Just when you think Victor Davis Hanson can’t do any better, he writes something like this.

Iraq and Terrorism Part 2

From Janes.com. No better source for defense information.

Realize that until our forces get into Iraq and are able to look around, all evidence is based on conjecture and supposition.

Many in the antiwar movement appear more willing to believe Saddam Hussein than George Bush. Many are the same people who were willing to believe Bill Clinton right to the end….

Soon, Swift and Short

A wonderful article from The Sun of London.

A few of my favorite quotes:

One of the first casualties of the conflict — apart from Saddam — is likely to be French President Jacques “The Worm” Chirac.

Relations between America and France are icy after Chirac’s attempts to sabotage UN moves to disarm Saddam.

In a blistering phone call last week, President George Bush told the posturing Frenchman: “President Chirac, we will not forgive and we will not forget.”

Leaders are being reminded of the huge sums in US aid which could be at risk if they vote with France.

Others who have stashed billions of corruptly-gained dollars in Swiss banks have been warned that American intelligence agencies know their account numbers. Heh, heh heh.

Look for the heading above to skip around and find the latest.

By the way, I’m still working on getting the ongoing email debate on the site. stay tuned…..

Bush as Anti-Clinton? This is a reasonably well balanced report on Bush’s faith. It’s been turned around by the talking heads all weekend into some kind of threat. It’s not. We had a man with no morals and no faith to speak of in the White House. It’s good to have his opposite now.
