UN Inspectors Find 'Suspect' Illegally Smuggled Material

At some point it's getting a little silly to have people who are opposed to conflict insisting that, just because he's violating the UN embargoes and smuggling lots of illegal things, it does not state that he may be smuggling dangerous illegal things unless the inspectors happen to walk into Hussein's office and see a nuclear bomb.

This is an evil dictator, after all ... it is a big country. He could literally shuffle nuclear bombs from place to place on an underground system and the UN inspectors would never know it. For the UN to be insisting that because they have looked for six weeks and found nothing, there must be nothing ... is a little silly. Hans Blix is not exactly the most aggressive choice to lead this operation, so six weeks with him is three weeks with anyone else.

If someone has been caught stealing bread and you suddenly find that cheese is missing too, it is not unreasonable to assume that a thief did the thieving. Likewise, if Iraq has knowingly been violating UN sanctions and importing weapons, it is not unreasonable to think he may have illegally smuggled in things that could be used to create weapons of mass destruction.
