Sure, let's abandon that mission altogether. Or, how the UN became the Muppet Show, and how we switch it on and off as we damn well please. I mean, very useful when it comes to providing excuses for weapons inspections with regimes that do not cooperate, but very convenient as well when we can just turn around and walk away when it comes to scrutinizing allies. But hey, it's not like Ariel didn't want to, he just wanted to be scrutinized on his terms. A bit like taking an exam but bringing your own teacher. Nothing wrong with that, is there? I'm sorry, and I forgot: Saddam really is a bad boy, isn't he? He sent his big bad army to his poor and defenseless neighbor, boohoohoo. Of course what Ariel is doing in Palestina is much different, isn't it? Oh, the Palestinians do not HAVE an army to defend themselves? And there is no international coalition coming to their rescue? OK, but Saddam didn't have Kuweiti suicide bombers making a big mess at home did he now? And well, on the other hand, even if they wanted to, there wasn't a lot the Kuweiti youngsters could get very upset about and blow themselves up by the dozens, like, at random, the right to an own country? Violations of UN resolutions for 35 years? But honestly, even if we admitted Israel might be a little out of line, there is nothing we can do against a country's souvereignty. No, we respect that. Well, at least if you're an ally. No, and honestly, watching CNN and David Letterman will do, won't it, for our peace of mind? Kermit?
