Unbelievable. I would truly like to know what the rules are that allow Capitol security to squelch Freedom of Expression. Cindy Sheehan was roughly escorted out of the State of the Union for wearing a T-Shirt that allegedly said "245 Dead. How many more?". She was taken to a nearby police station and arrested. Also interesting- so was the wife of "powerful" Republican Rep C.W. Bill Young of Florida, (Beverly Young), for wearing a shirt that said "Support our troops - Defending our freedom". Good grief.

Probably one of the most amusing bit of political satire in a while. The basic ZORK-style truly brings out Bush's simplicity and single-mindedness. Makes me want to go play it all over again.

> INVADE IRAQ
You are not able to do that, yet.

> INVADE AFGHANISTAN
Afghanistan
You have invaded the nation of Afghanistan, bombing the Taliban nearly out of existence.

Osama Bin Laden, mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, is here.

> INVADE IRAQ
(Leaving Afghanistan first.)
You are not able to do that, yet.

> INVADE IRAQ
You are not able to do that, yet.

> FUCK
Such language in a high-class establishment like this!

> HYPE THREAT
"The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."

> MONGER FEAR
"Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final proof -- the smoking gun -- that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud ..."

> MUDDY WATER
"We know that Iraq and the al Qaeda terrorist network share a common enemy -- the United States of America. We know that Iraq and al Qaeda have had high-level contacts that go back a decade. And we know that after September the 11th, Saddam Hussein's regime gleefully celebrated the terrorist attacks on America ..."

> PUNISH CRITICS
"Wilson never worked for the CIA, but his wife, Valerie Plame, is an Agency operative on weapons of mass destruction ... "

> RAILROAD CONGRESS
You schedule a vote on the Iraq invasion for just before the 2002 midterm elections. As usual, spineless democrats roll over like an SUV taking a sharp corner.

Your plan to invade Iraq now has the backing of the American people and Congress.

> INVADE IRAQ
Baghdad
You enter the Iraqi capital of Bagdad, having toppled the government and captured the nation's key cities in only 21 days. You can't seem to find the promised throngs of citizens greeting you as liberators, but the footage of the Saddam statue being pulled down looks great on Fox!

He's safe as he doesn't work with Apache's but we only found out tonight what happened. My Mom told me this evening that she heard about the crash this morning on her way to work but knew no details. I can't imaging how families of those on the ground working feel everytime they simply hear of more soldier deaths due to an IED or car bomb. Of course, it didn't help that Reuters recapped all the other major chopper crashes since we invaded Iraq. *sigh* I truly hope stories like this make you all appreciate your friends and family that much more. Life is short - love lots.
