Freedom Not Forgotten!!!
Ask yourself which means more...the support of recently liberated peoples of Eastern Europe who know the importance of freedom and democracy...OR...the opposition of Old Europe peoples who have forgotten the joy of liberation and who are entangled in the Oil-For-Food-Scandal?
Georgians burst police lines to welcome Bush

Surging crowds broke through police lines in Georgia at a square where President Bush was expected to speak today.
Thousands of people poured on to Freedom Square despite strict security, with barricades smashed to the ground.
Georgia's US-educated president, Mikhail Saakashvili, said as many as 150,000 people had gathered to hear Mr Bush.
Many Georgians hope his visit will increase pressure on Russia to withdraw the Soviet-era military bases it still maintains on Georgian territory and end its backing for two separatist regions.
