Prince Charles' Legacy

I'm not all about news on here -- I only write stuff that interests me, and this headline caught my eye and kind of irked me. I can't get to the story on the Telegraph that I saw on Drudge, but I think it's timely that Prince Charles is meeting with George W. Bush about the merits of Islam in the wake of the attack and beheadings of the Christian schoolgirls in Indonesia. Islam is a religion of peace, but sometimes it's more than one piece -- like a piece here and a piece a few kilometers away -- like the girls' heads. I honestly understand that many Muslims are nothing like the barbarians that commit such horrible atrocities. But I don't think it's the peaceful Muslims that GWB and people like me have a problem with. It really has absolutely nothing to do with the religion, IMO. It's what the bad people are doing in the name of their religion. Actually, it really doesn't matter what their motives are -- I just want terrorists stopped.

So Prince Charles is trying to accomplish what now? I'm pretty sure he is trying to build a legacy for himself. He would probably be more sucessful if he had an ounce of charisma. I also saw that he's been saying something about global whining -- I mean warming. Sigh. It seems that in his attempt to make himself relevant, he should have maybe picked some other stuff to talk about on his visit. I'm pretty sure that mainstream America isn't going to be too impressed with either of these topics. I almost feel sorry for the guy. Nah.

Pity. His mum always struck me as a sensible sort.

I totally agree with you. She seems like a very good person with a strong character. He doesn't seem to be that much like her. Maybe I'm also bitter because I don't feel he was at all fair to Diana.

Global warming? Yeah, that sounds completely irrelevant to America. Perhaps he ought to do something more useful like go mountain biking for the duration. Islam? Why even raise the topic? Why not just nuke them to oblivion? It is pointless, of course, since GWB hasn't the magnanimity, the sensitivity, the intelligence or anything else necessary to understand why Prince Charles would want to raise these topics. Diana?! So just like people used to obsess over Monica while Bin Laden was busily plotting, you guys can obsess over someone else's marriage while Iraq goes to hell in a handbasket. Not to mention the global environment! Thank God we elect our rulers in England, rather than get somebody's idiot son chosen for us by a collection of judges.

Well Tom, everyone is entitled to his/her opinion.
