The President's Speech in London
While the media has been on Jacko watch, something important happened today, and also something important didn't happen.
President Bush gave an important speech. He didn't back down, he didn't beg for UN intervention.
He reminded the Western democracies of their history, and their responsibility.

It's been said that those who live near a police station find it hard to believe in the triumph of violence, in the same way free peoples might be tempted to take for granted the orderly societies we have come to know. Europe's peaceful unity is one of the great achievements of the last half-century. And because European countries now resolve differences through negotiation and consensus, there's sometimes an assumption that the entire world functions in the same way. But let us never forget how Europe's unity was achieved -- by allied armies of liberation and NATO armies of defense. And let us never forget, beyond Europe's borders, in a world where oppression and violence are very real, liberation is still a moral goal, and freedom and security still need defenders. (Applause.)

Oh yeah. And what didn't happen?
The protests.
200 showed up.
I'd post a story, but can't find any.
Funny how the Media doesn't want to cover the nonstory.....
