51. I already did.
The thirty day wait would have avoided war. Blix was reporting active participation by the Iraqis after the last attempt to get a UN reolution to authorize war. Blix said he expectedto resolve the non-compliance with 1441 within the thirty days given the Iraqis new level of participation. Bush could not wait the thirty days because he knew that if the Iraqis complied with 1441 he would be out of a reason for war. Biden-Lugar was the pragmatic way to avoid war and also assure compliance with 1441 based on the facts at the time.
