If "the United States is gravely concerned for regional peace and stability" in the Mideast given the latest Hamas assassination, we have a funny way of showing it. No outright condemnation of the killing, whereas at least Britain mustered up that the act was "unlawful, unjustified and counter-productive." Even of more concern: reports that Sharon is operating in full election-mode with regards to these recent assassinations (versus the Bush administration's support for such acts as Israel having the right to defend itself). Quite a difference. And of even greater concern is the suggestion that Bush & Co. endorse the idea of encouraging unrest in the Middle East to bring about Armageddon, The Rapture, et al.
