[casi] America's reaction to the news...

Dear List,

>disarm was still needed."

Correct me if I am wrong here but.. how does the US expect Iraq to disarm when its claiming it has 
no weapons? If Iraq is confident that there are no weapons of mass destruction in their possession 
and they clearly show co-operation.. why does the US not find this acceptable?

As I said in my previous post, I am very skeptical of what America's motives are here. I would be 
very naive to say that the US won't go to war.

In another article I read tonight, there was a new poll out in the UK:

"An earlier survey showed opposition at 50% with only 33% in favour - a gap of 17%. This has 
dropped to 40% now compared to 36% in favour. The number of "don't knows" has risen from 17% to 
24%, with 44% of men approving military action compared to 37% against. About 42% of women are 
against war compared to 28% in favour. In the previous survey, men disapproved by 50% to 36%, while 
50% of women opposed action, compared to 31% in favour."

MSNBC tonight spoke of a poll (they sponsored), saying that over 70% of Americans believe that a 
war with Iraq will only make the US a bigger target/threat for terrorist attacks. Yet, on a 
separate poll conducted the same time, shows over 60% of Americans are for war against Iraq. 
Doesn't make sense does it?
