4. Huh. I think he stomped right on the word "soldier". I can't think that
would be good for his career.

6. whenever...
....governments talk austerity they mean they are going to screw the poor. Not the rich, the poor. Cost cutting and budget balancing always comes out of the hide of the poor. Bravo for the French, they are massively protesting an increase in retirement age. Here in the US know one would do that. The poor Republicans would support it.

13. Nick Robinson explains why he went off half cocked:
If you were watching the 6 O'Clock News last night, you may have seen a "Troops Out" sign on a large pole being waved behind my head.

I have a confession. After the news was over, I grabbed the sign and ripped it up - apparently you can watch video of my sign rage in full glorious technicolour on the web. I lost my temper and I regret that. However, as I explained afterwards to the protesters who disrupted my broadcast, there are many opportunities to debate whether the troops should be out of Afghanistan without the need to stick a sign on a long pole and wave it in front of a camera.
