It's a good point, how come Rumsfeld, Powell et al get to not only comment and criticise other nations (when they haven't done anything wrong - France didn't so NO, they said NOT YET
), they actually get to overthrow foreign gov'ts, threaten others with same etc. And I can't even comment on a foreign, but important to my well-being, regime. WTF?
And here's another thing: Bush asked Charlotte Church what English 'state' Wales was in. Now. If he's so bright, how come his knowledge of his best (only) ally is so non-existent? I mean, he thinks England is a federal system, and doesn't know Wales is a seperate country? If this is how flakey he is on the UK, what on earth doesn't he know about Iraq, Palestine et al? The mind boggles.
(FYI, the United Kingdom's full name is "the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Great Britain is the union of three nations: England, Scotland and Wales. They are all divided into counties. Not 'states'. Northern Ireland is an Irish province (not British) governed from London, it's capital is Belfast. The Republic Of Ireland is a completely seperate independent nation. Also worth pointing out is that Bush's geographical ignorance is clearly shared by his travel staff - his recent visit to Belfast UK was billed on the official itinerary as 'Belfast, Ireland'. Oh my god.)
Sabena, 'Metal, Alpha and Racko and others, thanks.
