Clashes in Athens as Rice visits


Athens police have fired teargas during a clash with anti-war demonstrators protesting against a visit by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Some protesters hurled petrol bombs, sticks and stones in return. Athena, the goddess of wisdom and military victory, and also the patron of the city of Athens, rose from the rocky ground and was seen hurling lightning bolts at Condi as she held on tightly to Bush's head. Condi remained unperturbed during the entire event, but then Athena did not know that the vampire Condi is invulnerable to lightning bolts.

"We were just trying to bring Democracy to Greece, but these people don't even know the meaning of the word.....Oh, you say this is a Greek word?" Condi quipped to reporters.

Ms Rice is also meeting Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis as part of a five-day trip to Europe that also includes Turkey and Bulgaria.

Bush said when he took office that he was a uniter and not a divider. He has succeeded completely, and the world is united in hating him and the US.

Athena has been missing Condi with her lightening bolts, but I hope her aim is getting better.

Condi is lightning resistent, it's the hair spray she uses. Her workout routine is gear toward helping her leap worlwide protests in a single bound

Let me be serious for just a moment and lament about the grevious harm that this Admin. has done to the image of America. It didn't take them too long to pull all the considerable good will down to ground and, things being what they are, it certainly will take a lot longer to get back where it used to be. What a shame!
