DURST: Clinton and the Persian Gulf

The current slight of hand the Clinton administration is busy busy busy distracting us with, is maintaining it has the right to attack Iraq in order to force Saddam Hussein to open sites to weapons inspectors based on Security Council resolutions. And also because we're way bigger and we've done it before. The unwritten "Big Dog" chapter of the New World Order.Article 41, which was used to impose sanctions against Iraq in August of 1990, said "Saddam is madder than a coyote in an elevated cage over a yard full of wounded bunnies and we're going to kick his raggedy ass back to Jurassic Dorkland", or something to that effect.Throwing vodka on the fire is Boris Yeltsin who somehow sustained verticality long enough to warn US activities in Iraq could cause a world war and accused Clinton of "acting too loudly. Too loudly". That is, unless he still has some old KGB Oval Office bugs and is referring to earlier events in which the term "intern" may have some significance.Meanwhile the Persian Gulf is now so crowded with aircraft carriers, they run the risk of bouncing off of each other like inner tubes in a bathtub. And over at CNN they're engrossed in composing the new theme song to "Persian Gulf Ii, The Sequel. This Time Its Personal".
