This guy is a mentor?

What the crap?

WASHINGTON (AP) — The national security adviser under the first President Bush says the current president acted contemptuously toward NATO and Europe after Sept. 11 and is trying to cooperate now out of desperation to "rescue a failing venture" in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Acted contemptuously towards Europe??? Erhm... what goes around comes around, I suppose. Europe (ie France, Germany, the UN) wasn't exactly all "smiles and niceties" upon hearing that their cash-n-carry little dictator Saddam was about to get his ass handed to him. Funny how that is, eh?

Brent Scowcroft, a mentor to the current national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, also said in an interview published in England that Bush is inordinately influenced by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

Those Jooooooooos! It's always those cursed Joooooooos! What mental hospital was this guy just released from?

"Sharon just has him wrapped around his little finger," Scowcroft told London's Financial Times. "I think the president is mesmerized."

The Joooos' new mind-melding neutron ray-gun of filth has made this President go mad! Maaaaaaaad!

Scowcroft said the Bush administration's "unilateralist" position was partly responsible for the post-Sept. 11, 2001, decline of the trans-Atlantic relationship.

Uni-what now?

Although slightly diminished since then, the unilateralist policies remain fundamentally little changed, Scowcroft said. Recent overtures to cooperate in Afghanistan and Iraq with the United Nations and NATO was "as much an act of desperation as anything else ... to rescue a failing venture."

Is that really what he thinks it is? An act of desperation? Obviously he didn't hear the President speech before the UN last month (a speech that, naturally, fell on mostly deaf ears). This is an opportunity for the UN to prove that they aren't a useless sack of bureaucratic bumblers and insignificant panderers. Unfortunately you can't teach an old dog new tricks. You can only watch as it helplessly lives out the rest of its life.

Act of desperation, my ass.

On Israel and Sharon, the former security adviser said Sharon calls Bush after strongly retaliating for a Palestinian suicide attack and says: '"I'm on the front line of terrorism,' and the president says, 'Yes, you are.'"
Scowcroft said Sharon "has been nothing but trouble."

Those horrible Joooos and their retaliations! Why can't they just live in peace with their death-cult suicide-loving neighbors?
I've got news for you, Sowcrap, Israel IS on the front lines in the War on Terror, and have been for fifty years.
