Apparently, you are advocating the United States adopt a "one-size fits all" foreign policy in which different countries, different cultures and different situations are all handled the same way. This seems to be at odds with your general political leanings, but perhaps your grasp on internation relations isn't quite as good as that of the Bush administration.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm sure the Iraqis will try and pull all kinds of...er, shtuff to impede inspections. But fer cryin' out loud, why is it that we have to attack NOW, before even trying inspections.

You should be aware that we've been 'trying' inspections for the past 10 years. You should also be aware that we are not attacking now, Bush has called on Iraq to readmit inspectors. Unconditionally. Anything else is a non-starter, which any sane, rational person not given to reflexive Bush bashing acknowledges is the only way inspections have any chance of being effective. Saddam has had years to comply, years to negotiate. The time for negotiations is over. Admit inspectors, or we will kill you. What is wrong with this policy?
