Has anyone eles noticed that once one of our wars and "hunts" go sour we turn our attention some where eles.

Our hunt for Osama Bin Ladin....dident find him lets exstiguish and "rebuild" afghanistan.

Warlords begin to slowly take over again and the public is asking for Osma Bin Ladin (as if his death will really stop anything anyway)

Now Iraq has "weapons of mass destruction" we invade at a cost of life and as of now found nothing, tension is mounting but who has time to worry about Iraq when pece in Africa is at risk Korea has a "nukeulair" weapon or two and now i hear that Iran has violated some weapon realted law.

I just have to butt in and ask...when was africa at peace? because I think you really have to attain peace in order to risk it. So, maybe the distraction is that he's NOTICING it's not at peace and not that peace is there and at risk, yes?

All presidents do this. But its not a coincidence that the movie "Wag the Dog" was released during the Clinton Presidency. He was a magician - a master of misdirection.

Politics is like a first date: Nothing is as it appears.

Read The Prince by Machiavelli. This book defines modern politics. It is considered required reading for any person who seeks high office.

So when did they put out a picture-book version for Bush to 'read'? Or does his mommy read it to him before his mid-afternoon nap?

I think it was an illustrated version with each page marked as "DO" or "DON'T"

It would seem that Carter never read this; a great man but a lousy prince.

Ah well never mind, just have to get used to politicians and their ability (inability) to mislead the public over everything that they do.
