This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Bush: U.S. Had Hand in European Divisions - Yahoo! News:
"'We will not repeat the mistakes of other generations, appeasing or excusing tyranny, and sacrificing freedom in the vain pursuit of stability,' the president said. 'We have learned our lesson; no one's liberty is expendable. In the long run, our security and true stability depend on the freedom of others.'"

This is in reference to the Yalta agreement, where I can only assume Bush would have preferred that we would have used our unlimited supply of killer robots to invade the Soviet Union?

Once again we should note:

Europeans = humans
Africans and all others = non-humans

We should keep our "terminology" straight, as suggested by Robert Zoellick.

During a recent trip to Khartoum and a brief excursion into Darfur, US Deputy Secretary of State Robert Zoellick pointedly refused to confirm the Bush administration’s previous genocide determination. This determination was made unequivocally in Senate testimony by former Bush administration Secretary of State Colin Powell: “genocide has been committed in Darfur, and that the government of Sudan and the Janjaweed bear responsibility” (testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, September 9, 2004).

This decisive conclusion has degenerated into politically guarded word-mincing: Zoellick, when specifically asked about Powell’s determination, declared it a “former Secretary of State” simply “making a point” to Congress (Financial Times, April 15, 2005). “‘I don’t want to get into a debate over terminology,’ [Zoellick] said, when asked if the US believed that genocide was still being committed in Darfur against the mostly African villagers by Arab militias and their government backers” (Financial Times, April 15, 2005). This is part of a larger effort by the Bush administration to re-define the Darfur catastrophe in ways that make it less urgent, and thus less compelling of an appropriate US response.

But then again, its easier to show up 60 years after the fact with your fist waving in the air. Bush seems to think that invading Iraq and Afghanistan is the modern day equivalent of rolling into Moscow after WWII.
