"The Bulgarian nurses have been too long in captivity," Rice actually told a group in Sofia, the Bulgarian capital. No one can confirm reports of factory machines going all night, making "Free the Bulgarian Five" buttons, but I'll update you as soon as I know.
Ok, I don't wanna make light about these women. Apparently they were trying to do some good for kids with HIV, and for their trouble they end up rotting away in some shithole Qaddafi probably built to house captured American airmen who survived the plunge into the Burning Lake of Fire that was to be the Gulf of Sidra (was it "Burning Lake of Fire," or was it a "Sea of Blood"? Maybe "Burning Lake of Fire" was John Milton, not the Crazy Colonel. Anyone?). They should free these poor women.
But with everything going on in the world with Iran, Iraq, China, Russia, Condi's in Bulgaria, playing modern day Moses, telling Mad Moammar to let her nurses go? Doesn't she have some shoes to buy? Hurricane season's only a month away afterall.
Ahhh, maybe I should lighten up, enjoy the fact that the Administration's working for freedom. Or . . . maybe I should just scroll through the story and note that we also want increased access to Bulgarian military facilities, perhaps to supply additional launching points for any adventurism in Iran.
Hey, I hope Condi's efforts get these nurses out of jail, and if the Bulgarian government rewards us for our efforts by giving us access to military facilities that's good. What the hell? But, man, if this makes it any easier for us to further stretch ourselves through military action we're economically, diplomatically and logistically unfit for, then I have to say I'd prefer to see the unlucky ladies stay where they are.
