Go ahead. Send me a new generation of recruits. Your bombs will fuel their hatred of America and their desire for revenge. Americans and their allies won't be safe anywhere. Please, attack Iraq. Distract yourself from fighting Al Qaeda. Divide the international community. Go ahead. Destabilise the region. Destabilise Indonesia. Maybe Pakistan will fall - we want its nuclear weapons. Give Saddam a reason to strike first. He might draw Israel into a fight. Perfect! So please - invade Iraq. Make my day.
