Gee! We gave a war and no one came...

They must be wringing their hands in Washington...they tried to stir up a war in our area, but, guess what?  The Presidents of the principal countries involved decided that they didn't want a war handed to them on a platter by the US...

The headlines here all show pictures of handshaking, backslapping and cigar smoking by these Presdents who showed that they regard war as a last resort, not a first one.  What a concept!  It might be time for Washington to take their Cruise missiles and go home...

Please read this--it has big print...  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/09/world/americas/09colombia.html?_r=1&oref=slogin  the best quote from that article:

But the biggest winner appears to have been the region itself, which resolved its own dispute without outside help and without violence.

This is especially true as the other headline shakes it's head at Bush's veto of a law banning a hideous form of torture outlawed by everyone else but other rogue nations...
