The First Strike

Lots of conjecture this morning about whether or not the first strike against Iraqi leadership last night was successful. Of course, complete success would be a cartoon-style Saddam pancake. But I think even a no-fatalities result would be worthwhile. Nothing rattles the nerves more than 40 cruise missiles whistling around what you think is your safe house or your secret motorcade. That sends a real “you can run but you can’t hide” message, don’t you think?
