    OOC: Well it wouldnt be hard at all really, i mean someone chucked a grenade at him and the only reason it didnt kill him is because it was a dud... i know that our Prime Minister would be an easy enough target, he takes morning walks no matter where he is, must be a pain for security... not to mention the total lack of security...

    President Zentani Muhammad az-Zentani (Libya)Speech Concerning the Assassination Attempt Against President George W. Bush and current US policy

    The government of thee Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya wishes to express it's deepest sorrow for the President of the United States, George Bush, his family and the entire country. He hope this will bring increased attention to the need to combat Wahabism and Militantism by means which do not infuriate the entirety of the Middle and Near East as well as Northern Africa. The only thing that current United States Policy and their War of Terror is strengthening the resolve of such militant groups like Al Qaida, and this is in no-one's best interest.

    As such we are willing to work with the United States and their allies to create less destructive policies, particularly in hot spots such as Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan. In Iraq, for the most apparent example, thousands die in sectarian violence and they have little control of the situation in much of the populated areas of the country. Many Arab countries are willing to place their forces, who know both Arabic, costumes, and have experience fighting paramilitary groups, under their control in the region. However, as long as the west continues there current policy, no such help will be able to be utilized.

    We must take a strong stance against extremism, but not such a misconceived one as the US currently puts forward. Thank you

    all you people quoting Borat... "We pray that you will destroy Iraq so bad that not even a lizard will be able to live for the next hundred years"

    Egyptian statement concerning the assassination attempt on premier Bush

    We would like to hope for the best for President Bush. However, like our allies in Libya have stated, we hope this emphasizes the importance of changing your current foreign policy. Although ever since the Iran Contra affair, and to a lesser extent before, there as been strong anti-american sentiment in the middle east. However since your actions in Iraq it has never been so strong. Almost daily there are anti-American protests in Cairo, a very, as you would say, “westernized” city. We think that you must really reconsider your current position in the middle east and let a coalition of Middle Eastern states take over.

    Morocco joins the other nations in expressing its deepest sympathies for President Bush and the American people. Morocco too has experienced the face of terrorism and reiterates that it will remain a staunch ally in the war on terror.

    It also hopes that this incident will not further damage the American people's (ooc: and their American wallets') view of Islamic countries and that they will continue to tour the fine nation of Morocco.

    What? Please, Darkening, I am playing perfectly in character, so please refrain from attacking me personally - of course I want to keep my power. France, if anything, is primarily concerned with its own prestige.

    Again, refrain from the personal attacks in the NES. If you want to say something to me than say it through other venues instead of attacking the way I am playing just because your idea is unrealistic and is being shot down.

    :rolleyes:

    I was- I know its something weird- playing in character! Just because I can't stand your ego doesn't mean anything really. I just choose to do it OOC. You accused me of trying to get power, I accused you of trying to keep it. Hardly a personal attack. Second off, I never expect my idea to get support - as I said a thousand times before-and I couldn't care less about it getting "shot down."

    Take a chill pill :rolleyes:

    You'd better be careful what you say, Symph, the Patriot Act is already watching you.

    But I'm sure if you'd like to lay out in detail a possible assasination plan, the Secret Service would love to hear it. ;)

    General question Re: ESA man in space, they could really do it now with their Soyuz launchers bought from Russia. Or do you mean with their own technology (in which case 2 years is...ambitious)?

    Before you say its 'secret' thats not how science and engineering works ;), and you'll probably have to tell your populace what your doing with their money...
