"We cannot accept this result as legitimate because it does not meet international standards," said Powell at a news conference in Washington. "We call on all sides to achieve a fair and just outcome without force."
To absolutely no one's surprise, Canada has made yet another public statement condemning the election results. The reason we did not do this three weeks ago is because our new helicopters aren't finished yet and the Atlantic is very big and it takes foreign aid some time to reach us. ;)
So, just out of curiosity, what exactly *are* these "international standards", and, uh... did November 2nd meet them? Not inciting, just... wondering.
Also, is it just me, or is Colin Powell really, really creepy-looking? Somehow I expect I'm realizing this late in the game.
EDIT: They're talking about whether or not to send in the military to disperse the demonstrators. Oh. Yes. Now THAT will go over well. o.O
