SO MANY STORIES, SO LITTLE TIME part 2
Meanwhile, Bush's buddy and bastion of freedom Vladimir Putin is openly meddling in Ukraine's affairs. He is openly supporting the winner of the election in the Ukraine, even though virtually every election observer called the election fixed. This latest in a series of anti democratic moves would normally elicit diplomatic protest from the US. But neither Bush or Putin are much interested in promoting democratic rights these days.
Apparently neither is Tony Blair. His proposed new anti terror legislation includes trials of English citizens without jury, and indefinite jailing without charges being filed. Blair should be ashamed. He has allowed the threat of terror to revoke basic British civil rights. For all practical purposes, the terrorists have already won.
