Why can't this Administration be on the compassionate, moral side of issues like this? If you remember, they snubbed the same type of initiative on land mines.

I guess for those who shoot their friends in the face, the maiming of a child is not much to fret over................

OSLO, Norway - Forty-six nations adopted a declaration Friday calling for a 2008 treaty banning cluster bombs, saying the weapons kill and maim long after conflicts end and inflict "unacceptable harm" on civilians, particularly children.

Some key arms makers — including the U.S., Russia, Israel and China — snubbed the conference of 49 nations.

Hi Mike

Do you mean to tell me that the "Compassionate Conservatives" aren't what they say they are?

I just finished watching a video from Imus in the Morning show from this morning. We have the top military guy talking about the mess at Walter Reed Hospital, and what does he do? He blames the injured soldiers in the hospital for the rat and cock-roach problem!

So, it looks like we are in the same bed with Russia and China. Every time I think I can't hate Bush any more, he comes up with one more reason to escalate my feelings.

Speaking of our military and the Pentagon. I found this story today.

I just hope Bush doesn't get wind of this or they will be part of our new "coalition of the willing" long as they aren't gay chimps, we can't have that can we? (sarcasm, of course).

You are so right on, Mary Ellen, and thanks for that link. yeah, killer chimps, an answer to the dwindling ranks of our armed forces!

The Walter Reed issue is indefensible, yet, instead of standing up and taking responsibility, we get more of the "blame the victim" mentality

bring back Jimmy Carter!

If there is no profit in it for anyone, conservatives don't see the point in showing compassion.
