Hmm... sounds like U.S.S. Maine and the start of the Spanish-American war? You'll soon visit for another reason? :-)

(Hope the joke isn't too tasteless, this year. For the record, an invasion to implement an arab democracy is IMHO a potentially good thing. If done well.)

    Why would you want an arab democracy in Portugal?

      The Arabs lost control of Portugal quite a few hundreds year ago. :-)

      I'll explain, even tough you probably understood the joke and tried to be funny, too. :-)

      US declared war against Spain using as excuse that a ship exploded in a harbor (in Cuba, I think). Noone still knows why the ship exploded.

      Considering WMDs etc, I joked that a Portugese man-o-war burning a US citizen would result in Portugal being bombed.

      I had the disclaimer, because I consider Chomsky as reliable as Fox News; as much religion as Vi-believers (Emacs lovers are of course just using reason). But this is totally off topic.

        hmmm... looks like I shoulda put a ;) or a </joke> at the end of my post.
