A case for action, not a case for war.

I've read Iraq's weapons of mass destruction: The assessment of the British Government, and I find that I agree with David Aaronovitch - this is a case for action, not a case for war.

Vattekkat seems to be unhappy about mention of "some Indian companies". Having read the full dossier, I find mention of only one Indian company. The Indian government suspended this company's export license. You can find unscrupulous companies in any country - God knows there are enough of them here. The Indian government acted entirely properly. Why does Vattekkat think that this reflects badly on India?

Yes, you are right. All this war drums beating around was getting a bit too much for me. I think seeing this news item took it beyond my boiling point :-)

I have a feeling that the "war drums" aren't as loud this side of the pond - there is considerable unease about the prospect of war over here.
