"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Pretty damning indictment of both Republicans (for cedeing the high ground) and Deomcrats (for letting the issue die) when it comes to the cessation of inspections.

In the critical late 1990s, it was the United States, the preeminent power on the Security Council, that effectively stopped supporting the inspection system, rendering it a sham. Democrats understandably do not want to remember that. Republicans would find it inconvenient to have to share the blame with an amorphous "UN" that the Bush administration pretends not to be part of as it rattles sabers against the organization almost as frequently as it threatens Iraq.
