Bush to help Lebanese army

The US is prepared to help strengthen Lebanon’s army so it can disarm Hezbollah, US President George W Bush said in an interview.

He said the Shia Muslim Hezbollah movement had acted against its own people and was destabilizing Lebanon. He made the remarks ahead of a trip to the Middle East later this week.

At least 60 people have died in clashes in the capital Beirut and other cities between supporters of the government and the Hezbollah-led opposition. The sectarian violence is the worst since the end of the 15-year civil war in 1990.

Why every time there is a screw up somewhere George W. Bush offers …his help?
