What if he did it in the name of love?..What better motive is there than that..Has the world become too cynical.

I don't think one lies and invades countries in the name of love-Love was not the problem, though a sticky ethical situation at worst- the problem w. Wolfie at the WB is trying to impose Bush administration policies (no reproductive health sex ed. for people in Africa, even though the AIDS mortality rate is through the roof, no condom distribution, etc, etc I could go on)These thimgs go hand in hand with development and poverty alleviation work.DUH. He brought some goons over from the Pentagon, including an Opus DEI guy. The WB actualy has very dedicated and professional development staff and this administration has nothing but contempt for multilateral institutions. They are by no means perfect, but they do good work.

"in the name of love" sounds great, though i personally would prefer "mommy dearest." we can think about a script-- it would start with a pan over a derelict township in the outskirts of johannesburg, where a disaffected freedom-hero and a glamorous but sulking post-technocrat fall in love while sharing stories in a black suv, surrounded by secret-service like men with earpieces and ugly suits.

Yes! A script! And Beto Gonzales can be the butler! He's next!

yes! did bertie a.k.a. gonzo the butler in the office with a knife do in retired colonel al-amoutard? this would provide the always necessary plot twist involving extraordinary rendition to an undisclosed location in eastern europe-- where wolfie and the glamorous ms s are vacationing in the villa next door! beautiful! but due to the amount of blood involved in this love story, we'll probably need to get tarantino for this one.
