  1. Actually it reminds me very much of Islamic Gov’t States. Read it again and be honest with yourself. I guess with Mr Bush the devil you know and can vote out rather than the devil you don’t know without democracy.
    But thats only my opinion I welcome yours, where in many of the Arab countries you couldn’t voice publically,funny that.


  2. Of course it does.
    It reminds me of a lot of regimes around the world, not just the US or Islamic countries.

    But it’s just a bit more ironic when it comes from a country like the US that claims to be the leader of the free world.
