we'll jump, you just tell us how high..

today our prime minister jan peter balkenende has had a meeting with president bush. no doubt, jan peter had been looking forward to this like a little boy counting the days until he can sit on santa's lap.

i wasn't there myself, but apparently they talked about the global economy, the relation between europe and the united states and america's war against islam terrorism. bush wants an extension of the dutch peacekeeping mission in iraq. the dutch involvement has become more important now that spain will probably pull their troops out of iraq. dutch parliament has instructed balkenende not to make any promises.

I'm not an expert on Dutch politics but I think every country should get out of Iraq and Afghanistan right now and leave it to the U.N. who they want to send.

not America's war... Bush's war. If I was economically sound enough to leave, I would... and may anyway if he cheats his way in again in November.
