Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

That's Aznarite concern trolling - everyone knows Bush is an asshole and influence in the EU Council counts for much more.

As for the rest, see my comments in Thursday's Salon, Friday's Salon and Thursday's Open Thread. I am intensely annoyed by the attention paid to this non-event.
