More dodgy ads.

Waddafark was THIS advert doing in the banner above this fine Blog? I had assumed there was a young lad or lassie sitting at a desk reading all the Blogs and then hand-picking ads to suit the content ... apparently not.

Whereas, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Tony Blair, has vigorously supported the United States in the disarmament of Iraq;

Whereas, the United Kingdom is a strong and loyal ally to the United States;

Whereas, Prime Minister Tony Blair has committed substantial military forces of the United Kingdom to the current action in Iraq;

The American people extend their heartfelt thanks to Prime Minister Tony Blair for his courage and leadership; and

Extend their deep appreciation to the United Kingdom and the men and women of its armed forces.

I think our thoughts should be transmitted to the lad.

"Messages will be printed on paper and shipped weekly to the Prime Minister's office at 10 Downing Street in London."

I created this website because it seemed to me important that Americans said thank you to Prime Minister Tony Blair and the British people.

When the call came to stand and be counted, the United Kingdom came to our side.

The other ad on the banner links to a religious site which proclaims ... "One child at a time, one child at a time is our mission." and "Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me."

I wonder if they appreciate the irony of these missionary statements given the treatment of many children by officials of various religions.
