Terrorism tops news headlines and gives President Bush a lot of demand

In prep for the upcoming G8 summit financial leaders are already gathered and discussing the summit's most important topics: energy security, and tackling poverty and terrorist financing. The G8 summit will be held in ST. PETERSBURG. Members of the G8 include Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States. The whole world seems to be talking about terrorism. The media is filled with stories related to terrorism. What did we talk about when it came to politics before 9/11? Another summit of importance is taking place on Monday and Tuesday at Camp David. It is President Bush's summit on Iraq. Bush's national security team and military commanders will join to him to reevaluate policy on Iraq. There will even be a videoconference between Bush's Cabinet and top ministers in Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's new government.

The Washington Post ran this headline this weekend: "Bush Praises Death of Terrorist Al-Zarqawi". Death is prevalent this weekend, it seems. Other top news include the deaths of 3 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. The men hung themselves in what is the first suicides in the maximum security prison for terrorists. President Bush has taken a lot of heat for his use of Guantanamo Bay as a holding ground for terrorists. Violence may soon return to terrorist-stricken Israel. Israel has had a bit less media attention lately because of the violence in Iraq. Some readers may miss this headline:
Israel threatens to kill Hamas leaders, from Aljazeera.net. It reads: "The Israeli defence minister has hinted that Israel may renew its assassination policy against Hamas leaders - even those in government - after the Islamist group ended a 16-month-old truce by firing 25 rockets and mortar bombs at Israel." Great. President George W. Bush and the rest of the G8 summiters have a lot of terrorism and violence to wade through, not to mention poverty and AIDs worldwide.
