Well, the pentagon decided to bar companies from Germany, Canada, Russia and France from bidding on the $18.6 billion dollar reconstruction in Iraq. The reasoning is that these countries "didn't support the war!" Oh, jeez, yeah, let's bring back the "freedom fries" while we're at it.

Am I wrong in thinking that we should instead start working for better relations with the other major countries of the world? Why can't "America" set the example, and allow everyone to participate? I don't know about you, but i'm absolutely terrified of nuclear war. I don't like the fact that we are probably about to piss off the other nuclear powers of the world. This is why if President Bush gets relected I plan to get the hell out of dodge... i'll be going to a university up in Canada.

This is something that is going to come back and bite us in the ass later on. I was listening to the news, and the reporter said "Did they REALLY think we were going to allow them a piece of the pie?" Some variation of that. Well did *we* really expect the entire world to just do whatever-the-hell we said? Did we expect that they would be just as greedy as our leaders, and their people as ignorant as ours? Hell no! They knew the war in Iraq was just an American Imperialistic selfish endeavour - and they would have nothing of it. These new decisions from our leaders only aid in proving this assumption.
