Hi. I'm Bill O'Reilly. Thanks for watching us tonight.
I want to tell you we have attorney Johnny Cochran warming up. Well, that should be interesting. And we'll analyze the president's speech in a moment.
But, first, a brief Talking Points Memo.
As you know, I support the U.S. military removing Saddam Hussein. The man trains and funds Palestinian suicide bombers, has used poison gas on civilians, and is generally a murderous psychopath. America has a moral right to remove Saddam because he has violated the Gulf War Treaty that 299 Americans died forging.
I've listened to those that oppose removing Saddam and feel they are being naive and failing to see that worldwide terrorism must be confronted on a case-by-case basis, and Saddam is a very hard case. He sponsors terrorism, hates us, and is an extremely dangerous man, much more so than even Usama bin Laden, who is either dead or incapacitated.
No clear-thinking America embraces violent conflict, but the world has changed. Civilians are now targets, and dictators like Saddam cannot be allowed to foster terrorism with or without weapons of mass destruction.
There is a very easy solution to this -- unlimited access to weapons inspectors supervised by Americans. If Saddam fails to grant that, we must protect the world from him, and we will.
And that's The Memo.
The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day
Time now for "The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day."
Italian sex actress and former politician Ciccolina says she is willing to have sex with Saddam Hussein if it would prevent a war, but she says she would have to keep her eyes closed during the entire experience, which might lead to injury, or so I'm told by Dr. Ruth. Anyway, Chickaleda (ph) is getting on in years, so she might not be the only one looking at eyelids.
Either way, the scenario is ridiculous and may have to be approved by the U.N. if it happens.
