Calling the U-N resolution baseless, in a show of hands, the Iraqi parliament unanimously rejected the resolution on arms inspections. It is now Saddam Hussein's move. He has until Friday to issue a final decision.

rejection to all allegations which are not true and for information which are false."
Iraqi officials say the vote sends a message to Americans that Iraqis are united behind their leadership.

President Bush is dismissing Iraq's recommendation as theatrics, saying there isn't anybody that takes the voice of the Iraqi parliament seriously.

(SOT: Bush)


In a sign Iraq is preparing for war, the New York Times reports Baghdad has ordered a million doses of an antidote for nerve gas. The White House says it could mean Iraq plans to use nerve agents -- and would need the drug to protect its soldiers. Meanwhile, The Pentagon is putting pressure on Saddam, releasing a tentative plan if war breaks out. The strategy calls for a land, sea and air force of up to 250,000 troops.
STAND-UP: Even if Iraq allowed inspectors in, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says he doubts Saddam would agree to give up his banned weapons. Rumsfeld says Saddam has already started hiding them underground and it could take months to find them. ))
