An idle thought, while waiting for inspiration to hit:

When Dubya's boosters try to sell diplomacy as the best course of action for the Korean mess, they often cite the economic consequences of a war with North Korea, which could leave the South physically devastated; Seoul is right over the border.

Yet, when boosting the idea of an attack on Iraq, they talk down the danger of a side attack on the Saudi oil fields, which are right over the border from Iraq . (Or more precisely, that border cuts through the middle of what is really one large oil field, with wells on both sides).

  Is it too much to ask that we make up our minds?!?!
