Aussie politicians snub Gorbachev:
Australia's two main political leaders have snubbed a major international security, energy and environment summit headed by former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev.Was it something he said?
Mr Gorbachev will co-chair the Earth Dialogues conference in Brisbane next week... Other Nobel laureates coming to Brisbane include Irish peace activist Betty Williams, Iranian human rights activist Shirin Ebadi and Argentinian activist Aldolfo Perez Esquivel.
"Americans have a severe disease — worse than AIDS. It’s called the winner’s complex."That's not all, of course. I never thought I would be linking to Rush Limbaugh, but it just goes to show that Bush's USA is now completely in the hands of people who never liked Gorbachev, never trusted him and never wanted to deal with him. Sure, they were around back in Reagan's day, but the disease was relatively contained.
