I totally respect your choice, but i have to say that i find America's actions deplorable.
The disrespect that they are showing the country that is hosting the games, is beyond reason. Not only do i believe that the Olympics shouldn't be politicised in this way, but i also believe that the words "Pot, kettle, and Black" should be on the flag that this poor sudanese patsy is carrying....foreign policy, i don't think.
I don't see a hundred thousand troops massing in chad for the push into Darfur...can anyone tell me why? (a cookie if you can guess)
