"I am deeply saddened by the terrible loss of innocent life," said the Bush White House Piano Player, emerging from a meeting with Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz which was, seemingly, taking place while the Piano Player was voicing her CONCERNS to him, she says, about the impact that that Israeli military operations would have on innocent civilian Lebanese life.

How magnanimous of her ... to voice her CONCERNS that, "your bombs," (meaning U.S. made, Israeli launched bombs, will have a harmful effect on innocent civilian Lebanese life.)

How noble of mind and heart to express a free-floating concern, about innocent civilian Lebanese life, without delivering any kind of strong words to the Israelis that they must STOP THE MASSACRE being conducted by U.S. made, Israeli delivered, bombs, on the innocent civilian Lebanese life.

How magnanimous of Piano Playing Condoleezza Rice to understand that, "...this kind of warfare is extremely difficult... [for whom, I wonder, because it does not seem to be so for her and that...] ... it unfortunately has awful consequences sometimes," and with that, go on playing the same Bush encore that, "an enduring peace must be had."

How very noble of this childless woman to recognize that, "this kind of warfare is extremely difficult," then go on to stay the course, and play the ENDURING PEACE score, not for enduring peace, not for the men, women and children of Lebanon (or Israel for that matter) for whom she has expressed concern, not for world peace, but for the People for the New American Century, and for her power-and-control crazed Bushes.

How magnanimous of her to want "a ceasefire as soon as possible" without making
demands for a ceasefire NOW and with that allow the massacre to continue.

How courageous of her not to travel to Lebanon after the strikes in Qana which killed at least 27 children this morning U.S.A. time. How upbeat, upper handed, and upstaging of her to say that she called Prime Minister Saniora to cancel her visit to Lebanon-rather than gracefully admit to the Prime Minister's press announcement that he called her requesting that she postpone her visit to his country after said early morning Israeli attack on Qana...

The White House Piano Player must have the upper hand, the beat of her tune must play for the world the notion, much maligned these days, that the United States is a super power well liked and well respected in many parts of the world.

The White House Piano Player is the concert master. She chooses the score. She chooses the tune. She chooses the notes. She chooses the melody or lack thereof.

She must not play any soft notes, lest her heart and mind begin to realize that she is playing to the wrong tune and the wrong notes in an empty stage where her piano playing can crumble and her notes become an unwanted, sourly admission that the world does not want to go along with the libretto, the play, or the piano score upon which her fingers seem to glide.

And yet...

She, the Bush White House Piano Player, keeps on, playing her somber notes and score on a world stage to an audience that refuses her, applause.
