Thuggees

From a reader:

Weren’t thuggees the bad guys in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”? If so, then what’s needed is either for us to airlift Harrison Ford into the area, or for Bush to get on TV with a giant sword and bellow a paraphrase of what is undoubtedly the greatest line in cinema history:

“Moqtada al-Sadr, prepare to meet Kali… IN HELL!!!”

Man, used to be we knew how to deal with bad guys, you know? Frickin’ Mola Ram and his child slavery.
