Russia calls for the opposite: Russia defends Hamas Meeting
A conversation was aired by President Bush during their lunch -
President Bush, not realizing his remarks were being picked up by a microphone at a summit of world leaders, bluntly expressed his frustration with Hezbollah's actions.

"See, the irony is what they really need to do is to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this (expletive)," Bush told Blair in a discussion before the Group of Eight leaders began their lunch.

Bush's remarks were picked up by the summit's closed-circuit television, which was filming the leaders sitting down to eat. Normally, the images are transmitted with sound that does not allow reporters to pick out individual comments.sound. But in this case a microphone picked up Bush's comments to Blair.

Blair, whose remarks were not as clearly heard, appeared to be pressing Bush about the importance of getting international peacekeepers into the region.

ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - A microphone picked up an unaware President Bush saying on Monday Syria should press Hezbollah to "stop doing this sh*t" and that his secretary of state may go to the Middle East soon.
Much ado about nothing but crap!!! Big deal, my words would have probably been a bit more harsh.

Good Luck on that....the U.N. is as corrupt as the terrorists Israel is fighting.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) - Space shuttle Discovery astronauts prepared for a Florida landing on Monday at the end of a mission NASA hopes will show the fleet is fit to fly safely, three years after the fatal Columbia accident.
The crew awakened just after midnight to get ready for a scheduled 9:14 a.m. EDT touchdown at Kennedy Space Center, from which they launched on July 4.
"Looking forward to a good day here and hopefully with good weather we will be on the ground here in about eight, 10 hours," flight commander Steve Lindsey radioed to Mission Control at Johnson Space Center in Houston.
