5-TO-7 BILLION DOLLARS TO RETURN FORCES TO THEIR HOME BASES AFTER THE WAR IS OVER...
AND THE COST OF OCCUPYING AND HELPING TO REBUILD IRAQ AFTERWARDS... ANYWHERE FROM 1 TO 4-BILLION A MONTH.

THE C-B-O ESTIMATE IS CLOSER TO THE 50-TO-60-BILLION DOLLAR PREDICTION... LESS THAN THE FIRST PERSIAN GULF WAR.

((In the face of the increased military build-up all around the Gulf -- today the UN started a build-up of its own.

permanent base in northern Iraq -- casting a new net into a region that so far, has remained largely un-inspected.
In Southern Iraq -- a similar story -- with teams combing through this University Biology Department that hasn't been inspected since 1998.

"They visited all the labs and, in fact, they checked the instruments which had been previously labeled by the team."

The UN excursions deep into Iraq's countryside are the latest signs inspectors are turning up the heat.
The deadline to report their findings to the UN Security Council is just three weeks away.
And the UN admits, it still has a long way to go.

(COWAN ON CAM)


"It IS a time consuming process. One inspection doesn't necessarily mean a site is cleared. Just the wall all around this factory for example stretches for at least a mile in every direction, and has already been the site of repeated visits."

(NARR:)(CBS)


And it's that repetition that is beginning to wear on the nerves of some Iraqi plant managers -- like this one who complained HIS workers are losing money while the inspectors are doing THEIR work.

(SOT/MUSTAFA ABDUL AL-KHADER/ PLANT MANAGER)(CBS)


"Our production was stopped during the visit, and this is not easy for our people."

The willingness to put up with that inconvenience is what Iraq hopes to show off as an example of cooperation when the (UNTV) UN's CHIEF weapons inspector RETURNS to Baghdad.
