At least Foley is probably breathing a sigh of relief now that he's not in the spotlight

Is there nothing that the Bush Foreign Policy can’t do. This man is an absolute saint, I mean SAINT. First he deftly negotiated North Korea into not test launching their medium range missile and now he was able to, single handedly I might add, stop L’il Kim from testing a nuc-qu-lar bomb. It was amazing how, with all of his built up credibility in world politics that he was able to just ask and it was done. That is what we have needed in a leader.

Just imagine if he had gone of half cocked in some other part of the world without the worlds approval or help, on a half baked mission filled with half truths and no plans. Why he may not have been taken seriously when he put his foot down this time when it really, REALLY mattered.

You just gotta hope that the crack Homeland Security Department, with Heck of a Job Chertoff manages to check the right 3% of container’s on ships that come from the Pacific Rim over the next year or so. It would be a shame if Homeland Security was still searching 80 year old women at airports at that time.

Honestly, what would be better right now for the party in power than another devastasting terrorist attack?

Now it's said to have been a 4.3 on the Richter scale.

Remember when the French cleverly sabotaged a Greenpeace sailboat that was staged to protest a nuke test? Don't mess with the French if you're an unarmed enviro group. The French will kill you.
