"No, Biff. You leave her alone."

First Biff had George do his homework.

"In response to the latest Islamist threat against Spain, the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (Partido Socialista Obrero EspaƱol - PSOE) thought it appropriate to assure Spaniards that 'Afghanistan is not Iraq.' PSOE officials told news agencies that while the war in Iraq was 'illegal,' the mission in Afghanistan is being supported by the UN and includes 37 countries. It turns out Islamic terrorists don't care all that much about the distinction."
