Here we go: Well, no one can say we didn't try. It appears certain that we are going in to Iraq, and probably in a couple of days. Your comments on Chirac's last-minute realization that he has put the final nail into his country's coffing pertaining to it being a world power is poignant. Consider reversing the tables. If France said it was going to bomb the Ivory Coast (for example) and the U.S. said not to, does anyone really think France would go ahead and do it? I'm not really concerned that this move hurts the U.S., but I see the polarization that has occurred, and will continue to strengthen, as simply unfortunate. Oh well.
