Sovereign Delay

From a news report about rising tensions and an escalating war of words between Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the US government, this has to be the funniest quote in the last week...

"We have partnership, we want to continue this alliance and partnership with the United States and the rest of the world, in the interest of both of us. But this has to be understood by all that Afghanistan is a sovereign country."
           — Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai in a BBC Interview, April 5, 2010

And you thought Rehman Malik et al sounded funny talking about sovereignty.

Here's Mr Sovereign in his Standard Chartered-issued sovereign uniform (note the bank colours) walking the purple carpet with his friend, not master.

From the looks of President Obama's coat, it seems he had a bit of 'dust-up' with Karzai before the photo-op. Mr Sovereign probably held him face down in the sand until he cried uncle.
