    Remind me how this crap (including depriving 150,000 civilians of water and electricity) complies with ANY humanitarian principles or any part of the Geneva Conventions? The US seems to be intent on proving that it is not bound by international agreements, even those it helped draft. The assault on Fallujah undoubtedly constitutes a serious War Crime and a Crime Against Humanity. If this is the only strategy you have, you should give up. By the time things get to this stage, you've already lost.

    Well that depends. Aren't dead Iraqis a good thing?

    It helps if you call them terrorists, not Iraqis.

    Yeah. Toe the line. Leave your brain at the door. Kill. Being the President means never having to say you're sorry.

    Leave it to me! I can make this happen, but in return, Skunk must grant me land and hereditary title in the U.K., the right to collect taxes on those lands, and . . . oh yeah . . . 'prima noctae.' You know . . . the goods! :D

    You don't have to apologise if you're never wrong.

    I wouldn't rely too much on English customs as portrayed in Braveheart. I believe Droit de Seigneur is the term you're looking for. Me, I'm trying to give it up, as it's a bit un-twenty-first century - but old habits die hard... :D

    I'll take the job, though. Where do I send the CV? :cool:

    Oh, sure. Go ahead. Dash my hopes and dreams. See if I care! :D
