> > So...what changed your mind? The inspectors are there to ensure compliance with the disarmament agreed to back in 1991, correct? Not to scour the country for any and all illegal weapons posessed...I take it you do not agree that any invasion would merely be a continuation of the original Gulf War, even though firing never stopped?
> The Blix report changed my mind. The drone thing makes me think that ultimately the inspectors won't cut it. In addition I think Korea will wait, now. I came to that for no real reason I just don't think they plan to do anything anytime soon. I was thinking they might try a preemptive strike while the US is busy with Iraq. But what can they gain for that you would still be able to make North Korea a crater.

North Korea wants to be bribed...sabre rattling is safe when your adversary is busy elsewhere.
