[casi] Timing

There are lots of rumours floating around about timing.  Some indicate some "warning" action this 
week.  Others talk about Mid Feb (14th Feb is most quoted). Others talk about the Military not 
being ready until Mid March.  Still further rumours float around about a "rolling start" in Mid Feb 
with the US providing further support during Feb/March.

I don't think a final decision has been made about timing.  It looks like the US has declared 
support from the UK, Australia, Spain, Italy, Solvenia, Slovakia,  Lithuania, Poland,  and the 
Czech republic regardless of whether or not there is a new UN resolution.  There are supposed to be 
12 nations.  If anyone can post the whole list I would appreciate it.

Hungary may be saying it supports the Franco/German line, but is hosting American troops at the 

It is, of course, still possible that the US will move away from a mass invasion.

I believe there is a debate on Wednesday in the UK House of Commons about humanitarian issues 
relating to Iraq.
