THE BRITISH, HAVING WON THE WAR, ARE NOW DEMANDING A RECOUNT

I missed this one last week, but Mark Steyn wrote a piece in the Telegraph (sorry for no link -- you have to register at www.telegraph.co.uk and then search for the article) about how the Brits are monomaniacal about WMDs, to the point of irrationality. A quote:

This is all very odd. In Kirkuk the other day, they found another mass grave, this time with the bodies of 200 children who had been buried alive. Yawn. Doesn't count. Wake me if they find a toxic warhead among the teeny skulls. The naysayers were wrong on so much - millions of refugees, Vietnam quagmire, Stalingrad, etc - you can't blame them for clinging to the one little straw that hasn't shrivelled up and slipped between their fingers: Come on, Tony, where's the WMD?
