    "That is the precise reason to execute very ill advised but totally necessary preemptive strike,. . . " The only preemptive strike that might be necessary is a response to an imminent threat, not the possibility that someday there might be a threat. Preemption sounded great to the Bushiz, but it has turned out to be quite a different thing than the quick, cheap and glorious victory they (and no rational person) expected. When people whip up hysteria to justify some action they wish to take, I am always suspicious. When Saddam stopped playing his silly games and cooperated with UNSCOM, it took just a few weeks for the inspectors to run through their leads and find nothing. Then Hans Blix requested information from the Bush administration - which was claiming 'we know exactly where they are." The Bush administration had no information to give Blix, and when he complained about Bush not cooperating, they unleashed a smear campaign in the news. The WMD hysteria was just that.
