You might be right, the evidence might not be there in which case we 
have a problem and hopefully GWB will not be reelected if this is the 
case (I'll certainly not vote for him). Will you change your tune if 
Israel or coalition forces are attacked by WMDs?

Ummm.... you forget why the UN inspectors were in Iraq in the first 
place. Iraq signed a deal (with the UN) to end GWI. They have not been 
living up to that deal. No... you didn't forget, you just want to bash 
Americans and GWB in particular, regardless of whether that bashing is 
justified. Truth be damned. It goes both ways. How can Americans trust 
anything spewed from the mouth of UN lackeys?

Gotta go now, got real work to do.
