From what I remember from contract law, once an offer has been rejected, that offer is no longer on the table and any later attempted acceptance is non-binding on the offering party. In any event, can anyone see Hussein, sometime in the next day and a half, announcing that he has changed his mind, that he is willing to go into exile? I can't.
Therefore, Bush should order the attack now.... deny them their last 31 hours of preparation, before they can blow up the oil fields, before they can launch chemical attacks at our staging areas.
But, he won't.... and I'll pray that we don't learn later that waiting another couple of days was the very, very, very wrong choice.
