Iraq and a Hard Place-Yesterday wasn't a good PR day for Iraq, with their parliament nixing the UN resolution and news coming out that they have been trying to stockpile nerve gas antidotes (assumption being they'd give it to their soldiers when they gas the opposition). So what's a dictator to do-go on a peace offensive, of course, do a 180 and allow inspectors in. Cute, Saddam plays good cop to the parliament's bad cop. Look for the fine print, folks. If they let them in, then block access to them, it makes things really squirrelly, allowing the Euroweenies to say "that's not really a material breech, is it?" Bush and Blair will then have to say loudly "You bet it is-B1s away!"
