    Far from only this administration. We are still waiting on the apology from Bush about the Iraq war..

    Why are you waiting for an apology? Did you have holiday property in Baghdad?

    I didn't think so.
    You're asking me to prove a negative? I thought you were a better debater than that, SN.

    I'm guessing that US-German relations aren't in such a good state at the moment. The idea that spying on your friends is just business as usual came as a surprise to Angela Merkel.

    What should be Germany's next step?

    What should the US reaction to this expulsion be? An apology? Or reprisal?
    She wants you to believe it's a surprise. The latest spy to be discovered was a double agent.

    Ok... you step into the kitchen then. It's oh so easy to throw stones. How about you step up to the plate and make a solution. What would Grant, president of the USA, do about this situation of the El Salvadorian kids who've come across our border?

    I would have secured the border long ago and not advertised free food. The feds have got the northern border sealed tight, which is much longer (and where Canadians now enjoy a higher standard of living), but can't do anything about the much shorter southern border.

    Doesn't that strike you as rather strange?
