So I’m over here in a hotel in Beijing. They have channels in Korean, Japanese, Chinese, English, Russian, Spanish, and French. I’m watching the news about the London bombings, and the only caption I’ve gotten to see of the US reaction is Bush going on in some “This is our house!” Rant about terrorists and how we won’t allow them to come in and do the same thing that has happened in Britain. Now I haven’t gotten too much information about the series of bombings, but why in the Fuckin’ world would he not mention Britain in a press release about London?!?! WTF?? I mean seriously, this was crazy. The least he could have done was mentioned we are empathetic about the previous deaths and mention he’s glad that this potential tradegy may aid in the fight against religious extremists. Way to not even give your biggest supporter a mention.
I’ve been overall supportive of Bush, perhaps even more than is rational. But this next move is just another one of his anti-diplomatic moves. Kudos to how Blair is handling things though, it seems like he’s trying a real grass roots approach.
(Ok, maybe this doesn’t have the flaming chunks of feces I intended to throw, but damnit bush! The whole world is watching LONDON, the least you can do is show a lil support)
