Does This Mean the War is Off?

Associated Press:
UNITED NATIONS (Jan. 9) -- U.N. weapons inspectors have not found any smoking guns in Iraq during their search for weapons of mass destruction, the chief U.N. weapons inspector said Thursday.
''We have now been there for some two months and been covering the country in ever wider sweeps and we haven't found any smoking guns,'' Hans Blix told reporters at the United Nations."

Mark my words, this news will not change the Bush decision to engage Iraq in war.
All of his campaign financing buddies in the military industrial complex are eagerly awaiting the cash flow from a protracted war. Bush can't let his buddies down, now can he?
Watch the spin the White House will put on the UN's findings (or lack thereof).
We are about to enter the "Yeah, but" phase.
No weapons of mass destruction found?
"Yeah, but we know Saddam didn't answer all the questions."
Bush, you said if they were denying UN weapons inspectors access, they'd have to pay. They let them in and they didn't find anything, so no war, right?
"Yeah, but we know they are liars."

Fasten your seatbelts, folks. We are going to war.
