Bush should move to Albania and be dictator there
From the man who lied about a humble foreign policy campaigning against Bill Clinton (nicely caged by a hostile legislature he was a serviceable conservative president), against whose bombing of Serbia Lew Rockwell founded his excellent site as a protest:
Mr Bush on Saturday expressed frustration about the lack of international consensus on granting Kosovo independence from Serbia.

After the talks
[in Rome], riot police used tear gas against anti-Bush demonstrators.
‘Freedom’, ‘democracy’... stuff it.

Apparently the Pope didn’t give the president the talking-to he deserves although ‘regional’ could be the diplomatic Roman way of saying ‘get out’ and of course his concern about Iraq’s Christians, now quitting the country if they can, is well founded. Spot the amusing Bush malapropism:
The pontiff raised his concerns about the plight of Christians in Iraq, and expressed hopes of a "regional and negotiated solution to the conflicts that afflict" the Middle East, the Vatican said.

President Bush said the two had discussed the situation in Iraq.

"He was concerned that the society that was evolving would not tolerate the Christian religion", said Mr Bush.

"He's worrisome about the Christians inside Iraq being mistreated by the Muslim majority."
Well, as he has had the sense as a good Catholic to oppose this war from the beginning I imagine he still is worrisome to Mr Bush’s minders.

Rockwell writes in his blog:
All politicians fear their own people the most. They love Bush in Eastern Europe, where the US is credited with delivering them from Communism, when it was the US that delivered these countries to Stalin in the first place.
Remember Yalta?
