Bush turns up empty-handed in Pakistan
Poor old George Bush, things just seem to go from bad to worse for the US president. First he gets hit on the shoulder with a tennis ball while attempting to play cricket in Pakistan ("I don't quite have the skills yet") and now the local press is angry that he didn't bring them any sweets: "Pakistanis generally feel that he has not even given a lollipop to Pakistan" one local newspaper cried. Come on George if you are going to trade nuclear secrets with their neighbour and bitter enemy at least bring them a Hershey bar or something.
