelis

NYT reported 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. The decision to quickly ship the weapons to Israel was made with relatively little debate within the Bush administration, the officials said. Its disclosure threatens to anger Arab governments and others because of the appearance that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign in a way that could be compared to Iran’s efforts to arm and resupply Hezbollah.

Add a bunch of bunker busters, and perhaps a few Fuel Air Bombs, but keep at least one precision-guided bomb for the New York Times
The munitions that the United States is sending to Israel are part of a multimillion-dollar arms sale package approved last year that Israel is able to draw on as needed, the officials said. But Israel’s request for expedited delivery of the satellite and laser-guided bombs was described as unusual by some military officers, and as an indication that Israel still had a long list of targets in Lebanon to strike.

Argo blogged So here they are again conducting foreign policy for the administration. s this even real news? We all know that the US deals arms to Israel, but the Times takes it upon themselves to let all of the Arab nations know that they should be upset with us over a rushed shipment.

Macsmind blogged The Ny Traitor Times with another "scoop". Yeah Duh! "Disclosure!" Like when you get and print a leak? Incidently the Arabs were born angry. Additionally just for the record, we could give a crap about what angers the "Arab Governments" - and the moronic comparison between us helping Isreal eradicate cockroaches isn't the same as rogue nation supplying such cockroaches.

Blue Crab blogged The New York Times, working to actively undermine the US by knowingly printing information that could anger Arab governments and hamper Condi Rice's efforts at diplomacy. By their own admission, no less. One hopes the Times hurries it's rush to bankruptcy and ceases operations.

OTB blogged This continues the administration’s strategy of clearly picking sides in this conflict, which is in marked contrast to American policy over the last 30-odd years of at least attempting to play the role of neutral arbiter. Given how spectacularly unsuccessful that proved to be–both in terms of convincing the Arabs we weren’t backing the Israelis and at achieving lasting peace–maybe a new strategy is called for.

Hyscience blogged In their piece, as we have come to expect from the NYT, they dedicate most of their text to bashing the Bush administration and attempt to cast the effort in negatives, saying that it will anger the Arabs (who are likely jumping up and down in glee at Israel's reining-in of Hezbollah and by proxy - Iran). Rush on, rush on, rush on - double the order and add Syria to the crosshairs.
