A Ticking Clock

A week from today. St. Patrick’s Day.

One week until the US imposed deadline for Iraq to come clean on its weapons of mass destruction, and to disarm.

Today seemed filled with jockeying for political position, mostly focused on the UN. While I recognize the usefulness of the UN, there are times when they seem utterly inept. Now seems to be one of those times. With the inspectors seemingly on an “avoid war at all costs” vendetta, their credibility — along with that of the UN — is waning.

One week. We’ll see what one week brings.
