Three months ago, these sort of concerns might have resonated, although we are not sure that they should have even then. But not after Sept. 11. Saddam Hussein has spent years thwarting inspections in order to shield his biological and chemical weapons manufacturing. And Iraq has long been on the United States list of state sponsors of terror. We now have the momentum and the national will to do what has to be done. To be sure, there will be difficulties along the way. But their anticipation should not be allowed to stop us from doing what has to be done. We can deal with challenges as they arise.
We dare not lose sight of the fact that if we do not thoroughly address terrorists cells around the world as the cancer-like predators they are, the bin Ladens will be able to do what the Nazis, Japanese warlords and Communists were unable to accomplish.
