Dont mean to butt in here, but let me respond by saying..."HU?!" I think you
have missed the mark here my friend.  Bush did what the coalition mandate
outlined and no more...he neither had the authority or the support to push
on into Bagdad.  We (the U.S.) were part of a world wide force.  Had we
acted with impunity and without reguard for the other members of the
coalition, we certainly would have suffered the consequences.

   Agreed, this one he didnt do.  Well, not exactly, you see I feel that
because of his MANY problems here at home, (through his own doing..)he
appears weak and confused.  Someone who is more worried about his immediate
political future than about some bonehead half pint, half way around the world.
Therefore this jerk in bagdad thinks he may have a little slack and takes
advantage of it.  One thing would seem certain, the situation has been
mishandled to this point by this administration.  Now with the latest
trevails (sp?) it gets worse by the hour.  Clinton made his bed,
unfortunately we will all be made to lay in it...(eewww!!)
