No, but it isn't rocket science. There were two posts on the subject. These are the steps you'd think they'd take.

1. See who was first and lock the other.
2. Copy over the replies on the locked thread.
3. Destroy or not destroy the locked thread.

That's it. Not too hard.

Read the other day that they may go to "Dark Orange" Alert...just a hair below Red...when the war starts. Don't recall whether it was nationwide or just big cities..

Plus, Blair wants the parliament vote tomorrow morning before the war commences-- as a courtesy to the MPs.

NY and other states operate on a different alert system than the general population. The governors are notified about different circumstances and passes it down. They are always one up on us so they can position their security as planned.

BUSH 2, UN 0!

The Fox reporter at the UN just said something funny to me, that the UN is now officially irrelevant.

Bush to Give Saddam a Final Ultimatum

By SCOTT LINDLAW - The Associated Press - Monday, March 17, 2003; 10:18 AM

"President Bush planned to address the nation Monday night to give Saddam Hussein a final ultimatum. "He will say that to avoid military conflict Saddam Hussein must leave the country," spokesman Ari Fleischer said."

I guess this really is Saddam's last, last, last, last chance....;)

I beleive this is the most likely scenario. I hope the second address comes Thursday evening.

1) My daughter will be back from her spring break trip.
2) It will screw up CBS telecast of the NCAA Tournament (take THAT Dan Rather!)

Powell to speak at 10:45 AM...

What I would like to hear from Powell is that Saddam has until 7:59 PM EST to get the hell out of Iraq. Then the President can take it from there at 8:00.

1) My daughter will be back from her spring break trip.

My daughter just left yesterday on a cruise. She won't be back until next Sunday! My only consolation is that she is with her future in-laws and the dad is a former air force fighter pilot so I have faith he will take good care of her.

The French UN Ambassador said that a "majority" of the SC would have voted against the US/Brits/Spain. I wonder why they had to threaten a veto if that were the case.

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.

GET IT TOGETHER

Funny how that sort of thing seems to happen a lot less around Free Republic Donation time. There seem to be a lot of such duplicate postings of that sort then.

France is to blame

On the positive side, France's actions may have emboldened SH enough to stick around and dig his own grave...had there been a unifed front in the UN, he might have decided to step down, putting one of his equally evil, yet much younger and healthier sons in command, maintaining puppet control...would we then be able to go in and topple the regime? That, to me, would have been a worse scenario....

I finally bought a little computer desk and stuck my computer in the family room next to the TV. I got tired of running back and forth from the kitchen! :) My family is getting ready to do an intervention...:)

My recollection is that these presidential speeches tend to follow, not precede, the beginning of military action.

But Bush is not just any President...he clearly stated he would address the American people before action started.

Very simple! They were attempting to show the rest of the folks that it was useless to support it, as they were just gonna veto it anyway. By constantly saying that they were going to veto it, they never had to.
