At noon this Monday, Charlie Rose will interview U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on PBS Seattle (click here for your local PBS schedule). Rumsfeld will admit that the "War on Terror" (we call it the Whabbi War) is "much more difficult" than the 1945 to 1991 "Cold War". Basically the Whabbi War is a guerilla war designed to be fought by innovative irregulars, the conventional Cold War was designed to be fought by plodding bureaucrats. Take Canada's answer to "homeland security" for example - one day last month this Editor flew from Victoria to Kelowna and back. At security in Victoria an officious federal bureaucrat recently arrived from Ottawa confiscated the edior's tiny Swiss Army knife -"it's in da' regulations," said he. Before checking in to his return flight in Kelowna, our Editor bought a bottle of good cheap Hawthorne Valley Red wine. The bureaucrats at Kelowna let him carry the bottle aboard the airplane, as cabin luggage. Bureaucratic regulations administered by anal (Are you anal? - Click Here) petty officials prohibit Swiss Army knives but fail to mention glass bottles. Any terrorist could take a glass bottle aboard any Canadian flight. Once aboard the terrorist has simply to break the bottle over a chair arm - any barroom brawler knows what a magnificent weapon is a broken bottle - much more effective than a Exacto knife circa September 11, 2001. Like the little Dutch boy Canada's anal bureaucrats cannot plug the infinite number of possible holes in the dike.

So what's the 1885 Riel Rebellion got to do with all this? The Riel Rebellion was a guerilla war fought in the field, on the Metis side, by an elusive mastermind, Gabriel Dumont, on the Canadian side by a plodding military bureaucrat General Frederick Dobson Middleton. In the field, the Whabbi war is being fought on the Whabbi side by an elusive mastermind, Osama bin Laden, on the American side by a bespectacled military bureaucrat whose name is too obscure to even bother Googling. But Louis Riel led the Metis side from his headquarters in the church rectory at Batoche just as oil-spoiled Whabbi sheiks lead the Whabbi War from their headquarters in mosques in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Middleton's boss Sir John A. Macdonald led the Canadian side. Macdonald, a man of intuition, ordered Middleton to ignore Dumont's guerillas, march his army directly to Batoche, and cut off the head of the rebellion. In his plodding way that is what Middleton did. The rebellion was over. Any man or woman of intuition in 2006 Washington would do the same - cut off the head in Riyadh. Instead Junior Bush is supposed to lead America's side in the Whabbi War - a natural imbecile in whose Neanderthal noggin intuition is absent and, of course, Bush is beholden financially to the Whabbis (see Craig Unger's House of Bush - House of Saud).
