And... ABC radio just announced that The White House has accepted the

Arf! <pant pant>

Is it true that the agreement is only to inspect 8 "palaces" for "a
limited time"?

What happens after that "limited time"? We do no more inspections?

And what happens to all the other palaces and disputed areas? No
inpections there either?

Please correct me if I'm wrong... but isn't this exactly the deal that
Saddam wanted all along? No inspections of his "palaces"? (after a brief
time of hiding the stuff from those eight, in one of the other 40-odd--
doesn't sound like any large crimp in his plans).

What, exactly, is the difference between this "diplomatic victory", and
"running with our tails between our legs"?

This ranks right up there with our "victory" in Vietnam.

P.S. I really hope the reports of "limited inspections of only eight
are incorrect, and that there is much more to the deal than we have heard
thus far.
