as We know it — and I feel fine!

We may very well be bombing Iraq as I post this. Actually we’ve been bombing that country on and off for some time now. But this time out it will be official as Dubbya and company vow to take out Saddam Hussein. Just the way they took out Osama Bin Ladin.

Of course it’s not about those cardboard villians at all. Remember that scene in Reds where they announce that John Reed is going to explain “What this war is all about” and Warren Beatty gets up from the banquet table and simply says “Profits”? Same as it ever was.

Meet the New Boss, same as the Old Boss? Well not entirely. He’s dumber and far more ruthless than before.
