This story isn't new, but it got me thinking about developing my own foreign-policy and war-fighting doctrine. A FRENCH SEPTEMBER 11 FILM playing at the Venice Film Festival has many anti-American elements, but THE FILM STILL RECEIVED ENTHUSIASTIC APPLAUSE to its most anti-American segments.

The money line from the film says, "The U.S. and Israel are democracies. Their governments are elected by their people -- thus it is legitimate to attack their people." In response, I have developed the Sabertooth Doctrine: "A nation's people too cowardly to rise up against the unelected government who oppresses them are fair game when America is in the process of overthrowing that government."
