Now game is over for Saddam Hussein. We are going to war. Do not think of effect of war on world economy. After all, Iraq has some of world's finest oil. When we win war, we would install our own Governor - General and take charge of oil. You can imagine rest of story.
Do not think of humanitarian cost. For Saddam has always gassed his own people to death. So, what if a few Iraqis die for salvation of many. Regarding soldiers that would die in battle, never mind about that. For they would have beautiful memorial tombs erected for them .And sons of war planners would lay wreaths on them, and write their epitaghs. Some would take Charles Dickens book A TALE OF TWO CITIES with them to grave yard, and copy opening lines: "It was a summer of hope. It was a winter of despair".
When Charles Dickens wrote A TALE OF TWO CITIES, however, he was not thinking of war on terror. Or wepunmassdistrucshun. But in world of James Bond, anything goes.
THE WINTER OF DESPAIR
We are ready to attack Iraq. The spy planes have done their work and we know just where to strike. So we advance with guns and bombs through torturous Iraqi desert terrain. We kill and maim as we go, and enemy decimates our soldiers, too. And we surviving soldiers press on, ever wearing our masks. Because this "mad" man that rules this evil empire could use anything on us - including chemicals and biological weapons. But alas - after all hazards, we win and disarm Iraq.
THE SUMMER OF HOPE
We celebrate our victory. The world will be a better place to live now without dangerous weapons in hands of this evil country. Israel has these weapons too, but that country is better behaved. Besides, they are God's chosen people.
The newly appointed Governor-General has just inspected his guard-of-honor, and is telling Iraqis how different this new democratic, liberal regime will be. For people will now enjoy total freedom and life will be more abundant.
We hear many wonderful Arabian Night stories. It was told of a poor Arab cattle rearer who bought a field to graze his livestock. But unbeknownst to him, field was laid with gold. And this poor shepherd now became a fabulously rich sheikh ever after.
The story strikes a semblance to our adventure. Because after we have buried thousands of our dead soldiers, and laid beautiful wreaths on their tombs, we retire to reflect on success of our mission. Suddenly, we find ourselves, champagne in hand, floating on top of fine-grade Iraqi oil; watching Saddam Hussein hanging on a 1000-foot high pole and listening to a musical composition of Collins Powell. And it happens to be musical rendition of poem, PARADISE REGAINED by blind poet, John Milton.It was then that I realized vision of Collins Powell, and I remembered JAMES BOND story at UN.
