As well as encouraged

Bullshit. The inspectors were making considerable progress; there was no need for troop build-up.

Again, nice rebuttle. If anything, it's way ON topic, because Bush is condemning country for possessing weapons of mass destruction.

Hahahahahahaaaaaa! Yet again, what a nice retort.
