International Cooperation

I just read that the Thai police arrested suspected Canadian pedophile, Christopher Paul Neil. What's unusual about this case is the high degree of international cooperation among police.

Suppose that in the wake of 9/11, George Bush had taken such an approach to apprehending Osama Bin Laden? Might he be in custody today? Might we have avoided the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?

At the back of my mind is Michael Moore's insinuation that Bush let Bin Laden get away. And this returns me to the question that we should be pursuing: why exactly are we at war in Afghanistan and Iraq? What were Bush's motives?

My opinion? He wants to preside over WW3. And so far, no one seems willing or able to stop him.

Doesn't that just piss you off?

Republican Logic

So I heard that most of the Republican candidates for President say that A) we've got to get federal spending under control and B) they will sustain a military presence in Iraq.

Gee, that sounds real logical.

It's kind of like being Pro-life and Pro-capital punishment.

Everyone who wants another eight years of this, go and put a yellow ribbon where the sun don't shine.
