A global solution to the Irish problem
So George Bush's latest Eurotrip will take him to the UK, including Belfast. Hopefully someone will get around to pointing out that the Northern Ireland peace process began with a process that meets Bush's definition of appeasement, since negotiations were conducted with the IRA before any preconditions had been met. Indeed, the NI government now functions with one long-standing precondition still not met, the disbandment of the IRA Council. And the person behind all this appeasing -- Tony Blair. Is George absolutely sure that Tony is not talking to Hamas as part of his Quartet Envoy role?
