The case is made

The case is made

The case is made. The evidence presented by Colin Powell today leaves no doubt that Saddam Hussein is in material breach of the United Nations’ resolutions and that he has had and continues to have weapons of mass destruction and that he continues to seek the means to use them against his own people and hie neighbors. We are told that war should only be the last resort. Then I would ask those people what further steps can be taken that have any hope of removing Saddam’s threat to others. How many chances should we give him? How long do we allow him to string us along while he builds up his forces? The old adage is that diplomacy is saying “Nice doggy,” while looking for a rock. That can work against us, too, and there comes a time when diplomacy becomes an obstacle to peace.
