That's something to wonder about all right. Bin Laden seemingly has the will
but (so far) not the means to begin Armageddon. Bush has the means, but (so
far) not the will to begin Armageddon. Or does he? If Bush has Xian fundie
potential, Afghanistan will soon become just the beginning of a long downward
spiral into self-fulfilling biblical prophecy.
