      Bang! Bang! Bang! 

      The sound of hammering of the nails into the coffin of whatever was left of
      the US's image in the world is loud enough to give a throbbing headache to all
      except those wingnuts and their deluded victims among our fellow citizens,
      those with their fingers in their ears, shouting "LALALALALALALA!"

      Following up on its revelation of the July 2002 minutes showing that the US
      and the UK were already set on a course to attack Iraq, The Times (UK) reported
      on Sunday that
      > [t]he RAF and US aircraft doubled the rate at which they were dropping
      > bombs on Iraq in 2002 in an attempt to provoke Saddam Hussein into giving the
      > allies an excuse for war, new evidence has shown.
      >
      > The attacks were intensified from May, six months before the United Nations
      > resolution that Tony Blair and Lord Goldsmith, the attorney-general, argued
      > gave the coalition the legal basis for war. By the end of August the raids had
      > become a full air offensive.
      This dovetails nicely with the memo's reference to Donald Rumplestiltskin
      saying "the US had already begun 'spikes of activity' to put pressure on the
      regime."

      It was quite a spike:

      UN Security Council resolution 1441, the one that Shrub claims as
      justification for invading Iraq, was not passed until November 8.
