Mike...are you not concerned that Bush and the military are dramatically over estimating Sadams nuclear capability?

All during the 60's 70's and 80's the CIA, the military and the military industrial complex misled the American People about military strength of Russia. Russia's military strength was about 1/4 of what was given as estimates to the American People.

I'm of the opinion that having Nuclear Capability and being able to do something with it are entirely different problems.

From what I know of nuclear science the big danger is not from a nuclear weapon (explosive type)but from a nuclear device that would leak radiation without exploding. Something like Chernobyl.

The spymasters would have you believe you can go into a Wal-Mart and your neighborhood nuclear power plant and then a radiology department at your local hospital and pick enough enough equipment to make a nuclear device that you can toss into your car trunk until you decide where to use it.

Until something is resolved between Israel and Palestine Bush's war on the axis of evil goes no where.

Good op/ed article that you suggested in yesterday's NYT's

All the posters are afraid of you Mike...any criticism of Israel could put a poster on Sharon's hit list. I just got my alfalfa fields planted and the last thing I want to see is a bunch of Israeli tanks surrounding my house and messing up my irrigated alfalfa acres.
