I think it will be very soon. I watched Colin Powell's speech this afternoon and he made it pretty clear that we are ready. Here are some of his
ï Iraq has not made the "strategic and political decision" needed to disarm
ï Iraqi steps toward disarmament are "too-little, too-late gestures" meant to split international resolve to see Baghdad give up its weapons of mass
ï U.S. intelligence indicates that Iraq has hidden equipment to produce Al Samoud 2 missiles even as it destroys existing ones under U.N.
ï The U.S. "has done everything possible to avoid war."
ï The international community must confront Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's refusal to disarm "here and now" in order to secure peace.
ï U.S. intelligence indicates Iraq is hiding chemical and biological weapons in poor neighborhoods in Baghdad.
Officials said as many as 750 missions a day are now being flown by all types of aircraft, including fighters, refueling and reconnaissance aircraft.
That number is about two to three times what had been the routine.
