Closer to 48 seconds. FAR closer to 48 seconds.

Indeed, I suspect that it may be along the lines of "The liberation began 5 minutes ago."

My recollection is that these presidential speeches tend to follow, not precede, the beginning of military action. Saddam better run now -- instead of weeks and months, it is now minutes and hours.

Admins better get their act together on this site. I posted a thread about the vote. It was pulled. The second thread about the subject was locked quoting that it was a duplicate of my thread.

The incentive to carry these grows less as cries of "wolf" inure the network choosers.

I agree, no more than 24 hours. I picked 1:00 AM Baghdad time on the 19th for a particular reason.

From what I understand, there will probably be two speeches--the first to warn everyone to get out, the second to say we've begun the liberation of Iraq.

One Presidential address to say negotiations and diplomacy are over and war will be necessary. Then we'll have another address later in the week to announce that the bombing has started.

Bush to Address U.S., Demand Saddam Leave
Mon March 17, 2003 10:18 AM ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush will demand in a speech to the American people on
Monday night that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein leave Iraq to avoid war, a White House
spokesman said.

Bush will speak at 8 p.m. after the failure by the U.N. Security Council to reach a consensus on
how to deal with Iraq.

That's a little harsh, isn't it? Give them a break. This isn't life or death, and things that are broken can be fixed.

Good. That's as it should be. Make him be the trigger.

France is to blame

That is so clear. There needs to be a good editorial written that demonstrates that.

1. To force a dangerous dictator to change his ways, he MUST sense a real danger of retaliation.

2. If he does not see unity in the potential parties to that retaliation, then he will NOT change immediately.

3. If he senses open division in the potential parties to that retaliation, the he probably will consider not changing EVER.

4. If he senses that some of the parties of the retaliation are actively preventing any retaliation EVER happening, then he will DECIDE never to change.

5. If he senses that some of the parties are his allies, then he will ignore the opposition and return to his dangerous ways.

No, I think this will be the "get out of Dodge now" speech. Tomorrow afternoon, U. S. time (middle of the night in Iraq,) we'll hear the "it's started" speech, IMO. Or the 2nd speech could happen the next afternoon. But it WILL happen this week.

President Bush is doing his best to take the American people with him step-by-step. He'll explain again, in more detail, exactly why we have to do this now. I expect to hear him relate some accounts of torture, rape and murder in Saddam's Iraq.

The warning to get out has already been given. The inspectors have been told to leave. The news people were told yesterday. The Shields are now technically hostages.
