Anyone who thinks it takes nerve to believe we have no right to simply
make a colony of Iraq clearly is not open to reason.  This is too
astonishing to be answered.

If the UN obtained some backbone, maybe it would be possible to bring at
least a minimal amount of civilized comfort, education and democracy to
all of the world.  What are they still doing in New York anyway?  And did
you hear the French today?  They will veto any motion that puts us and the
British in charge of post-war Iraq. What nerve.  We get rid of the tyrant
and his weapons with the blood of our young men and then they expect to
take over.  They must have an overabundance of wine since we're not buying
it anymore.  Don't they get it.  Their veto means nothing to us anymore.
