I'm for it

BAGHDAD, Oct 3 (NCA) -- Iraqi Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadan said today that the U.S. and Iraqi presidents should fight a duel, instead of going to war.
U.S. President George W. Bush accuses Saddam Hussein of stockpiling nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and harboring terrorists.
Ramadan suggested that instead of making all of Iraq suffer, Bush should face Saddam in a formal duel, with the weapon of their choice.
He said the vice presidents would act as seconds, but did not say whether he or Iraq's other vice president Taha Muhie-eldin Marouf would take on Dick Cheney.
Ramadan said the duel should take place on neutral ground with U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan as referee. He said, in his words, "In this way we are saving the American and the Iraqi people." (ap) kn
