You established it when you said:

When Saddam would obtain certain capabiliites such as being able to overrun more than just Kuwait and take the Saudi oil fields is not clear. Nor is it exactly clear when he could have produced a nuclear weapon or other forms of WMD.

Nope, because that was NEVER the criteria for when military action would be used again against Saddam. The criteria was violation of the UN Security Council resolutions and the 1991 UN Ceacefire Agreement. Waiting for Saddam to have the capability to overrun the entire Arabian pennisula and have nuclear weapons would be tragically too late.

More importantly, the only viable option to regime change, containment, had fallen apart with the erosion of sanctions and the weapons embargo. Without an effective sanctions and weapons embargo in place, containment can't work. Without containment, your only option for dealing with Saddam is regime change.

Sad that when France and India are having hidden nuclear facilities, no one gives a damn. If Iran has them, then booooo!

December is 'a very real deadline' for Iran: White House
December 22nd, 2009
AFP

Washington: December is "a very real deadline" for the international community ahead of possible new sanctions on Iran and its nuclear programme, the White House spokesman, Mr Robert Gibbs, warned on Tuesday.

Earlier on Tuesday Iran's president, Mr Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, again rejected a year-end deadline set by the United States to accept a UN-brokered deal aimed at allaying fears over its nuclear programme.

"They say we have given Iran time until the end of the Christian year. Who are they anyway? It is we who have given them an opportunity," Mr Ahmadinejad said in a speech in the city of Shiraz carried live on state television.

Several Iranian officials had already dismissed such a deadline to reach a way out of the nuclear crisis.

With a year-end deadline, the US President, Mr Barack Obama's administration has signalled that time is running out for Iran to seize its offer of diplomatic engagement for resolving nuclear and other issues.

It has raised the spectre of a fourth round of UN sanctions, but will need to persuade Russia and China to drop their traditional reluctance to consider tougher measures.

Iran insists its nuclear programme is solely for civilian purposes and rejects Western suspicions that it is covertly trying to develop a bomb.
Guess it all depends on what "a very real deadline" is. This story will return to the front page sometime this year and not in a good way.
