Bush recognises independent Kosovo

US President George W. Bush on Monday recognised Kosovo's declaration of independence, saying:"The Kosovars are now independent."

"It's something I've advocated along with my government," Mr Bush said in a live interview aired on NBC television from Arusha, Tanzania. A formal US recognition of Kosovo's independence was expected later on Monday.

Oh look, happy, smiling native dancing girls with only Dubya's mug to cover their native bosoms.

Of course, if Bush was looking at their chests no-one would know whether it was out of lust or just narcissism...
