With parliament voting for war, and Saddam Hussain refusing to back down and go into exile, it seems that war is now inevitable - merely a matter of when the first cruise missile will be launched, the first bombs dropped, the first troops engaged. In a way I support the coalition's motives - Saddam is an man who should be removed from power as soon as possible - but the pretext that they're only going in to disarm him of his WMD is something I don't agree with. How can the US and UK be so openly hypocritical? If they think that WMD are that much of an evil, shouldn't they dispose of their WMD first as a gesture of good will?
