Freedom On The March

Ah the magic touch of George Bush. Today he gave another one of those "freedom is on the march" speeches, this time at the UN. From CNN.com:

President Bush challenged world leaders to do more to build democracy in the Middle East in an address at the United Nations in New York on Tuesday.

Bush used a noontime speech to the General Assembly to ask U.N. members for help in fighting extremism in the Middle East.

"From Beirut to Baghdad, people are making the choice for freedom," Bush told the General Assembly.
It's a shame that choice doesn't extend all the way to the relatively stable country of Thailand, where a military coup is now occurring. Just saying, might have mentioned it.
