The poor poor Amreekis trying to shape everything in the world in their own image! Aesop's Fables show that the single most glaring sign of a people struck by mediocrity is to try and make everyone else like themselves.

New Afghan parliament
THE new Afghan parliament, dominated by warlords and drug barons, was inaugurated at a ceremony attended by US Vice-President Dick Cheney. It is the only parliament in the world whose members were elected as individuals, not as party members. So the new house from the very first day seems to be in troubled waters. Mohammad Yunus Qanooni who was runner-up to Hamid Karzai in last year’s presidential elections was elected chairman of the Lower House, defeating Sayaf, a supporter of Karzai, by 122 votes to 117.

It is noteworthy that Mr Qanooni disputed the presidential election results as “illegitimate” and even called for new votes. It was after intense negotiation by American and UN diplomats that the former accepted the election results. Mr Qanooni, who was then a member of the powerful Northern Alliance, formed his own party, the Afghanistan National Coordination Front, as the first opposition to the government.

Mr Qanooni’s election is a defeat for the Karzai camp in parliament. It is feared that the new parliament will eventually shake down into two main groups. Karzai is the only leader. If defeated at any stage, the West will pack up and go home.

Welcome to Democracy, where you get to choose the crooked politicians in charge.

What can we do? The nice ones seem to be too happy with their otherwise lives.

(But what a nice way of putting it in your great old Russian sense of humour!)
