On the Road to World War III: June 14th edition

This is very bad. Its too late for peace. The neocons get what they want: general Middle East war:
Crowds marched behind a somber funeral procession Thursday after a powerful car bombing killed a prominent anti-Syrian legislator and nine other people, dealing a new blow to the stability of this conflict-torn nation.

Need more convincing? More Chaos in the Middle East means more Americans dying:
Hamas fighters on Thursday raised the green flags of the Islamist movement over one of the last Gaza City bastions of forces loyal to Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, witnesses said.

What do you expect from a government headed by George Bush:
An internal FBI audit has found the agency violated rules more than 1,000 times while collecting data on domestic phone calls, e-mails and financial transactions in recent years, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

The number of violations uncovered by the audit was far greater than those previously documented in a Justice Department report in March, the Post said.

Scary:
"The FBI's comprehensive audit of National Security Letter use across all field offices has confirmed the inspector general's findings that we had inadequate internal controls for use of an invaluable investigative tool," FBI General Counsel Valerie Caproni was quoted as telling the Post.

The UN should be in the business of promoting peace not prolonging conflict. No wonder the world is in chaos:
The U.N. Security Council agreed Wednesday to an Iraqi request to extend the mandate of the U.S.-led multinational force after the country's foreign minister said the troops were "vitally necessary."

It won't be long before the term civil war comes from the lips of King George:
Three Sunni Muslim mosques were attacked and burned south of Baghdad on Thursday, Iraqi police said, in apparent reprisal attacks after suspected al Qaeda militants blew up the minarets of a revered Shi'ite shrine.

Thousands of Iraqi and U.S. soldiers were on the streets of Baghdad and other cities enforcing curfews imposed after Wednesday's bombing at Samarra's al-Askari mosque toppled its two golden minarets.

An attack on the same mosque in February 2006 unleashed waves of sectarian violence in which tens of thousands of people were killed, tipping Iraq close to all-out civil war between majority Shi'ite Muslims and minority Sunni Arabs.

How low can you go:
President George W. Bush's approval rating has dropped to 29 percent in an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Wednesday, his lowest mark ever in that survey, which also found only 23 percent approved of the job Congress was doing.

Even Republicans are now realizing that this Prez is a disaster.
In the poll, 62 percent of Republicans approved of Bush's job performance, down from 75 percent in April. Thirty-two percent of Republicans in the latest poll disapproved of Bush's performance, up from 21 percent in April.

Congress shouldn't be gloating, they are even worse. The people realize that the Democrats are no better when it comes to governing:
The latest poll also found Americans growing more discontented with the Democratic-led Congress, with 64 percent disapproving of Congress' job performance. Only 23 percent approved, down 8 points since April.

Americans realize that we face a mountain of serious problems ahead and the government isn't worth much help in solving them. We feel helpless and hopeless:
Sixty-eight percent believe the United States is on the wrong track. Only 19 percent believe the country is headed in the right direction -- the lowest number in nearly 15 years, NBC said.
