Notes on the Atrocities

Talk about cognitive dissonance. I just listened to the surprisingly pointed speeches of Kofi Annan and Brazilian President Luiz In?cio Lula Da Silva. Annan criticized unilateralism and declared that the world is at a turning point; he warned that if the precedent set by the US (whom he politely did not name) continued, the world could sink into chaos. Next, Da Silva gave a nuanced analysis of the situation facing the world in terms of economic and terrorist challenges.

Now the President's up, and his words sound like a canned stump speech being piped in from Cleveland. From 2002.

He hasn't gotten to the pitch yet, so we'll see. More after the speech--
