Post OT: Reuters report from Belgrade

BELGRADE- Serbian president Vojislav Kostunica deployed more than 30,000
peacekeeping troops to the U.S. Monday, pledging full support to the troubled
North American nation as it struggles to establish democracy. "We must do all we
can to support free elections in America and allow democracy to gain a foothold
there," Kostunica said. "The U.S. is a major player in the Western Hemisphere
and its continued stability is vital to Serbian interests in that region."

Kostunica urged Al Gore, the U.S. opposition-party leader who is refusing to
recognize the nation's Nov. 7 election results, to "let the democratic process
take its course."

"Mr. Gore needs to acknowledge the will of the people and concede that he has
lost this election," Kostunica said. "Until America's political figures learn to
respect the institutions that have been put in place, the nation will never be a
true democracy."

Serbian forces have been stationed throughout the U.S., with an emphasis on
certain trouble zones. Among them are Oregon, Florida, and eastern Tennessee,
where Gore set up headquarters in Bush territory. An additional 10,000 troops
are expected to arrive in the capital city of Washington, D.C. by Friday.

Though Kostunica has pledged to work with U.S. leaders, he did not rule out the
possibility of economic sanctions if the crisis is not resolved soon.

"For democracy to take root and flourish, it must be planted in the rich soil of
liberty. And the cornerstone of liberty is elections free of tampering or
corruption," Kostunica said. "Should America prove itself incapable of learning
this lesson on its own, the international community may be forced to take
stronger measures."

Does this mean Warren Christopher will be arrested and taken to The Hague?

Carol Roberts pleads for leniency: "I was just following orders!"

Hmmmm. What's you're definition of "won"?

Won the most states? Won those states you campaigned in? Won those states where you gave all your supporters rides to the polls. Won 49% out of the 50% of the people who actually voted?

The candidiates agreed in advance that whoever gets the most electoral votes wins the election. That's the only "won" that matters. Hopefully, we'll see who won within the next six months or so...

Also, if a moderator wants to move this to the OT forum, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea.
