Quotes of the Day

*But if you can't handle the change too well, don't worry the ubiquity of poverty still prevails. Booya!

Condoleezza Rice, U.S. Secretary of State, on the conflict between Russia and Georgia:
"This is not 1968 and the invasion of Czechslovakia, where Russia can invade its neighbour, occupy a capital, overthrow a government and get away with it. Things have changed."
