Bush In Albania

It looks like President Bush has found a country that welcomes him: Albania.

Albania is by all accounts very pro-American. It was an American president, Woodrow Wilson, who arranged for Albania’s independence after the first world war. And it was another American president, Bill Clinton, who intervened against Serbia’s ethnic cleansing of Albanians in Kosovo. Bush is popular in Albania mainly because of what his predecessors have done for that people and country.

After six years of Bush, it’s nice to be reminded that the United States has at times done some good in this world. Ironically, it’s Bush’s trip to Albania that is the occasion for the reminder.

I'd love to hear from you. Comments make my day.
