I have been silent for a while. The situation throughout the world, though, seems to be getting worst. The nightmare in Iraq continues. I just heard on France24 (http://www.france24.com) that there has been an explosion inside the Green Zone in Baghdad. The explosion seems to have been in the Iraqi Parliament Building Restaurant. Earlier, a major bridge was blown up. Yet, we're being reminded that the "surge" is working. I am trying to be optimistic, but it is tough!!!
The President has forgotten that he is not a King. Harry Reed reminded him not too long ago.
