    Buchanan is a known isolationist too. (among other things) Hardly my favorite thinker, columnist.

    I've been thinking to myself for the last few weeks that maybe Iran is the true target.

    Wow, amazing. What makes you believe that? You'd have a hard time to find even indications for that.

    I rarely agree with PJB, but he makes some sense. I however prefer The Onion's take:

    Saddam Enrages Bush With Full Compliance
    WASHINGTON, DC—President Bush expressed frustration and anger Monday over a U.N. report stating that Iraqi president Saddam Hussein is now fully complying with weapons inspections. "Enough is enough," a determined Bush told reporters. "We are not fooled by Saddam's devious attempts to sway world opinion by doing everything the U.N. asked him to do. We will not be intimidated into backing down and, if we have any say in the matter, neither will Saddam." Bush added that any further Iraqi attempt to meet the demands of the U.N. or U.S. will be regarded as "an act of war."

    suspending the real world consequences of the entire situation for a moment, I agree, The Onion's take is pretty funny :D

    That artricle by PJB defintely sums up my stance on this issue of war with Iraq. I just don't buy the reasons why we should go get even more involved in an area that has caused us so much trouble. IMHO of course.
