KF is taking credit for a prediction that Saddam would destroy his WMD in order to make the Bush regime look bad. Saddam may have actually roped-this-dope.

I still contend that if Saddam had made a good show of destroying the weapons years ago he would not only still be in power but his nation would be a much stronger power in the region. Napoleon won at Austerlitz because he gave the opposition what they thought they wanted.

By the same token, if the Palestinians and their supporters were to effectively renounce violence they could really strike a damaging blow to Israel. Both within Israel and without Sharon would be seriously discredited.
