Support UNICEF's relief efforts in Myanmar

From the NYT - "Deadly or just bizarre?"
"A drone aircraft said to be the type that was included in Prime Minister Blair's list of demands was put on display today in Iraq. The Iraqi aircraft appeared more decrepit than devastating. It has a wooden propeller and joints covered with masking tape. Brigadier General Imad Abdul Latif, the Iraqi Project Director, said the drone performed so poorly on early test flights that it has been grounded. And he said it would be impossible for the craft, which he said has never flown more than 2 miles, to deliver chemical weapons."

President Saddam Hussien, I hope you have the foresight to submit a revision to the earlier weapons disclosure and include your children's remote controlled "build-it-yourself" planes and cars from their childhood days. As we have seen in Eastwood's "Dirty Harry", even these have the potential to carry remotely detonatable bombs - which with a few modifications could carry chemical and biological weapons. If you fail to do that, you would be found in violation of UN resolutions and automatically set the stage for an US-led invasion. Oh, and while you are at it, don't forget the plant disinfectants in your garage.
