...the ghost of the Shah of Iran..came to me in the middle of the night.
“Mr. Major...We come to express our deep concern with what is about to happen in Iraq. I am accompanied here by former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein who speaks for both of us.”
“Yes”..Saddam intoned. “whatever actions the Shah and I were accused of will pale into insignificance when these brutal blood thirsty rebels capture Baghdad.”
The Shah then summed up their appearance here...
“you reach a great many nations in your writings. Please seek help for the Iraqi people before it is too late.”
...and with that the Shah and Saddam disappeared into the night.
I made some notes...(tell Putin this is MORE important than his neighbors)and went back to sleep...fitfully.
