International Immaturity

The news coming from Washington is getting more and more surreal as the days go by. Just in the last couple of weeks, the American government sold the biggest American ports to the United Arab Emirates, a country with clear ties to Al-Qaeda, with the added possibility that Bush didn't even know about the deal; vice-president Dick Cheney, who possibly was drunk at the time, shot a 78-year-old man in the face while hunting; and Bush has allowed different oil companies to avoid making $7B in royalty payments over the next few years. Meanwhile, Iraq is on the verge of a civil war, and people around the world are burning buildings because of a handful of political cartoons. I feel like I'm living in a world populated only by children. International events are dominated by very immature people.
