Help For The Weary

The next post pokes through every corner of the 2003 State of the Union Address to see whether President Bush was describing Iraq as an imminent threat, or an ongoing, potential threat. It is (IMHO) pretty good, in a "too much free time" sort of way, but I understand that some of you have lives to live. So, here is the soundbite:

Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent. Since when have terrorists and tyrants announced their intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike? If this threat is permitted to fully and suddenly emerge, all actions, all words, and all recriminations would come too late. Trusting in the sanity and restraint of Saddam Hussein is not a strategy, and it is not an option.

Now, you can skip right past the long post by scrolling maniacially.

Have a great weekend.
