Bush alone at last

Kevin Rudd has ratified the Kyoto Protocol. Until the decision Australia and the US were the only major economies that had refused to ratify the protocol. Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson immediately backed the decision - marking a major departure from the era of John Howard

This blog has recorded the steady erosion of International support for the Bush regime. The political demise of John Howard leave George and his mates isolated now among developed nations. It took a while, now it is up to US voters to finish the job.

One thing about Bush, he really thinks he doesn't needs any intl friends, other than the House of Saud. Afterall, the man never even traveled out of the country until he was prez, he thumbed his nose at the UN & the whole intl community who protested against preemptive war. But I take your point, it's now up to U.S. to send him on his way. And assuming our elections are not cancelled, we will definitely be doing that next yr! Who we replace him with is another matter; it may be someone dictated by rigged electronic voting machines. Sorry to be so pessimistic. Good on Kevin Rudd for ratifying Kyoto -- finally a thinking PM!

Do you know your avatar has disappeared? It's just a blank white square with a little red x. well, maybe you're working up a new one, or ... maybe that little red x has some arcane meaning.
