#1 I would hope the inspectors get out safely - they were on a futile, thankless assignment. It was never their job to ferret out undisclosed weapons, and I think most of the weasel-supporters either ignore or misunderstand that. Those weapons will, unfortunately, probably make their appearance in about...oh...36 hours now?

#2 "China began evacuating personnel from its embassy, and the official Xinhua news agency in Beijing said six Chinese reporters were leaving."

I hope they've forwarded precise coordinates of the place to the USAF. We'd hate to see a repetition of Belgrade although the Chinese Take Out jokes were funny.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
