Whose Line Is It Anyway?

<blockquote>"Don, this can't continue. I won the elections because of the stand I took with regards to my faith. Ok, so I made the mistake by riding the "God bless America" hype, but that was truly how I…and the whole of America felt. I didn't mean for it to become a holy war, but…darn…it really looks like one isn't it? We need to restructure the Middle-East, there's no doubt about that. Doesn't help that our getting rid of Saddam came across as a dilution of our attack on the Al-Qaeda. It now looks like we're targeting all Muslims.</blockquote>
<blockquote>Is there any way we can have them on our side in this one?"</blockquote>
Don smiled. He knew what had to be done, but waited patiently for the right time to bring it up.
<blockquote>"If we launch small covert attacks on strategic targets, we can have all of them on our side. A little bit of confusion and anarchy would have them begging for our intervention. It is then we can establish our blueprint for the Middle-East. Imagine having a hand in establishing democracy in all of the Middle-East, rather than just Iraq.</blockquote>
<blockquote>We already rule the airwaves and all the media channels. We own the average world citizen. Monarchy has to go – affecting one suspicious person is more difficult than changing the minds of the unsuspecting public. Democracy serves us."</blockquote>
George sighed. He had little time before the next election. He had to win it to best his father. He had already managed to turn the country's eyes away from the flickering economy, but he couldn't manage that forever. Control of the globe would definitely raise his chances at a second term.
<blockquote>"Just do what you got to do, Don."</blockquote>
Don rose from his seat and walked to the door.
<blockquote>"Don? Make sure you stick the bullseye on the bull."</blockquote>
Don picked up his cellphone and dialed a number.
<blockquote>"Hello. No, I don't need to speak with O'Reilly. Put me through to your editor. He's not there? Just tell him that Al-Qaeda claims responsibility for the attack on the mosque in Mecca tomorrow.</blockquote>
