BUBBA: I'D FIGHT AND DIE FOR ISRAEL By ANDY GELLER and RICHARD JOHNSO August 2, 2002 -- Bill Clinton - who avoided serving in Vietnam - says he would take up arms and "fight and die" for Israel if Iraq attacks the Jewish state. "If Iraq came across the Jordan River, I would grab a rifle and get in the trench and fight and die," the ex-president said to wild applause at a Jewish fund-raiser in Toronto. Clinton made his bombshell remarks to 350 people who paid $1,000 to break bread with him on Monday night at a dinner for the Toronto Hadassah-WIZO children's charity. Clinton, who tried but failed to make peace in the Middle East the legacy of his presidency, decried the current cycle of violence in Israel. "I don't think there is a military solution to this," he said. "But I know there's not a terrorist solution to it." Clinton also said he disagreed with President Bush that peace can be achieved only when Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is gone from power. Nevertheless, he said it is important for the United States to remain involved because "Israelis believe that America is the only big country that cares if they live or die." The ex-president said the best solution to the Middle East conflict is an interim settlement that would "establish a Palestinian state now." But he stressed that the creation of such a state must be preceded by security assurances for Israel and a timetable to resolve other issues. Clinton said Arafat made a "disastrous mistake" by turning down past peace proposals that would have given the Palestinian leader control of 97 percent of the West Bank. Yet, Clinton said, "There is reason for hope. "I think this will be resolved on the terms the Palestinians walked away from." Turning his attention to another conflict, Clinton cited India and Pakistan as countries that must move forward with peace. "They are a classic example of the tragedy that can result when people become obsessed with holding on to yesterday's grievances," he said. Clinton couldn't be reached for comment yesterday because he was on a plane to Aspen, Colo., his spokeswoman said. Clinton, who opposed the Vietnam War, signed up for the ROTC to avoid immediate induction when he received a draft call in 1969. He later changed his mind about the ROTC and decided to take his chances with the new draft lottery.

[b]Boundless: the return of slick willie[/b] TownHall.com ^ | 8/02/02 | Paul Greenberg Now we all know where William Jefferson Clinton, Esq., plans to get the money to pay all those legal bills he ran up during the late unpleasantness in Washington. No, he isn't about to use up the fat fees he collects for speaking around the world -- $9.2 million just last year. At last report, he was getting between $75,000 and $350,000 a pop. Nor does Bill Clinton propose to touch his book advance (which has been put at between $10 million and $12 million) for what will surely be the most widely unread presidential memoir in American history. Why spend his own money when he can dip into the U.S. Treasury? That's right. Slick Willie proposes to have his legal bills paid by: (ITALICS) You. Mr. and Ms. American Taxpayer. Through his lawyer, who stands to collect a sizable share of those fees himself, the ever impeachable Mr. Clinton has asked a court to direct the U.S. government to pay off the squadrons of attorneys it took to get him off the hook. Yes, now you, too, can pay off Bill Clinton's lawyers. How is that possible? Simple. Slick Willie is taking advantage of a law written to protect those pulled into the independent counsel's investigation of his presidency even though they were never indicted or censured for anything. For example, bystanders like his first chief of staff, Mack McLarty, who was bound to be questioned when he started hanging out with all that bad company, i.e., the Clinton administration. Now comes William Jefferson Clinton, and he wants the public to pay his costs, too, even though he was impeached -- which is the equivalent of being indicted. As we were reminded again and again during his trial in the U.S. Senate. Cited for civil contempt and suspended from the bar, Bill Clinton avoided a criminal indictment by a classic plea bargain: He admitted to testifying falsely under oath -- which is as close as you can come to confessing perjury without confessing. And now, after all this, he wants the rest of us to pay for all the distinguished lawheads who got him off. There is a word to describe this kind of brass, moxie, nerve, chutzpah and greed: Boundless. Yet it's hard to be outraged at this latest caper of Bill Clinton's because it's just what you would expect of him. What in others might be outrageous is in Bill Clinton only standard operating procedure. Different presidents respond differently to disgrace: Richard Nixon, hopelessly puritanical, resigned rather than face impeachment, and then spent the next 20 years rehabilitating himself. Bill Clinton has responded by asking the American people to pay his bills. Whatever you think of that request, it's hard to resist a certain admiration for the sheer, unadulterated nerviness of it. You gotta hand it to the rascal. He keeps setting new records for shamelessness. We can all give up on the foolish hope that, once he was out of the White House and dog house, our prodigal son would turn into some kind of Jimmy Carter in his post-presidential years, traveling the country building houses for the poor. Or settle down in the role of nonpartisan elder statesman a la Gerald Ford.

continued ----- Fuhgeddaboutit. In or out of office, Bill Clinton remains Bill Clinton. The more he changes, the more he doesn't. The years have passed, and by now our boy president has become our boy ex-president. He is still the perpetual adolescent, forever striding up Fool's Hill, knowing he'll get away with it. And why not? Haven't we let him? He may get investigated, but it's always others who take the rap. What a show. It never stops. Now we're supposed to take Bill Clinton for a victim of the Clinton Scandals instead of their central figure. The effrontery of it. If there were any justice in the world, Bill Clinton would be arrested for imitating an innocent bystander. It was said of Teddy Roosevelt by the British ambassador at the time, in perhaps the most concise and accurate summary of that remarkable personality, "You must always remember that the president is about 6." When it comes to Bill Clinton, we must always remember that he's about 17 -- with the same sure confidence that, whatever happens, somebody else will pay for it. And this time, folks, he's nominated you, his fellow Americans. Read Paul Greenberg's biography

The only thing the asshole would ever really fight for is his right to lie about getting some pussy. However, after seeing the above picture of the "The One Whose Name is too Evil to Mention" I kinda don't blame him for wanting to get a little Strange.
