Just in case you haven't noticed, our president is a blithering idiot.
"For the sake of peace, he must disarm. There are inspectors inside the country now and the inspectors are there not to play a game of hide and seek. They're there to verify whether or not Mr. Saddam Hussein is going to disarm," the president said. -- from AP.

Funny, I thought they were there to inspect for weapons. I have been opposed to war with Iraq for several reasons: The casualties it will cause to Iraqis and to our military personnel, the possibility that it will spill into a larger war, the likely increase in terrorism, the continued overuse of automobiles made possible by US control of Gulf region oil fields, the blatant deception and hypocrisy of the Bushies (claiming it is part of the war on terror, attacking Iraq when Pakistan is more dangerous and Saudi Arabia more guilty), the renewed brain-dead jingoism of the American public, and probably a couple of other reasons I can't recall now. But there is one additional reason climbing my list which I should probably be ashamed of, but I don't seem to be right now. Bush wants this war so bad that he is going to cry if he doesn't get it. And I really, really, really want him to cry.
