INTERESTING CHOICE OF WORDS: Check out the opening paragraph of this AP article, which Matt Drudge linked to:

Warning Iraq that it’s “five minutes to midnight,” Chief U.N. inspector Hans Blix pleaded with the Iraqi government Tuesday to show that it is actively cooperating during his visit this weekend by producing evidence about its weapons programs.

So for Blix, regime change is “midnight”–implying that it will get darker if the US attacks Iraq and replaces the current dictatorship with a democratic–or at least more liberal–regime?

Of course, for the stasist UN, any change, even one for the better, is probably “midnight”.

UPDATE: We’d like to think that soon, it will be morning in Iraq (to coin a phrase). And the pieces are rapidly fitting into place to allow that to happen.
