"In the night between Thursday and Friday, when the secretary of state wanted to lead the vote on a ceasefire at the Security Council, we did not want her to vote in favour," Olmert said.
"I said 'get me President Bush on the phone'. They said he was in the middle of giving a speech in Philadelphia. I said I didn't care. 'I need to talk to him now'. He got off the podium and spoke to me.
"I told him the United States could not vote in favour. It cannot vote in favour of such a resolution. He immediately called the secretary of state and told her not to vote in favour."
Guess what Mr Olmert? You suck eggs that can't be quantified. If that statement was made to get you gain in Israel you just screwed up big time here. If you think you and your pip squeak dependency are that big a deal that you run US policy you could be in for a serious surprise. I would personally bitch slap you for it. You cock strut around under the shield of the most powerful nation on earth and pretend to set US foreign policy? How many times is it that you think you can shit in our nest before the US public gets over whatever friend idea it is they have about you? Who the fuck do you think you are?
There is such a thing as alliance between nations, it involves a congruence of interests. There is no such thing as national friendships and asswipe Olmert just demonstrated it. Maybe you don't get it. Maybe you have some idea that friends spy on each other, Ask the folks in prison for spying for Israel if they feel like pals. If you want to have a personalized emotional attachment to another nation - help yourself - but to propose that such a thing exists at governmental level is stupidity and begs for this kind of crap.
I don't give a good goddam if it is the last week of the most incompetent pair of assholes in a long long time, this is the United States of America not some damn Jewish subsidiary. I don't hold you, Olmert, against the Israelis, but you just made the best possible argument for not being entangled with you beyond alliance I can think of. No goddam ally would make such a statement, not ever. You've had your ass spoiled and it is time you were spanked.
Except...this country is full of people that think there is such a thing as our friend Israel. (or any other nation)
