Good Evening.
The latest report from United Nations wepons inspectors is released and it does nothing to ease the sharp divide in the council.
Meanwhile the U-S and British want to go ahead with a resolution that gives Saddam Hussein 10 days to comply or face possible war
Other Security council members don't like that idea.

((The count down to a war with Iraq may have a new deadline. British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw has delivered a revised draft resolution giving Saddam Hussein until March 17 to disarm or face the possibility of war. Jack Straw, British Foreign Secretary "I'm asking the secretariat to circulate an amendment we are tabling which will specify a further period beyond the adoption of a resolution for Iraq to take the final opportunity to disarm and bring themselves into compliance." Although the extension gives reluctant security council members another chance to make a final decision, it also pressures them to do it quickly. The U.S. and Britain plan to bring the draft to a vote next week.
For his part, Secretary of State Colin Powell made the case for swift action in no uncertain terms, saying the token steps Iraq has taken toward compliance are not enough. Sec. of State Colin Powell: We know what full compliance should look like, what it does not look like and it does not look like it now. The day began with the much anticipated report by UN Chief Inspector Hans Blix. Blix cited several instances where Iraq was making progress and also took a veiled jab at the United States for withholding information from inspectors. Chief UN Weapons Inspector Hans Blix: "I'd rather have more high quality information about sites than more inspectors." UN inspectors aren't the only ones looking for a diplomatic solution. Both France and Russia have already voiced their opposition to any deadline for war, regardless of the time frame. ))

((After a quarter-century in power, Iraqs President Saddam Hussein is the only leader many Iraqis have ever known.
He is everywhere you look.
You can even wear himas an accessory.
Ask who is likely to replace him, and you get some pretty predictable answers.

(MOS Mutanabi book market)

3:35 Who comes after Saddam? No one. 8:21Nobody, because he is remaining. Why you think he is going to go? Why? (smiles)
But away from the watchful eye of my government guide, people are quietly beginning to talk about new faces.
Its not necessarilya comforting thought.

(super: February 27)


Many of the opposition leaders Washington is cultivatinghave little credibility here like Ahmed Jalabi, who is wanted on charges of embezzling millions of dollars from Jordan.

(Dozier on-cam) Many experts are predicting that violence and

chaos could engulf post-war Iraq, as the different groups vie for power. Thats why many Iraqis prefer Saddam, the devil they know.
Scenes like this on their t.v.s dont exactly make Iraqis feel warm and friendly towards their would-be American liberators.

(Super: File)


After missiles hit civilians in this bomb shelter in 1991, they know all too wellthat well-intentioned U.S. firepower can go astray.
In private or on camera, Iraqis tell me bombing them, is not the way to help. As for changing Iraqs leadership, theyve got another plan.

Officials say most of the hour hand is missing. They hope to be able to determine the hour it stopped by examining the small part remaining. Records say the Hunley went down after a battle with the Housatonic about 8:45 p-m.
