Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As someone that does not immediately dismiss the Cheney/Bush admins wish for a war with Iraq, I have to say that any overt move in that direction under the current circumstances in Washington is more likely to create a constitutional crisis than a war.

Simply put, the White House is now even isolated from a large part of the Republican party, after the snubbing of the Baker committee.

We shall see how this develops. There was a thread last night on dailyKos about Tony Snow's daily press briefing, in which he was backpedalling on attacking Iraq, and someone speculated that that was in response to pressure from Congress, alarmed by Bush's belicosity. Still, BushCo is known for liking to present the rest of the world with faits accomplis.
