Well, I’ve been wrong before, I’ll be wrong again, and it looks like was wrong this time:
U.N., Iraq Agree on Inspection Terms
I still suspect that my rope-a-dope scenario might well play out, but over a slightly longer timeframe. But again, we’ll see…
Update 10/2: OK, since I screwed up my first prediction, I might as well go for broke.
Doesn’t it seem a bit kamikaze-like of the U.K. and U.S. to be demanding that the inspectors not return until a new resolution is in place?
Unless… they already have reason to believe they’re certain to get that new resolution through the Security Council….
