Iraq will be making itself extremely vulnerable when
war does come (you will note that I did not say IF).
Unless Iraq decides to stop the inspections at some
point, the spies (inspectors) will learn all there is
to know about targets vital to Iraq's defense and
infrastructure. I can only think that Iraq is stalling
for time. I hope whatever they have waiting is worth

So much for Democrats being any better than Republicans!

Onward hireling army
You have naught to fear
Dubya and Dick Cheney
Will lead you from the rear
With the heavy burden
Fight for Yiddish conquest
Why let Israel die?
Onward hireling army
Marching on to war
Fight and die for Jewry
As you did before
You must die for Israel
In infantry or tanks
For your benefactors
To place again the Arabs
Beneath the Jewish star
Onward toward the shambles
Goy-killers that you are
Who has defied Jewry
Will be at war again
Onward toward the slaughter
For the Hebrews' gain
Driven toward the shambles
Like a flock of sheep
By lying propaganda
And their plans quite deep
For the Trade Center's wreckage
You must fight and die
That multinational corporate signs
May still light up our sky
From the U.N. sanctions
Two million kids did fall
The Jewish reign of terror
May hold us all in thrall
