Hussein's Capture Restores Sense of Unity Among World Leaders!!!!

Yes, it's exactly as the New York Times' Patrick E. Tyler says it is!

French President Jacques Chirac issued a statement, percolating with the language of joyous global solidarity: "It's a major event that should strongly contribute to democracy and stability in Iraq and allow the Iraqis to master their destiny."

German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's own statement picked up on Chirac's theme of unrestrained cohesion with the United States: "This important success offers the chance to speed up the handover of sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government to increase stability in Iraq."

Put them together (along with a cautious endorsement from Japan's Junichiro Koizumi, and the addled "rejoicing" of Italy's Silvio Berlusconi), and this proves, according to Tyler, that Saddam's capture "restored a sense of unity today among world leaders."

Yes, all within those heady five hours since the capture!

Tyler continues:
Gone for the moment were recriminations over the justifications set out for the war in Washington and London, where pre-war intelligence on weapons of mass destruction has been picked apart in acrimonious national debates. Gone also, for the moment, were the recriminations over Washington's plan to exclude some countries, notably Germany and France, from the spoils of reconstruction contracts in Iraq.
That's right! Gone! All those recriminations over the phony war justifications, all those recriminations over Germany and France's exclusion from Halliburton's slop trough… all, "for the moment," completely gone!

Long live President Bush! Long live the eternal harmony and common cause of the now, and forever, united coalition of willing world brotherly nations!

At least, "for the moment"!

speakingcorpse adds: All that has happened since last fall is now forgotten. Also: all who were alive last fall are now dead. Including me.

Blicero adds: I hope that before Saddam is executed by a military tribunal, he will be forced to personally apologize to all of the families of the 9/11 victims, for being an Arab.
