1. Many countries are now making their own decisions and not bowing...
to the strong arm tactics of the US under the bush administration. So much damage has been done by bushco it makes you wonder if it will ever be the same again for the US.

2. Uh, oh - Dubya's gonna have a war in his back yard on two fronts
I've been reading articles about the Battle of Stalingrad and how Hitler spread himself too thin and didn't take the weather into account.

Just his luck he'll decide to invade Canada in February. Do tanks run well in 40 below weather?

3. Boy Oh Boy
Did he ever change his tone. Not a couple of days ago he was talking about building strong rules into NAFTA to prevent such things from happening. He must have learned a little bit about NAFTA!

Mexican president pledges to support Canada on NAFTA panel decisions

VANCOUVER (CP) - Mexico, Canada's other NAFTA partner, gave its strongest backing yet Friday to Canada's position in the softwood lumber trade dispute with the United States.

On the final day of his Canadian visit, President Vicente Fox said repeatedly Mexico fully supported Ottawa's demand that the dispute-resolution process of the North American Free Trade Agreement be respected.

Although he never mentioned lumber directly, Fox first told B.C. business executives Friday morning, then a luncheon of Canadian and American business and political heavyweights hosted by Martin, that "Mexico fully supports Canada's position to make sure that the decisions of the NAFTA panels in the settlement of disputes are upheld."

"I believe the position and statement I've just made is sufficiently clear," Fox said when asked to clarify if he was talking about softwood.
