Why and when prez ought to strike | Here's a one word explanation for Republican success at the polls: Character.

Undecided voters concluded George W. Bush stood for something and Democrats didn't -- and that he means what he says.

Now comes an interesting stand-off between the president and U-N. Exhibit 1: Iraqi missile batteries recently violated international law and U-N resolutions by firing at U-S and British jets.

But U-N Secretary General Kofi Annan says the violation isn't a violation because the new resolution that defines a violation doesn't consider this violation a violation.

Got it?

Exhibit 2: Chief Weapons inspector Hans Blix says that even if Saddam Hussein lies to weapons inspectors and hides weapons of mass destruction, he may not violate the resolution, which outlaws both activities.

In short, the UN can't distinguish truth from falsehood. It can't call a lie a lie; a violation a violation.

So what will happen if we find weapons in Saddam's possession? My guess is the president will assemble a coalition of like-minded countries and strike -- that's what he's promised and after all, it's all about character.
