OBL better run

It looks likes the U.S. has been able to swing China and Russia into a referral to the Security Council. Despite my misgivings about the usefulness of sanctions and my deep suspicion of W.s motives, I have to say the more Ahmadinejad does stupid stuff and the more the Iranian government as a whole becomes more belligerent, I start to see a need for some sort of action.

To her credit, Condi has managed to get the Europeans all on the same page and it looks like we might be having some sort of rapprochement with them after all this trouble over Iraq. See, W, you don't have to bully people all the time.

That is all good. Of course, maybe it's not all what it seems. It could be, too, that we're just threatening to leak some info on what the French and Germans knew about all those CIA kidnap flights.

Saudis and Pakistanis to fight terror. Finally!

I have no worries about anything,anymore. AFP reports:

Saudi King Abdullah held talks with Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz on a wide range of issues said a joint statement issued at the end of the monarch's two-day visit to Pakistan. "There is a need to intensify and coordinate bilateral, regional and international cooperation to combat terrorism and to eradicate its root causes," the statement said. The two Islamic nations said they would cooperate to "fight the menace of terrorism and other international crimes such as money laundering, drugs trafficking and arms smuggling in a sustained and comprehensive manner," it said.

Boy, I feel safer already, don't you? You know when these two guys are on the job OBL better run!
