How to start a war

If someone had managed to shoot and kill Laura Bush while she walked around the Temple Mount with insufficient security and chaotic conditions, the Israelis would have pulled a Palestinian out of the crowd who would admit to being in Hamas or Hezbollah, and also admit to have been put up to it by Syria or Iran. American bombers would be dropping bombs within a week. See how easy it is to start a war? Perhaps some Secret Service agent accidentally got his head in the way of a clear shot (there is a first time for everything!). This would also leave Bush free to marry his true love immediately after his Presidency (after flying to Canada for the ceremony).
