So, I'm walking around my neighborhood Kmart, minding my own business, when I see a newspaper headline that says, "Bush to Iraq: Game Over"

This scares the crap out of me, because as a fan of computer video games the term "game over" is synonymous with death, destruction and despair, albeit in that case simulated.

So I pick up a paper and read the article and I see that the actual quote was "the game is over." That made me feel a little less scared, but instead I was filled with rage. "The game is over"? Who's his speech writer anyway, Mace Windu? (Wait, that was "This party's over." Never mind.)

As I have said, it's his rhetoric that gets me really upset. Is he saying that this has just been a *game* to him? That he's been playing around and *amusing* himself with the idea of attacking Iraq? Has this been *fun* for him? Does he think that if things go wrong he can just cross his fingers and count to ten and everything will start over? (That was for you Willy Russell fans out there.)

I know this is going to sound simplistic, but maybe Saddam Hussein wouldn't BE such a threat if Bush and his ilk would stop baiting and badgering and toying with him. I certainly do not condone terrorism, but maybe people wouldn't want to attack us so much if we would stop acting like the hero in some cheesy cowboy movie.
