Today's Good News

In a story that barely made any news, the Bush Administration scored an immense victory for all of humanity when it was able to, through diplomacy, reach an accord to end a 20 year civil war between the Sudanese North and South.

This accord should be celebrated around the world by those who claim to be advocates of human rights. So far in three years this administration (admonished as war mongering by the elites in the media, the Democratic party, universities, and Europe) has accomplished more for the peoples of Africa through diplomacy than their critics have ever accomplished in decades of lip service. Actions do indeed speak louder than words.
