Iraq has said United Nations weapons inspectors can come back in to the country, a move that is sure to permanently halt Washington's imperial drive to war. Keep in mind, it is not as if the United States bombed Iraq yesterday or anything.
Seriously, last Thursday, Bush said there were a lot of conditions that Iraq had to meet to avoid war:
If the Iraqi regime wishes peace, it will immediately and unconditionally forswear, disclose, and remove or destroy all weapons of mass destruction, long-range missiles, and all related material.Since Iraq is unlikely to do all of these things no matter what happens with weapons inspectors, Bush still has plenty of room to justify war. The U.N. might not think all of these issues are a justified reasons for war but its support has never been Bush's primary concern.
It is thus far from shocking to see that Bush and friends have rejected the offer.
