I see your point.  If the U.S. does nothing to Saddam then the message is
sent that it's ok to do what Saddam has done.  If nothing is done about
Saddam now: the U.S. will be at a perpetual state of near war with him like
we've been since the end of the gulf war.  All the while Saddam is building
up his arsenal.  This endless cycle of cat and mouse will end when Saddam
once again feels he is strong enough to take on the west.
