Surprise - Iraq Balks At UN Weapons Inspection

The Iraqi government protested to the United Nations on Sunday, as inspectors readied a crucial new round in the weapons hunt, that the small print behind their mission will give Washington a pretext to attack.

The new U.N. resolution on weapons inspections could turn "inaccurate statements (among) thousands of pages" of required Iraqi reports into a supposed justification for military action, Foreign Minister Naji Sabri complained in a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan.

"There is premeditation to target Iraq, whatever the pretext," Sabri said.

What Sabri is missing is the one key element -- if there are weapons of mass destruction and they have been lying about them, they will be attacked. I am sure that's making them a little nervous ... for obvious reasons.
