Mission Not Accomplished

"Speaking of George Bush, with whom Sharon developed a very close relationship, Uri Dan recalls that Sharon's delicacy made him reluctant to repeat what the president had told him when they discussed Osama bin Laden. Finally he relented. And here is what the leader of the Western world, valiant warrior in the battle of cultures, promised to do to bin Laden if he caught him: "I will screw him in the a**!"

That delightful quote is from Ha'aretz's review of Uri Dan's new biography of Ariel Sharon. Tough -yet, ultimately impotent - talk from the frat-boy in chief. All that's missing is the twirling of a mustache, or a sinister cackle.


PS: I would settle for merely capturing Osama, and putting him on trial. Will it ever happen? No -- because our homoerotic Commander in Chief let his love interest slip away in Tora Bora.

PPS: The review also tells us that Dan suggests Sharon had Arafat assassinated with Bush's permission. Tzoriach iyun.
