Yet Even More Suspicious Activity In Iraq...

To put it in basic words:

The lastest search of a military-industrial complex in Iraq revealed that equipment previously tagged for ID by inspectors in 1996, has turned up missing. Also, cameras used to monitor the equipment have also mysteriously disappeared.

Iraq claims that the equipment and cameras were either...

A. Bombed by the US

But, everything else in the factory is fine, so why not this equipment? Also, why is it only the tagged equipment that was destroyed? HMMMMMMMMM............

B. Moved elsewhere

UN Inspectors have asked Iraqi officials to see if they can turn up the missing equipment.

Now who's betting that it will turn up?  Insane

Also, Bush said reports of Iraqi compliance with U.N. inspectors were "not encouraging."

IMHO, this whole inspecting situation is just going to end the same as last time, and the time before, and the time before.

(Jus' to tell ya guys, there is no possible conclusion in what I have just posted.)

The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

I'm not so sure about that. A lot of things have changed over time.

At the end of desert storm, the senior Bush's administration would have loved to remove Saddam from power when we had the opportunity. Many Americans, to this day, still think of this as an opportunity wasted. However, that administration had enough foresight to realize that the international community would have never supported such a move and, ultimately, it would have given the Islamist fundamentalist a key selling point that the "West" was trying to take over the Muslim lands.

Second, the junior Bush's administration is committed to bringing an end to this decade-long standoff --something the previous administration didn't have the balls to do. You don't have to agree with the current administration's motivations, but at least they are not satisfied with the status quo of spending a few billion dollars per year to maintain a deterrence-level force in that region. A presence that contributes greatly to the motivation of Islamist groups who want to see less westernization of their lands.

Sure, you can argue that 9/11 opened the door for Bush and you would be at least partly correct. However, I'm willing to bet that if the September attacks had happened during Clinton, it would have amounted to another opportunity for the Clinton-Albright posse to once again show the world that they don't have the first clue on how to manage a military campaign.
