tough decisions

the dalai lama receives the prestigious US congressional gold medal. here is the news report on rediff and fox news.

this is a list of all the awards and recognitions he has received. almost half a century of awards and recognition.
the dalai lama is an incredible person - there is no questioning that.
but to receive any award from bush... i wonder if he ever thought about.

and today bush is at his cowboy best on iran. world war 3 indeed... iran rebuts as expected.
the growing russian connections may be unsettling bush.
ok ok, i digress.

the credibility and support that this gives the tibetan cause is undeniable. this potential leverage over china probably weighed his mind.

tough decisions.
