The Al-Samoud II Step As

The Al-Samoud II Step

As I predicted earlier, Saddam, after contra blustery remarks to Dan Rather, does indeed (with possible conditions) look set to allow the Al-Samouds to be destroyed. Anything to give the French more ammo with Cameroon, Pakistan, Chile and the like. Of course, Dubya rightly says such an action (if it indeed were to be effectuated) would not have any impact on his decision-making process. It's not about these missiles, it's about the mustard gas, anthrax, botulinum toxin, etc. I just feel for Tony Blair if we don't get those nine votes sans veto.
