the war as blogged through bad 80's lyrics

Apparently Iraqi soldiers aren't big Corey Hart fans. Otherwise they would know that no one can take away your right to fight and never surrender.

Masses of Iraqi soldiers are deserting and senior members of President Saddam Hussein's ruling family circle are defecting as the countdown to a British and US invasion reaches its final hours.

In northern Iraq, on the border with Kurdistan, up to three-quarters of some Iraqi regiments have already fled.

Of course, this early into the war - heck, it hasn't even officially begun yet - it's easy to dispel everything you read, see or hear. Rumors fly, psychological attacks are made and one does not know what to believe. Just this morning, we thought Azis was dead and then I see him on tv doing a defiant, angry dance of denial.

Meanwhile, our troops are turning the would-be flag wavers down, "telling them that they must wait until an attack begins before they can surrender."

That's ok. They can wait. Corey Hart says so: Just a little more time is all we're asking for, cause just a little more time could open closing doors.

I apologize in advance for getting that song stuck in your head.

The dance of denial, huh? I like that; I'm sorry I missed it. I imagine it includes arm flourishes and several spins.

Right about now, I imagine Tariq Aziz is feeling about as anxious as a Christian Scientist with appendicitis.

I didn't get that song stuck in my head, fortuneately. I had to shock myself with a cattle prod to prevent it, but it ain't in there. involuntary shudder
