Slow to react, until it seemed he had to to save face, that Bush et al have seen the bright side of this is somehow predicable, and, if it wasn't for the horror of it all, there would be some sort of bizarre comedy in their behaviour. but there isn't..... what the US miliary is doing in Aceh is amazing and the generosity of it's citizens, wonderful, but the attempts by the US government to put a tag on it's aid is shameful. Then again what else would you expect.
