Osama, you're fired 

Donald Trump, the zillionaire celebrity and reality TV star, whose world-famous hair looks like a large, sick rodent that crawled up on his head and died there, doesn't think President Bush's foreign policy has been very successful (via Damian Penny):

"The Donald has turned thumbs down on the President's war in Iraq, calling it a 'mess.'

" 'What was the purpose of the whole thing?' Donald Trump asks in an Esquire interview. 'Hundreds of young people killed. And what about the people coming back with no arms and no legs?'

" 'The Apprentice' star said it's folly to think Iraq can be turned into a 'wonderful democracy.'

The real estate baron said if he were President, Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden 'would have been caught long ago.'

" 'Tell me, how is it possible that we can't find a guy who's 6-foot-6 and supposedly needs a dialysis machine?' Trump said. 'Can you explain that one to me? We have all our energies focused on one place - where they shouldn't be focused'."
Mr Trump, how about putting your (or at least somebody else's) money where your mouth is? How's this for a new Trump-centered reality show - "The Apprentice Bounty-hunter", where Donald takes a dozen ex-military personnel and enthusiastic amateurs and directs them on the hunt for bin Laden. As the winner will already pocket the $25 million reward from the US government, this shouldn't cost Donald much. Or how about "The Apprentice: Iraq" where Donald takes under his wing twelve budding Iraqi politicians and entrepreneurs, setting them the task of getting their country back on its legs again.

It's always easier just to criticise, but Trump should surely know by now that it's better to do something constructive, particularly when you can also make a buck out of it.
