I’ve been watching CNN all morning, and with the U.N. process dead and Bush addressing the nation in seven hours, it’s clear that the only question now is the timing of the impending war with Iraq. This is a big question for me because of the NCAA Tournament.
Most of the first-round games I’m really eager to watch (in particular, my predicted upsets by Gonzaga, Weber State, Western Kentucky, and Holy Cross) are on Thursday, so I’m praying Bush gives Saddam at least a three-day ultimatum. That would stretch things out long enough that the war shouldn’t start until Thursday night or Friday, in which case Thursday’s first-round games presumably wouldn’t be bumped off CBS.
If I ever have time, I’ll post a full commentary about the merits of the war. But right now, I gotta work some more on the pool. :) Yeah, I have my priorities straight. So, check out InstaPundit for up-to-date commentary. Also, today’s Washington Post editorial endorsing the U.S. and U.K. position is worth reading.
