You Don't See This Every Day

You don't see this every day, at least you don't see it in America:

Indian Home Minister Shivraj Patil has submitted his resignation taking "moral responsibility" for the Mumbai attacks that killed nearly 200 people.

The move comes amid growing pressure on the Indian government to explain why it was unable to prevent the strikes.

There is no word on whether Mr Patil's resignation has been accepted.

Minister 'quits' over Mumbai attacks

Contrast this with the Bush Administration, which was caught with its pants down on 9/11. No one resigned or even apologized. No one resigned in protest over the decision to invade Iraq, and it took Rumsfeld several years to resign after the utter failure of his strategy there.

Yet in India, a public official offers to resign for making a comparatively minor mistake.

Makes you wonder what continent the "Land Of The Brave" is located on, doesn't it?
