Sometimes you just want to shake your head: Sen. Carl Levin was on Fox News Sunday earlier today, and I'm watching the recording of it. Let me say that I think Sen. Levin is a very limber man. The mental contortions that he's having to go through to oppose military action in Iraq while acknowledging that government's violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1441.
Another interesting thing: Levin, has a convenient definition of "unilateral." On FNS, Levin said that when he says "unilateral" he means "UNilateral," that is you must have the U.N. authority -- no matter how many other nations are on our side.
Levin, while acknowledging that Iraq has not been cooperating with the U.N. inspectors, says that the "serious consequences" outlined in Resolution 1441 are . . . another resolution!
Saddam has received numerous "come to Jesus" talks over the past 12 years -- all to no effect. He's determined to keep weapons of mass destruction and continue supporting terrorism. Saddam has made his bed -- now he's going to have to sleep in it -- permanently.
