COVER ILLUSTRATION: Carrie Brown ('Old Shakespeare') NYC Municipal Archives


"To say that Iraq aspires to 'enslave the world' is a bit like saying that Jack the Ripper wanted to be King of England. This is not to defend Jack the Ripper; it is to define him. Scotland Yard ruled out political motives pretty early in the case. Bad people are always bad in specific ways. Even Stalin seemed sincerely fond of children." Sobran's The Real News of the Month, "Loose Lips," January 14, 2003.

"The United Nations' history on Iraq is, to be blunt, dismaying. During the 1990s, the U N brought to the task roughly the same energy and enthusiasm as an English bobby dunning Jack the Ripper for back parking tickets." U S News and World Report, 30 September 2002.
