Madonna has told the BBC that US troops should leave Iraq.
Agence France-Presse says in a story dated 10 November that in an interview, Madonna told BBC Radio. "[m]y feelings are 'can we just all get out?'"
Doubtless President Bush is calling the National Security Council into emergency crisis session even as El Jefe scribbles to discuss the grave moral implications of Madonna's plea. After all, as Madonna the strategist tells us: "Global terror is everywhere. Global terror is down the street, around the block."
Madonna's appeal will surely sway the conscience of the President and his counselors. Hopefully, President Bush will heed Madonna's call to exercise true statesmanship, and withdraw the troops, before he begins his own 20 city musical tour next month.
