    Following is an interpretation of the letter sent to the UN accepting the new UN resolution.

    Your Excellency,

    You may recall the huge clamor fabricated by the President of the United States administration, in the biggest and most wicked slander against Iraq, supported in malicious intent, and spearheaded in word and malevolence, by his lackey Tony Blair, when they disseminated the claim that Iraq has perhaps produced, or was on its way to produce, nuclear weapons, during the time when the United Nations inspectors had been absent from Iraq since 1998...

    Well, it's refreshing to see such constructive language in an official dilpomatic communique.

    Tariq Aziz, don't let the grandfatherly look fool you, used this kind of language and worst with the first inspectors.

    Now I know why Bonoir and that other knucklehead was visiting Iraq.

    They must have been consultants for the Iraqi speechwriters.

    They sure have a way with words. In the "parliamentary debate" on the UN Resolution this week Saddam was described by one of the deputies as a "fighter, mujahid, a man of values, of unlimited wisdom, of extraordinary ability to measure events, of sharp vision, of courage in running the struggle and leading the confrontation, of devotion in leading the Iraqi people to safety on the secure side of the sea where the sunny future lies".
    Gosh. He's probably good with the ladies as well. Why leave that out?

    I don't know about anybody else, but I find this diatribe incredibly difficult to read, what with the 142-word sentences and all.

    Perhaps instead of bombing them, we could drop copies of "Elements of Style" - certainly aiding those responsible for communicating with the rest of the world could only be beneficial to us all...
