[This is what neoconservatives actually believe...]
The wisest course would have been for President Bush to use his nuclear weapons to slaughter Iraqis
until they complied with his demands, or until they were all dead. Then there would be little risk or
expense and no American army would be left exposed. But if he did this, his cowardly electorate
would have instantly ended his term of office, if not his freedom or his life.
As there appears to be no sensible result of the invasion of Iraq that will be popular with his
countrymen other than retreat, President Bush is reviled; he has become another victim of Democracy.
If President Bush copied Julius Caesar by ordering his army to empty Iraq of Arabs and repopulate the
country with Americans, he would achieve immediate results: popularity with his military; enrichment
of America by converting an Arabian Iraq into an American Iraq (therefore turning it from a liability to
an asset); and boost American prestiege while terrifying American enemies.
He could then follow Caesar’s example and use his newfound popularity with the military to wield
military power to become the first permanent president of America, and end the civil chaos caused by
the continually squabbling Congress and the out-of-control Supreme Court.
President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president ”
Bush or he can become “ President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the
Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating
Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the
power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear

Try picturing a B-movie evil genius saying this and it will hurt your brain a bit less.

this guy has no problem talking about wiping out people in another country. But I would lay money on it that Phillip is a coward and would run from a fight.

I hope that I won't invoke godwins law by comparing this guy to hitler, however I feel it is appropriate considering his views over iraq seem pretty much identical to hitlers and poland.

I doubt he'd be popular with the military, most of them are normal humans who only want to be able to defend this country. They would be horrified just like the rest of us if someone wanted them to kill everyone in a country.
It also wouldn't scare our enemies so much as unite them and our friends against us to destroy us before we decide to bomb them. No matter how strong our military or good our weapons we wouldn't stand a chance against the rest of the world if our military even agreed to fight.

Mmm – what did happen to the Roman Empire?
Oh yes... it imploded.
But before it did so, the Romans ruled their empire somewhat differently than Atkinson's over-fertile imaginings.
A bit like the British, centuries later, they tended to put in governors and administrators and occupying forces, and allowed the locals to get on with it while taxing them or exploiting their resources, thereby earning vast revenues. They did not massacre populations, only those who stood in their way. And they did not destroy land and cities, preferring to make money from them.
That is actually what empires are for. The Romans' fatal mistake was to let their empire grow too big, so nobody knew what was what and who the hell was controlling what. Same with us Brits – and look at our empire now.
This Atkinson creep has no idea – of anything. He is just a ranter, signifying nothing. We can safely ignore him. Just enjoy the fun.

"Oh, by the way. Augustus Caesar's descendant, Caligula, was an absolute basket case who believed he was a god, and it is rumored he screwed his sisters, one of whom seduced her Uncle (who was Caesar at the time) in order to become the wife of a Caesar. She was rumored to have poisoned him in order to gain Caesar-ship for her son (from a previous marriage)and attempted to seduce him when he became disobediant, and he eventually murdered HER."

GWB's in enough trouble already, yet some people have to "give him" some further "wonderful ideas" on how to be a "better" US President.

"President for life"... within hours, there'd be nothing left to be president of.
IOW, the US is not the only country to stockpile nuke-u-lar weapons.

Bush can become a for-life "My Pet Goat"-reader but that is about all I'd allow him to become!

Jesus, this sounds like the strategy of a screwed up kindergartner.
"We kill them all dead with explosions. Then my daddy won't ever have gone to fight the bad guys and be killed, because the bad guys would all be dead. From the explosions."

How the hell do you come to the conclusion that any president of the united states is a <i><b>victim</i></b> of democracy? You have an extremely perverted sense of what a democracy is and what it does.
The risk of using nuclear weapons in Iraq is that it would start world war three.
Further reading convinces me that you're just another fucking Nazi who hides behind patriotism instead of aryanism.
DIAFF. Please. Soon.

You do know what happened to Caesar, right? He was stabbed like a thousand times because he had taken over Rome.

He would then follow Caesar's Example (TM) and get assasinated.

They should be forced to if not serve in the military during a war, so at least visit areas torn apart by war. Maybe they would be less enthusiastic about killing people.
I bet these people claim to be pro-life.
Disgusting, barbaric, backwards idiots. Full of arrogance, empty of any sort of knowledge or insight.

Apparently someone missed the whole, cold war ended two decades ago, thing...
Remeber folks, democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.
