Thank You Blair, Bush and Wolfowitz....Victory for the Poor!!!

[Q]LONDON — Building on an accord between Britain and the United States, finance ministers of the world's wealthiest nations agreed Saturday to wipe out $40 billion in debt owed by 18 of the world's poorest countries as part of a major assault on global poverty.

The decision by the Group of 8, the world's leading industrial nations and Russia, fulfilled a decades-old dream of anti-poverty activists, who have argued that payments on old loans drain the limited resources of the world's poorest nations, most of which are in Africa, keeping millions of people mired in poverty.[/Q]

Thank goodness for liberals like you who have a sense of humor and can cross through party rhetoric.

I think Dreadsox is waiting for people to complain about the title of this thread. He used the key liberal complain word - "Bush" and threw in "Wolfowitz" for bonus points.

I don't mind thanking everyone that gets the job done!

Well, don't the three of them deserve some credit for coming around?

There have been enough threads in the last two months bashing Wolfowitz, and the President.....

Why are most so reluctant to give them credit when they do something "good"?

I don't care who it is, the fact that this was done is extraordinary and I'm really happy.

It makes it harder to keep up the fight based on stereotypes...

Agreed. Democrat or Republican, if this kind of work can be done, I don't care who it is.
