Have George W. and his wife Laura for one minute stopped to think of the world crisis they would cause were either one, or both, of them to be assassinated overseas, where they are beyond our jurisdiction and secure protection?
Their appearances in those parts of the world that think nothing of throwing a grenade, or crashing a bomb-laden car into the crowd, is high risk behavior, and only luck has saved our president so far.
Oh sure, they might go down in history as martyrs of a kind, and their efforts are well meant certainly, but too great a price lies waiting in the wings. The enraged reaction of this country would be entirely unpredictable.
They should stop that kind of world travel. It does not contribute to world peace, only to world anxiety.
