Friends, Today it grieves me to no end to see this madman Bush is actually going to go through with this. Deep inside I didn't really believe he would, given that even many big oil men are against this war, former Secretary of State James Baker among them, and so it behooved me to dig deeper for the genesis of a war that portends absolutely nothing good for anyone.
No matter what your views on President Bush's statement of upcoming

not supportive of the Colonials across the Atlantic.
