    Same problem, at first I thought it was the i-a-b frame messing with it but firefox and IE both refused to work. I got the video link from the source code, though.

    It ran fine for me from start to finish.

    Great clip. I`d like to see that kids full performance.

    I doubt this clip will make it into the American media any time soon. LOL.

    It`s funny how American Idol for us is just another crappy crap crap reality tv show which is there to just entertain us. For them, it`s like an escape from their ordinary lives... we suck.

    Hearing him sing gave me goosebumps, which is a good thing. With risk of starting a flame war, I`m going to stand up and say this is part of the proof that Iraq is better off because of the war.

    "...I`m going to stand up and say this is part of the proof that Iraq is better off because of the war."

    LOL!!!! That was hilarious!!! Do you know any others?

    Here`s a letter from a US soldier to his congressman: http://bellaciao.org/en/article.php3?id_...

    Excerpt: "The people here hate us and will always hate us until we go home.

    Some officer might blow smoke up the proverbial ass and say that people like us but I work with them everyday.

    They hate our interference in their government which only serves as a recruitment drive for the enemy and makes life miserable for the moderates."

    Excerpt: "The people of this land want us gone and if we support a democracy and true democratic processes then we should do as they bid and let them become a sovereign nation again."

    Aww-- hard to believe what these people are going through over there. Sometimes we forget, watching the news, that they are human too.
