Protesting A Protest
It seems that some people that live in the Bay Area have had enough of the likes of Code Pink, et al. Wednesday, people that support the military were outnumbering the anti-military factions.
If you remember, San Francisco, Berkeley, and other municipalities of that region will not permit the military to visit the government schools and apparently, they do not want them having an office there, either.
Take a look at the article for more details.
Bhutto Makes Predictable Return
Triumphant, but only for a moment, was her return to Pakistan. Too much fundamentalism means stability will be elusive for this country. Musharref has been the only thing keeping this place from exploding. Bhutto's return may very well be the flashpoint these savages are seeking, to throw Pakistan into total chaos.
Award Undermines Ties?
China is claiming that an award, given to a man they do not like, has undermined ties with the U.S., to which I say, poppycock. What has undermined the ties to the U.S. is more like:
Supporting Iran's quest to build a bomb.
Subverting every relationship the U.S. has in the Asian theater.
Supporting oppressive regimes in the region and worldwide.
Continuing to threaten Taiwan.
Allowing Chinese companies to steal patents from U.S. companies, unpunished.
That's just a sample of the things that the U.S. can submit on its complaint list. As you can see, it far outweighs some piece of paper or plaque that is given to a man.
