Spring springs

While enjoying the clean and clear air of the Cucamonga Mountains in California the President of the USA is in South America.

Reputed, reliable and unbiased news agency CBS reported from Brazil:
“Bush noted total U.S. aid to South America has doubled since he took office to $1.6 billion last year. Some Latin American critics say Bush's claim is misleading because it is based on using 2001 as the starting point, and U.S. aid had dipped sharply that year, setting an artificially low benchmark.”

Meanwhile, an important meeting took place yesterday in Baghdad, Iraq, where Iranian and American representatives were facing each other.
Again, news agency CBS, reported:
“During the talks, U.S. envoy David Satterfield pointed to his briefcase which he said contained documents proving Iran was arming Shiite Muslim militias in Iraq.
“Your accusations are merely a cover for your failures in Iraq," Iran's chief envoy Abbas Araghchi shot back.

Spring officially starts March 21.
But ahead of that, in the valleys of the Cucamonga Mountains, nature is rebirthing itself again.
There is a lot going on in our world.
Maybe even a political turnaround.
Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez might be right.
According to news agency CBS he said:
"The U.S. president today is a true political cadaver," Chavez said, alluding to Bush's waning years in office. "What the little gentleman from the north now exudes is the smell of political death and in a very short time he will be converted into cosmic dust and disappear from the stage."

Let’s allow ourselves to let go of the daily skirmishes of life and enjoy what nature is showing us.
A new Spring.
New life.
A new beginning.
And conclude this is politically needed as well.

I'm not sure how anyone can believe CBS, or NBC, NPR, or for that matter ABC are reliable news sources, or are unbiased is beyond me. At least European news media admit their bias. U.S. media deny their bias. Their obvious bias gets in the way of their reliability. All news services have a bias, including, but not limited to Fox News.
