AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. - Likening crashing off his bicycle to soldiers storming Normany beaches on D-Day, 1944, President Bush urged support on Wednesday for his efforts to spread freedom and democracy in the Middle East despite the angry distrust of many Arabs. The President's latest speech follows his parallel between the War on Terrorism and World War II of the same day:

"Like my endeavour to survive on my bicycle, with the odds stacked against me, this is the great challenge of our time, the storm in which we cycle."

The U.S. President went further: he likened Barney the dog to terrorists because "they're both black and deserve to be put down."

Ancient Italian medieval mastermind, Niccolo Machiavelli, although over 500 years old, allegedly applauded the U.S. tactician for not only embarking on conflict abroad to distract from problems at home, but also for his cunning attempts to compare "The War on Terror" with the greatest war the world (Europe and Asia, anyway) has ever known.

In the course of his speech, President Bush added,
"I'm just glad we were in this war from the start. It's a real pity, though, that this time we can't just drop in, last minute, and get all the glory for none of the work."

In this reporter's opinion, enjoy it, Mr. Bush. This time, the glory's all yours.
