Bush to meet Blair at White House July 28
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who have a difference of opinion about a multilateral force for southern Lebanon, will next week hold their second face-to-face talks this month.

Bush and Blair have been strong allies on the Iraq war and many other foreign policy challenges. But Bush has yet to sign on to Blair's call for deploying an international security and monitoring presence along the border of Lebanon and Israel......

"The two leaders will consult on efforts to secure a lasting peace in the Middle East, consolidate democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan, prevent Iran from obtaining the means to build nuclear weapons, end the genocide in Darfur, and promote free and fair trade," White House spokesman Tony Snow said.

Diet Coke will be served and hilarious hi-jinx will ensue. Can't wait for the video!

3. More likely, blair aka bush's poodle will take to talking with his
mouth full, groping female heads of state so bush doesn't look so bad. Blair is NOT interested in changing anything, he is coming to ensure his promised seat with the Carlyle Group is not endangered.

5. Fine, I'll be driving south so I won't be able to see/hear anything
And I *won't* be watching any news for the next week after. I'll enjoy some make believe in Orlando instead of the disgusting fantasy in D.C.

10. Hardly ever the other way round....
Bush meets Blair at 10 Downing Street. Always Blair travels to Bush. I guess that's how a paperboy job works.

11. Didn't Blair just make his "final" White House visit?
It was supposed to be his farewell. Maybe he's coming to pick up his already awarded Congressional Medal of Honor.

16. Hitler meets Mussolini
and when the Fuehrer met Il Duce, they didn't waste time in Orwellian newspeak as Bush and Blair invariably always do.
