    Has GW come up with a cunning stunt to remove Iraq as the primary legacy of his presidency.......by starting a new cold war?

    Uber cunning non?

    Perhaps that's what he's doing, but I feel it may be someone else's idea

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Would things really get to that stage or has Russia become too westonised to turn its back on Europe and the US (so the likes of Russia and China always blustered at things like the US support for Israel and the sanctions imposed on the middle east and Korea but never back their words up)?

    Also why is Europe allowing this to go ahead when they're supposed to be acting as an idiot buffer against the frequently questionable US actions and foreign policy?

    I fail to see any way Bush could not have Iraq be his primary legacy.
    In fact I believe he wants it to be....reasons for this are debatable.

    The statement of Russia choosing to point missiles at "New European Targets" was only a formality. Putin himself said it would take but a few minutes to re-lock on old European targets.

    To be perfectly honest, I was unaware that they had ever got round to unlocking them in the first place so the statement didn't cause me any loss of sleep.

    I think it is a load of nonsense over a system that doesn't work yet set against a threat that doesn't exist yet - nor likely to for many years.

    You should be worried. They say Hunterson is one of the targets when they actually mean you.

    I was wondering, would it now be OK for Russia to set up a similar system in Cuba?

    As for the Bush Legacy, it is scattered in graves all over Iraq, UK and the USA.

    I must agree

    Clinton legacy - Monica Lewinski
    Bush legacy - a botched Iraq War

    I actually don't think Bush has a high point to his presidency.

    That's pretty sad. I am happy to say that I didn't vote for him either time.

    Maybe Putin and Bush should go into the bathroom,pull down their pants,and see who has the biggest dick.....get me?

    All those cold Russian winters I'd side with Bush.

    This is nothing more than a pissing match....again.

    I hope Bush doesn't plan any trips to Dealey Plaza...oh wait, I don't believe in conspiracies.

    SideNote......Putin said Russia is the world's best democracy??

    I did read somewhere that Putin is quite witty and entertaining as a host - so that confirms it then


    Bob - they will have to hurry though, I think Hunterson is due to close in a few years.

    I remember Putin responding when Bush tried to lecture him about democracy.

    He pointed out that GW was elected president but Gore got more votes.

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.
