Subject:        Bush / Blair as Othello / Iago

"As dramatized by the British playwright David Hare in "Stuff Happens,"
Bush and Blair are players in a Shakespearean tragedy. Somewhat
unexpectedly, Bush turns out to be the devious Iago to Blair's naive
Othello. The victim is not a woman, however. The victim is Britain -
lured into a war that a large majority of British voters now regard as
unjust and unnecessary."
