This from our friends across the pond.

"George Bush told the Prime Minister two months before the invasion of Iraq that Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran and North Korea may also be dealt with over weapons of mass destruction, a top secret Downing Street memo shows."

In a similar vein, again from the BBC ("Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs.")

""President Bush said to all of us [Palestinian negotiator Nabil Shaat]: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan. And I did, and then God would tell me, George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq ... . And I did.'"

Ulp... that's scary... let's hope it's -- shall we say -- an overstatement rather than a quote.

We have met the enemy, and it ain't us. Or them. Or Him.

Judy,

Otherwise, I fear we will end up like that python in the Everglades...
