there's something wrong with the world today...

I love foreign views of the U.S. from BBC

"The two sides are deadlocked.

Assuming Mr Bolton does not withdraw, the president is faced with a tough political choice.

He has the power to appoint his man over the heads of the senators during their recess for the 4 July holiday - an appointment which would last until 2007.

Would that look like a bold move overcoming petty partisan politics, or the desperate strategy of a lame-duck second-term president?

Mr Bush's advisors must decide. "

Then there is the old news of knowing where Bin Laden is... "Asked if he [ CIA director Porter Goss ] had a good idea where Bin Laden is, he said: "I have an excellent idea of where he is. What's the next question?""

CNN quoted him saying ""When you go to the question of dealing with sanctuaries in sovereign states, you're dealing with a problem of our sense of international obligation, fair play," Goss said. "We have to find a way to work in a conventional world in unconventional ways.""

fair play? why are we worrying about fair play NOW? why don't we just invade? duh. silly CIA.

on another note, the content for my new web page is coming along, now I just need to get good at HTML. sweet.
