Okay sure. I'm still just saying my POV of this particular situation.

Negotiations aren't always the best choice. When Al-Qaeda attacked, negotiation was out of the question. The already-issued regime change for Iraq meant that he had the right to O.K. the attack without negotiating with the opposing side.
It's the fact taht they never really attempted negotiations before the attack had begun. If they knew of the attack to being with,they would have to be negotiating wtih the Al-Quaeda.

A second issue had come up while watching CBC a week ago. The Bush family has (yes, present tense) still a "link" with the Al-Qaeda. I mean, before the attack, Bush Sr. had been pumping money into Bin Laden's pockets (as they were allies before), helping him fuel his attack. Although this is unintentional and I don't give blame to the Bush family for this, it is the fact that the Bush family still does this that's what's wrong. This makes me wonder what the heck's wrong with Bush now. (Note: I am talking about a documentary, thus the information is tentative and can be subject to the documenter's "will". Thus I only point to the facts within the documentary and not the "facts" within it.)

They went up? Well, the media stayed rather neutral on the issue, so I wouldn't know. They were getting money from Iraq, so they wanted a more peaceful negotiation to keep their change, and decided to not take immediate action. They weren't quite as inspired as us.
But either way, negotiations would have been a better idea overall even though the short-term standards is more dangerous.

From his grammer alone? That would be a secondary side-effect. It wasn't him signing a deal to hinder the free trade, it was him pronouncing the word wrong.
No, crappy treaties if I recall (I believe the "wood treatie" of free trade was horrible to the Canadians. This is one that I can recall.). We just get pissed when he doesn't know our Prime Minister's name.
