THE REAL DEAL NEARS
November 23, 2003
On Wednesday the U.N. finally start looking at what might be found in Iraq. There will only be 18 inspectors on the job and I am sure all will go well. It won’t be for weeks until we are fully staffed with 100+ inspectors.
So, what will we find come Wednesday as the real deal we’ve been talking about for years begins? The answer- NOTHING! It’s going to take some time for the cat-n-mouse game to get really intense. And then the really important date is December 8. You see, that’s the date that Saddam must declare WHAT he has. Of course he’s going to calim he has nothing in hopes we find nothing because if he declares nothing and we find something, lights out!
One thing we need to keep in mind though is this concept called “politics”. Where is chief inspector Blix on all of this? Is he trying to placate Saddam, the U.N., the U.S., or France? No man operates within a vacuum. Soon we’ll find out who is putting butter on his bread.
