bombing them, huh? seems kinda boring. i would have preferred a WWF Battle Royale between the al-jazeera anchors and the Fox News anchors.

I have to wonder about this. Could Blair really convince Bush if his mind was set? Unless he used a "Jesus-told-me-not-to" argument, I don't know what would have worked.
