    Iraq agrees to inspectors...

    Yep, they agreed.

    So now what? Same bull**** as last time?...Parade around a bunch of clueless inspectors in their make-believe, hollywood-stage-style weapons storage facilities while the real stuff is going on elsewhere behind closed doors...

    Like Timucin pointed out...Just yesterday and shipment of anti-toxin was intercepted.

    This will not just end.

    I don't think Pres Bush is gonna screw around. Remember all the heat his dad took for not finishing Saddam off last time.

    The Iraqis May have just made a bigger mess for themselves !

    The next hurdle an Excerpt here:

    This was no surprise really. Saddam Hussein is a survivor, as we have seen many times, and he had been backed into a corner.

    Mr Bush will adopt a policy of zero tolerance
    He has had no support in the Arab world for his position, with even Syria, the only Arab state on the Security Council voting against him.

    Russia also urged him to accept the resolution.
    The decision should now enable the UN and International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors to return to Iraq after an absence of nearly four years.

    An advance team is expected to go from Cyprus by 18 November.
    Then comes the next hurdle, a higher one.

    Iraq has to deliver by Sunday 8 December a list of its weapons programmes and more.

    The text of the resolution says that it has to make "a complete declaration of all aspects of its programmes to develop chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles and other delivery systems such as unmanned aerial vehicles and dispersal systems designed for use on aircraft".

    It must also declare "all other chemical, biological and nuclear programmes including any which it claims are for purposes not related to weapons production or material".
    Spectre of war

    This is quite a list. And Iraq has said that it has no such weapons programmes. aahh looks like some trouble here !!

    So, if it either refuses to make a declaration or makes what turns out to be a false declaration, it runs the grave risk of being in material breach of the resolution.

    The truth of its declaration will have to be tested by the inspection teams on the ground and the US is likely to give them time to do their job.

    But defiance or delay by Iraq would lead to another meeting of the Security Council to "consider" what to do, with the likelihood that the US and Britain would go to war with him.
