On the Brink What to

On the Brink

What to say? Apologies for the light postings today but, like the rest of the world, I am in a waiting (rather than writing/posting) mode. We are clearly on the cusp of momentous events. My biggest fears at this juncture are a WMD attack on coalition troops or civilian centers in the neighborhood--as well as potential Turkish-Kurdish fighting with U.S. GI's thrown in a quasi-belligerent stance vis-a-vis a NATO ally. I hear that the Beltway barometer is looking at a three week time frame, ie. fewer than three weeks with Saddam out and no calamities a solid Bush win. If it drags on longer, if not quite a dreaded Mesopotamian Stalingrad, concerns grow. In the meantime, like all responsible individuals, we must hope for minimum casualties on all sides. More soon.
