#2 I remember reading in the British intelligence report that torture is illegal in Iraq. Look how well that law works!

Which means one of 2 things:

1. Either the person suggesting the law against WMD's hasn't bothered to read the report, which is a major part of the issue, in which case that willfully-ignorant person does not belong in any kind of descision-making capacity regarding Iraq...

2. Or the person is perfectly well aware that Iraq's government ignores its own laws, and is cynically proposing the law as a decietful way to get political cover for a sociopathic, murderous tyrant.

My personal theory is 3: Both of the above.

#4 Steve, I must take issue with one of your comments: Pollyanna was a damn lot more effective than Blix ever was, is, or will be. Don't insult the girl with such a demeaning comparison...

#5 "A senior Iraqi official, Lt Gen Amer Al-Saadi, said that Iraq had "looked at the problem" of U2 flights "in a constructive way" and had refused to allow them unless America and Britain suspended patrols in the no-fly zones."

Ok, Abdul, here's a solution to your "problem":

We fly the U2's whenever and wherever we want, and you STFU and keep your pissant airforce grounded if you don't want them shot down.

How's that?

#6 Blix is shooting down the French-German plan:

The principal problem is not the number of inspectors but rather the active co-operation of the Iraqi side, as we have said many times," Mr Blix said in Athens, after his 11th-hour visit to Baghdad this weekend.

(Insert Nelson Muntz noise here.)

#7 Ouch! Nice backbone Hans! He's been returning to the vertebrate category - mirror opposite of the Franco/German retrogressing
