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".

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.
Meanwhile, in Iraq . . .
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.

I posted the following letter to the atimes in 2002, where I found many yanks and Indians yapping about Tibet, oh, “genocide in Tibet”……….

“Where on earth would you find a rebels plagued territory showered with such goodies like exemption from tax, exemption from major national policies like population control, heavy subsidize in education, economy ? Where else, but in Tibet of course. !
Compared to the horrible blood path in Kashmir, assam, nagaland etc., or Palestine, , or Aceh, East Timor (until 1998)etc., China ought to get a Nobel peace prize for its exemplary endearvour “to win the heart and soul of ethnic minorities” – here is a supposedly evil communist country showing the democracies the way of enlightened rule.! But in the world according to Uncle Sam, all we hear is china’s “genocidal rule” in Tibet vis a vis India’s “benign” policy in Kashmir. So China get all the flak for dangling the parrot , while India and other vaunted democracies who wield the iron fist get praise and rewarded with arms supply. “government's propaganda” is at work here alright, but guess who are the victims ?”

not long later, I was ex- communicated by the atimes. As far as I know, nobody has yet taken up my challenge, but that doesn’t stop the folks there from parroting his majesty the claim of genocide in Tibet, hell even today , they still insist on there’s an “ongoing genocide” in Tibet, [sic]

such is the awesome power of uncle sham's propaganda machine, compared to such bullshit, the socalled wmd fraud of iraq looks like child's play.
