Then And Now

You know things are bad when even our Secretary of State gets heckled on state visits to Britain. Or when she admits to our country making thousands of mistakes in Iraq in the last three years.

Remember the good old days when the American president would be warmly welcomed by the people of foreign lands? How about just allied foreign lands?

Do a search for Clinton's travels and you'll find few incidences of mass protest. You'll also notice that Clinton actually visited other countries on a regular basis!

I wouldn't worry too much about what we Brits think... see http://www.guardian.co.uk/frontpage/story/0,,1745683,00.html
Could some philosopher King come up with a democratic system that is not dominated by investing interests and religious bigots...please?
