President Gore Offers To Fix Brazilian Airports July 19, 2007Posted by chuckwh in News and politics.
President Gore today said that the United States, flush with cash from an unprecedented economic miracle that began with the Clinton administration, would help build the infrastructure necessary to improve Brazilian airspace.
“I say today that Americans can get out of our comfort level and extend our remarkable resources to other nations,” said Gore in a speech before a Himalayan singing group.
“We can extend air strips, and create agreements to allow others to,” said Gore, alluding to the various, nearly fifty-year old hold ups preventing improvements in Brazilian airports like Congonhas Airport, where a recent accident took place.
Brazilian bloggers are abuzz about the real cause of the accident, but most airline pilot blogs say that the real cause of the accident is a short runway that runs nearly 700 shorter than most major international airport runways.
“It’s my fault” some close to Gore are saying he said in describing his reaction.
“Loss of life is unacceptable to this president,” said one source. “He believes the great fortune harvested over these years of prosperity should be extended to our neighbors.”
