Are you implying that we should do the same as we did with Panama and seek out
hussein the way we did with noriega? You do realize it took us over 2 long
weeks to track noriega down, and Panama is a *small* country in comparison to
iraq. Going after hussein would bring us bloodshed 10 fold what we suffered
thru in somalia. Not sure whether we're --as a country-- prepared to risk our
soldiers' lives for his hide.

BTW, word is that his nephew --hussein's, that is-- supposedly is much worse
than uncle saddam. Not sure if we want that either.
