Welcome to The INCESSANT RANT. On our worst day this site will embody .00000001% of the world’s opinion. Considering the world population increases by three every second, I'm going to have to persuade just under 260,000 people to agree with me daily if only to break even. I'm screwed...

You gotta know when to hold'em...

Australian Prime Minister John Howard's election win was sweet. The solid showing of the Conservatives in the both Houses of the Australian Govt. as a whole was sweeter. However, serving humble pie to The Economist for their March 2004 cover story was absolutely sachrine laced....



Their cover story was reactionary to the Socialists (yes the Socialists) reinvigorating their hold on Spains politics. I recall the happy dances done by the Democrats here in the US. I remember José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero propping up the Euroweenie stereotype by cutting and running from Iraq at the first opportunity. And, I've read how the liberal Labor Party in Australia had vowed to pull out all 900 non-combat troops from Iraq by Christmas given the opportunity. Well, they weren't given the opportunity...and reading some of the press today on the issues is downright amusing...

Here's my favorite part of The Economist piece...

To say all that is not to say that it is wrong to vote out governments that supported the invasion of Iraq a year ago. In some cases, such as Spain, they did so against a huge majority of public opinion. In all cases, their claims that Saddam Hussein had stockpiles of dangerous weapons now look to be a blunder, a gamble or a deception. This year both George Bush himself and John Howard, Australia's prime minister, face re-election contests and next year Britain's Tony Blair is also expected to do so. There is now a real possibility that all three could follow Mr Aznar's party into defeat
