Pelosi vows to get israeli soldiers back
No matter how many Americans die in the process . . .
Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi holds up the tags of an Israeli soldier captured by Hezbollah in Lebanon last year, during her speech at an official dinner at the Knesset April 1, 2007.
It's easier than carrying the tags of over three thousand American soldiers killed in wars fought for israel and demanding accountability for their being sent to their deaths over lies.
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday hailed US-Israeli ties and reaffirmed Washington's commitment to its main ally in the region in an address before the Israeli parliament.
"There is an unshakeable bond between America and Israel," Pelosi, wearing a red suit, told lawmakers, adding that "America's commitment to Israel's security is unshakeable."
"Israeli democracy is one of the cornerstones of a more stable and democratic Middle East."
Washington's top Democrat said she would call for the release of three captured Israeli soldiers -- one by Gaza-based militants last June and two by Lebanon's Hezbollah a month later -- during her visit to Syria later this week.
"We must never rest until they are all safely at home," she said. "And I will mention this to the president of Syria."

She also pledged that on the heels of increased efforts by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to jumpstart stalled peace talks, Washington will stay engaged.
"The United States must have a sustained high-level engagement in the region to bring us closer to the day that we all long for -- when the entire Palestinian government is ready for peace."
In other words, when they're all dead.
Speaking about Israel's arch-foe Iran, Pelosi said the Islamic republic "must not be allowed to have a nuclear weapon."
"Iran is not just an Israeli problem, it's not just a problem for the region, Iran is a problem for the world."
And Pelosi and gang will make sure that The WHOLE World - with the exception of that shitty little country called israel - sacrifices their lives to deal with it.
Here's to you israel - to hell with everyone else!
