Why Should Bush Go To Britain? 

Two Canadians differ on whether President Bush's visit to Britain will help or hurt him.

Mark Steyn is thinking really hard why would President Bush want to visit the UK and give the opposition the chance to shrill out questions like "How we lost Britain?"

Adam Yoshida (ah yes my old high school classmate) thinks that President Bush can turn against the anti-war protesters, but he would have to face them head-on and call their bluff.

I think that Yoshi can be right (and I certainly wish that he is), but it would take an immense amount of political guts on the part of the President. Otherwise, it might indeed be handing a can of gas to the pyromaniacal opposition.
