>negative effect on the mayor's efforts to attract >American tourists here. I'm not sure about tourism but it makes me consider going to London as a refugee when Ashcroft has his stormtroopers start rounding up us low-level political dissidents in the US (if I could stay clear of Downing Street). >Ari Fleischer, said: "First of all, I've never heard of >the fellow. And that says a great deal about the Bush administration's awareness of the rest of the world, diplomacy, and its foreign policy! >"Mayor ivingstone's opinions about the United States are >a matter of complete indifference to the American >embassy,..." As are everyone else's opinions. The things which may in the end bring down the Bushies is his overwhelming arrogance, along with the plunging economy (`let them eat cake'). If keep gathering rope they will soon have ample to hang themselves. PS -- a thought which has occured to me is that Iraq is now a perfect breeding ground for an epidemic -- not just of cholera, but of a plague like SARS: wretched medical care, malnutrition, poor sanitation, poverty, minimal government -- such a disease would rip though the population like wildfire on dry grassland, and possibly take many of the occupiers as well. I don't want to even think about it any longer. :( ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!
