    Netanyahus speech sounds terribly familiar: http://www.netanyahu.org/con1.html Quote: Two decades ago it was possible to thwart Sadaam?s nuclear ambitions by bombing a single installation. Today nothing less than dismantling his regime will do. For Sadaam?s nuclear program has changed. He no longer needs one large reactor to produce the deadly material necessary for atomic bombs. He can produce it in centrifuges the size of washing machines that can be hidden throughout the country ? and Iraq is a very big country. Even free and unfettered inspections will not uncover these portable manufacturing sites of mass death. Knowing this, I ask all those who oppose the President?s plan ? do you believe that action can be taken against Sadaam only after he builds nuclear bombs and uses them? Do these critics believe that a clear connection between Sadaam and September 11 must be established before we have a right to prevent the next September 11? I think not. Netanyahu got what he asked for, the result was more than a million innocent iraqi civillians killed and the country contaminated by DU weapons used against them....
