Chimp blustered: & world yawned
It is emerging from Spanish sources that in the run-up to the war against Iraq, the chimp threatened Angola, Cameroon, Chile and Mexico with all sorts of dire consequences if they did not make a ritual act of obedience by voting for the war in the Security Council. None of the countries did, but none of them has suffered any adverse consequences whatsoever.
This is something that the rest of us can take heart from. If the likes of Angola and Mexico could tell the simian to go and take a flying fuck, then the days when the world had to listen to America's roars are over.
