A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Thursday, December 11, 2003 International law?: Bush is standing by his decision on barring certain "allies" from being primary contractors rebuilding a country they didn't think was important enough to liberate from a brutal tyrant.
German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder apparently made some comments that "international law must apply to awarding of contracts."
International law? International law dictates how the American taxpayers money is spent in a country Americans died liberating? International law has some valid claim that directs the United States to shovel some contracting money Germany's way?
Bush's reply when informed of the possibility that Schroeder was seeing a lawyer was perfect.
