Bush and Cheney have itchy trigger fingers. "In the inspections process, the United States will be making one judgment: Has Saddam Hussein changed his behavior of the last 11 years? Has he decided to cooperate willingly and comply completely, or has he not? So far the signs are not encouraging," the president said. -- from the NY Times. I'm losing track, but wasn't the goal two weeks ago to "disarm" Saddam? And a month or two ago it was regime change. Now it's "change his behavior." The excuses change constantly: what Bush wants doesn't. It was war then, it is war now. Whatever Saddam does or doesn't do hasn't and won't affect this in the slightest. Only political resistance here at home has delayed the war until now, and only a huge resistance effort can stop it now. Get your city council to join Ann Arbor in passing a resolution. Go to a protest march. Write congress--again. Start your own blog. Do whatever you can to stop the madness here and now.
