Hi, I'm Bill O'Reilly. Thank you for watching us tonight.
Well, it is very painful to admit we were right again. Of course, I'm being facetious about the pain.
Canada shows its true colors. That is the subject of the "Talking Points" memo.
Even as President Bush was making his case for forcibly removing Saddam Hussein at the U.N., Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien said this, quote, "I do think the Western world is getting too rich in relation to the poor world. And we're looked at as being arrogant, self-satisfying, greedy, and with no limits. And September 11 is an occasion for me to realize it even more," unquote.
Prime minister says he's not blaming the USA for the 9/11 attacks, but others are outraged.
Now, I'm not outraged, because I expected something like this. Chretien is a socialist who believes the West owes something to radical Muslims and to the rest of the world. As we have reported, his government allows nearly everyone into Canada even if they have false documentation.
Of course, this puts all of us at risk. Chretien doesn't care.
The prime minister is against removing Saddam Hussein without a worldwide mandate, which will never happen because many nations hate the U.S. and will do anything to hurt us. Privately, the Bush administration's furious with Chretien and with Gerhard Schroeder of Germany for not supporting the USA in its quest to rid the world of Saddam Hussein.
Talking Points is tired of world leaders apologizing for a killer. Once again, Saddam Hussein violated the Gulf War treaty, end of story. He has to go, or the 299 Americans killed in the Gulf War will be disrespected.
It is absolutely insane to allow a murderous dictator to violate a treaty that was forged with American blood.
If Jean Chretien doesn't understand that, no one can help him. It is up to the good citizens of Canada to give him the boot. What we can do is Americans is to send a message to the prime minister that we think his opinions and attitudes are misguided. You can e-mail him care of the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C. at firstname.lastname@example.org. That's email@example.com. And let him know how you feel.
Once again, Americans must assert our power to confront not only evil but stupidity as well. Jean Chretien wants us to understand why 24 innocent Canadians were killed, along with 3,000 other people, on 9/11. He wants us to understand what drives the terrorists.
Well, I want the prime minister to understand this. He has just insulted every family who lost a loved one on 9/11.
And that's The Memo.
The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day
Time now for "The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day."
Actor Nick Nolte has been arrested for suspicion of DUI, and here's the mug shot. Wow!
Hey, Nick, a couple of tips for you. You might want to stop going to the Edward Scissorhands' Hair Salon. And the grooming in general could stand a little upgrading, Nick, if you know what I mean.
Ridiculous all around. Imagine seeing Nolte stopped at a light right next to you. Brutal.
