The Betting Line

From today’s Guardian:

With the deployments currently under way, President George Bush could go to war soon after January 27, when the chief weapons inspector, Hans Blix, is to report to the UN security council on the progress of the inspections.

The new moon over Iraq will come on February 2, I’m told. Expect the shooting (or at least the announced start) to begin around 1pm EST on February 1.
