Clinton Advises Israel, Don't Worry, Be Happy

According to NewsMax, Bill Clinton urged Israelis over the weekend not to overreact to comments by newly elected Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad recommending that Israel be "wiped off the map."

What would Slick Willie consider an overreaction? He thinks we overreacted to turning the oval office into his personal intern proving grounds.

Speaking at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on Saturday, Clinton acknowledged that the remark was "outrageous," but he cautioned that the Iranian leader was "not elected because of his hatred for Israel or the West."

"He was elected because of the economic distress of ordinary Iranians, and which he promised to relieve by giving them financial assistance," Clinton explained, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Wait a minute, wasn't economic distress and anti-Semitism what helped launch Hitler into power in Germany?

He warned Israel not to act unilaterally when reacting to terrorist threats, saying that "true peace and security can only come through principled compromise."
I hate to use the same analogy but this sounds a lot like Chamberlain's sellout of Czechoslovakia. In fact to quote Neville," I believe it is peace for our time... Go home and get a nice quiet sleep."

Sure, Bubba, that's some fine advice. Your idea of foreign affairs is committing adultery with women from other nations.
