I Didn't Realize...

...fighting them "over there" (so we don't have to fight them "over here") meant London.

Meanwhile, this headline,
"U.S. Posts Code-Red Alert; Bans Liquids" looks like it was taken straight out of Dr. Strangelove:
General Jack D. Ripper: He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.
The terrorists have managed to succeed where the Communists failed. In forcing us to ban liquids, they have managed to "sap" us of our fluids...

Meanwhile, the unprecedented decision to go up the color-code ladder forces one to ask
these questions:

Kaffee: Did you order the Code Red?
Col. Jessep: I did the job I...
Kaffee: [shouting] Did you order the Code Red?
Col. Jessep: [shouts]
You're goddamn right I did!
(This exchange is particularly striking if one picture VP Cheney in the Nicholoson/Col Jessup role.)
