    I wonder if those who support continued inspections as an alternative to
    war could answer a question for me. Who will pay to keep hundreds of
    thousands of soldiers in the Middle East in combat ready condition while
    the inspections continue indefinitely? This question assumes that Saddam
    will kick out the inspectors and restart his weapons programs (or just
    continue them if they were never stopped) as soon as the United States
    brings back its soldiers, but why wouldn't he?
