From the transcript of the September 22 Bret Hume interview with George Bush referring to Bush's upcoming speech to the U. N.:

"I will make it clear that I made the right decision and the others that joined us made the right decision. The world is a better place without Saddam Hussein. The U.N. is going to be - has a chance to be more effective as a result of 1441. That's the resolution that said if you don't disarm there will be serious consequences. At least somebody stood up and said this is a definition of serious consequences."

If you don't disarm there will be serious consequences? Bush is seriously going to go to the U. N. and explain to the countries of the world that the attack on Iraq represents the 'serious consequences' for Saddam's failure to disarm? There really is no hope for any of us, faced as we are with this combination of arrogance and utter stupidity.
