Just when America and the West needed a shot of testosterone, with Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard settling in to swallow Kuwait's oil, Margaret Thatcher stepped up with a word from the warrior queen. "Don't go wobbly on us, George," she told President George H.W. Bush. He didn't, and the West won.
