So now Iraqis are looting priceless artifacts, destroying those they don't steal, and burning down libraries full of irreplaceable ancient texts. About looting and violence in general, Donald Rumsfield--who has quickly become the most powerful man in the Cabinet--glibly states that "Free people are free to make mistakes and commit crimes and do bad things." (Guess that means we Americans aren't free anymore.) And the Bush Administration is rattling its sabers again, this time towards Syria.
In many political cartoons, Dubya has been portrayed as a cowboy à la John Wayne. I think he should now be portrayed by a different John Wayne character--Attila The Hun.
