Another serious bombing... this time in Egypt at a resort, killing 88 people. Egyptian Bloggers like this writer have harsh words to describe the attack:
Of course, I have to stress again that this is proof that Bush has failed. I said it before, and I'm saying it again. Ok don't question Bush for that war on terror, but have him think of some other way to do it maybe? I hate to admit it, but Hosni Mubarak, our wise president, was right when he said that the war in Iraq will create a thousand Bin Ladens. He said that and then somehow he managed to do every single thing the US asked of him afterwards!
I can't say I disagree, though I would point out that to place all the blame for US foreign policy on Bush is to give the man too much credit... the blame rests just as much on members of his administration, and politicians who have monopolized our government for a long time, in both the Republican and Democratic parties. Just check out this picture of our secretary of defense, Donald "I don't fully equip our soldiers" Rumsfeld.
I betcha he isn't shaking hands or visiting with Uncle Saddam now.
In happier news, congrats to Abe and Heidi on the engagement.
