Finnish blogger Teemu Lehtonen reports on pro-invasion commentary carried in the pages of a local newspaper, Ilta-Sanomat. Lehtonen translates some choice parts of Juha-Pekka Tikka’s commentary:
"The weapon's inspections in Iraq are a good thing. For example, 25 divisions of extremely well equipped inspectors with air support sounds like an idea that should be acted upon immediately" .. "Or more seriously, the way to inspect for Saddam Hussein's weapons is to first remove him and inspect later"
Well, Saddam did agree “unconditionally” to inspectors, didn’t he?
UPDATE: Lehtonen's website seems to be afflicted with the infamous Blogspot linking bug. Scroll down to the post dated Saturday, September 21, 2002.

KISSINGER, IRAQ AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER
The American Metternich lays out an excellent case for war with Iraq, the role of the U.S. in the global fight against terrorism and, just to give the Birchers something to chew on, he notes that “President Bush has affirmed America's commitment to a new world order.” (Don’t download the Korean character set.
