Bring Them On

"Washington -- President George W. Bush Wednesday indignantly rejected complaints that he had exaggerated Saddam Hussein's prewar arsenal and issued a defiant challenge to Iraqis who attack U.S. occupation forces: "Bring them on." "

Ghastly sound bite. There are American kids, and some hapless Iraqi bystanders, getting killed along with the evil unreconstructed Iraqi militants. The message is fine - the US will not get run out of Iraq the way we were in Somalia. But the President shouldn't be saying it this way.

Now, questions no one else will ask: Gephardt derided the "phony macho rhetoric". So, when did Gephardt become a critic of the French fashion shows?
