I've always thought that the time we are in now will be the most dangerous. Bush has the gun, locked and loaded, finger on the trigger and his target knows it. From Hussein's point of view, now is the time to go for broke because he's got nothing left to lose. There's a good chance that only actions that can't be tracked back to Iraq will occur, because Hussein's underlings understand that they are not doom yet.
This morning I heard that there has been another major bombing, this time in the Philipines. Multiple bombs, fatalities and many injuries. The only motive I can see is spite - this kind of attack is just going to convince everyone else that they are in fact at war and targets. But it wouldn't be the first time that that miscalculation has occurred.
