When the words don't match the music
Our living National Nightmare today before the UN:
“The Security Council was right to vow serious consequences if Iraq refused to comply,” Bush said. “And because there were consequences — because a coalition of nations acted to defend the peace, and the credibility of the United Nations — Iraq is free.”
Paul Bremer yesterday:
The Associated Press, quoting a senior U.S. official it did not identify, said Bremer would use his veto to prevent an early transfer of power and would pre-empt plans by some Security Council members who want to set up a militia to replace U.S. troops as Iraq’s primary security force.
Freedom's just another word for "we're calling the shots here, Sparky".
