Bush banters with OBL on tv, China builds world's highest rail
While Bush and his cronies are busy wrangling with the Supreme Court, destroying Iraq and Afghanistan and exchanging play words with an a audio tape and archive image of bin Laden, China is busy doing something productive with its time and money.
Chinese President Hu Jintao has opened the world's highest railway, describing it as a "magnificent feat".Meanwhile, in Iraq . . .
The Qinghai-Tibet line boasts high-tech engineering to stabilise tracks over permafrost and sealed cabins to protect passengers from the high altitude.
China says the 1,140km (710-mile) line will bring major opportunities to a poor region.
A suicide car bombing at a crowded open-air market Saturday killed 77 people and wounded 96 in the deadliest single attack since the Iraqi government was formed six weeks ago. Other violence brought the day's toll to 92 even as authorities announced the discovery of 26 bodies.While, over in Afghanistan . . .
At least 15 people, including 12 militants, two British soldiers and their Afghan interpreter, were killed and four coalition soldiers were wounded in clashes between Taliban and Afghan-coalition forces in southern Afghanistan over the past 24 hours.The administration can't even keep sensitive VA information secure.
Is there ANYTHING this administration has done RIGHT since they were appointed?
Short answer: No.
