However, there were NO successes with UNSCOM for merely being allowed to reenter Iraq. See S. Africa and how they complied years prior. No points were accumulated by the U.N. or Iraq for just showing up, sorry.
If we simply needed another year, why not another two years, or ten years? What makes a year the right amount of time? Is that gleaned from thin air?
