slaughter of civillians; Saddam re-invades a neighboring country;
Iraqis re-engage in an open rebellion against Saddam's regime;
credible evidence is supplied to the UN that Saddam is providing
nuclear arms technology to non-state actors; Saddam Hussein says

Indeed. If ever there was a crime that screamed for military intervention it would be deporting floating leprechauns back to the genocidal fifth dimension.
