Would you like some freedom fries with your crow, Mr. President?

"Let me make sure I've got this right," Salon's Gary Kamiya thinks aloud.

After being insulted, belittled and called irrelevant by the swaggering machos in the Bush administration, the United Nations is now supposed to step forward to supply cannon fodder for America's disastrous Iraq occupation -- while the U.S. continues to run the show?

In other words, the rest of the world is to send its troops to get killed so that a U.S. president it fears and despises can take the credit for an invasion it bitterly opposed.

The rest of the world may be crazy, but it ain't stupid.
The Guardian's Steve Bell puts what Kamiya has to say into picture form.
