I'm not completely convinced that there aren't some nasty weapons under a sand dune somewhere since it's not like the "bad guys" are going to notice our tanks and jets and decide to hang a billboard pointing to the stuff to help us out. But I'm perfectly willing to admit I expect the worst from Saddam lacking any evidence to the contrary.

The quick hit would be frowned upon even more than what we ended up with—that would be called political assassination of a world leader and then Dubya would be in front of a war crimes council. And it would be justified to boot, unlike the misguided calls for that sort of silliness right now.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
