Here we go again. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š I hope they can do SOMETHING. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š i'm not looking for world-changing things. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š Just something concrete. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š All the US says is "sorry" and they never do anything. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š
Actually...i'd like to hear them say sorry, that would be nice...
