First Stop: Kiev

This week, President Bush began his Tour de' Eastern Europe.

First stop: Kiev, where he sampled the hospitality and reiterated support for Ukraine's NATO membership action plan.

Never willing to miss an opportunity for self-promotion, Ukraine's communists staged a demonstration in protest of the visit. But that's not all. Communist MP Leonid Hrach told reporters that the party also "decided to set up an international tribunal to bring Bush to account for all his crimes against humanity."

And to think, the Albanians just stole his watch.

highly nuanced policy position (photo from Jen).

I'm really glad Bush was able to darw out the Anti-America/Anti-NATO sentiment days before I arrive in Kyiv. Thanks, buddy.
