Qu'est-ce que c'est, "ya-boo"? Is he one of our boys or is he just equivocating?

Slightly O.T., but gawd, I wish the Iraqis well. I was in central Europe in '89 and '90. I saw Prague bloom for a second spring. I went to Berlin just for the pleasure of taking a hammer to that f*cking wall. When I saw them bringing that statue down this morning, I remembered the wall coming down in Berlin. I opened champagne, put on Beethoven's Ode to Joy and wished them well. Oh, sure, the devil's in the details, but how cynical does one have to be not to see that this is a golden opportunity for the Iraqi people.

Reference is to his post-Afghan War column, which was entitled something like "Ha Ha Ha, and Ya, Boo to the Pacifists." I think it even included the line, "Whazzap, Noam?" or thereabouts....
