It sounds like something out of dystopian lit

One of the most interesting things I heard recently was the nickname of Bush's group of supportive nations at the beginning of the Iraq war: the Coalition of the Willing.

It's just very...
1984?

Or its just cheezie. It's like it was taken from a fantasy quest movie or D&D game.

Well, exactly. Either way it's sort of out of reality, and definitely not the group of people I want fighting a war in my name...

Also, the news analyst on the radio said that it should now be renamed the "coalition of the remaining."

In related news, British intelligence agency MI5 recently disclosed that it kept George Orwell under intense surveillance for more than a decade. Is it paranoia when you're right?
