I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Season's Greetings to everyone! May you have a wonderful holiday time and the very best for next year - 2007!

This morning I got up and got the paper at the door, turned on the coffee and computer. But it is Christmas day so we had lots of other things to do. What a great day! Friends, family, food and drink, Christmas is a wonderful time. However, we are lucky! Much of the rest of the world is not so lucky. The Bush administration has helped create a world which is very unstable. In parts of the world right now it is a world at war. We need an Al Gore administration to repair the damage done by Bush and his minions. Over a fresh cup or two of coffee I took a look at how much is going on in the world.

In Colombia the (Farc) have waged a long term guerrilla war.

In Colombia - (Hostages) more people/civilians are taken hostage in Colombia than anywhere else in the world.

Democratic Republic of Congo has an on going civil war. About 3 million people have died so far.

Uganda has the Lord's Resistance Army fighting the Government. This has been going on for a long time.

Somalia, Ethiopian & Eritrea are involved in a major war now. This could really turn into a terrible situation for the West.

Israel and the Palestinians – of course this situation continues and the Bush administration has done nothing in 6 years to help the state of affairs.

Iraq – We all know about this war. When will our soldiers come home and we can repair our army, men and equipment?

Nagorno Karabakh, Azerbaijan – this is a land dispute between two countries that still has lots of refuges.

Georgia – separatists want to break away from Georgia.

Chechnya – Again, separatists want to break away from Russia.

Russia – May become a bigger problem if it does not act responsibly.

China – Major world economy now, may exert influence as its military and economy grow. Can we keep China inside the box after the next world Olympics?

Afghanistan – You know about this problem. Bush and Rice took their eye off the ball. This is a major problem and the West can’t lose here. A lot is at stake.

Nepal – Communist rebels are fighting to overthrow the government of Nepal.

Burma – Continuing fighting so who's fighting who? The Karen National Union (KNU) is fighting for independence.

Laos – A legacy from Henry Kissinger there’s an ethnic Hmong have been waging a low-level war against the Laos Government.

Philippines – lots of islands and open land is ideal for various groups to be fighting the government.

All of these places are at war today! Thank your lucky stars that you are in a location which has peace!

Condoleezza Rice needs to take a moment and reflect on this administration’s abysmal performance on improving the state of the world. The Bush policies have created a more dangerous world after 6 years of being in office. Notice, I did not even mention Iran or North Korea, which are both playing around with nuclear weapons!

Al Gore is the only politician who has the experience and wisdom to deal with all these dangerous situations. We need Al Gore to run in 2008.

Again, Merry Christmas.

There is no hope in sight.....
No one is willing to take on the real problem here, right on your street.
Until we end the illegal drug war here at home there is no way to end the funding for all the other wars, and they are ALL DRUG RELATED. (robberies, to drive by shootings)
where else do ya get unending supply of cash.
UNCLE SAM is the biggest money laundry operation on the planet.
