commentary, philosophy, and outright rants

The United States Secretary of State, Colin Powell has declared in regard to recent Presidential elections in the Ukraine that

“We cannot accept this result as legitimate because it does not meet international standards and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse. We have been following developments very closely and are deeply disturbed by the extensive and credible reports of fraud in the election. We call for a full review of the conduct of the election and the tallying of election results.
“During the election campaign, the Ukrainian authorities at the highest level repeatedly sent a message about the importance of free and fair elections. We deeply regret that they did not take the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to democracy and to be a model for the region and the world. It is still not too late for Ukrainian authorities to find a solution that respects the will of the Ukrainian people.”

 

Since the US Government hasn’t investigated the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse in the US Presidential elections, maybe there’s a country out there – even the Ukraine – that won’t accept Bush because, after all, his administration ‘did not take the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to democracy and to be a model for the region and the world.’

Hey, it’s still not too late for United States authorities to find a solution that respects the will of the American people.
