"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

This is the problem in dealing with Saddam. Either way he will use weapons of mass destruction. It is the only way he can be remembered for a thousand years it is the only way he can kill enough people to become Saladin.

Al-Qabas daily said Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem al-Thani told an unnamed Kuwaiti political figure that Saddam recently said: "If I allow inspectors to return, I'm allowing the end of the regime. And I wish to end in glory."

The people that don't think he will use them even if we just allow things to go on the course they have been for the past decade are being somewhat delusional. They think that he is willing to die peacefully. He is not. When he feels the time has come he will launch the war to assure his legacy. Do we want to let him do that when he has the arsenal he feels will assure him of his legacy or do we want to end it now?
