If there are any banned weapons still in Iraq -- and that's a big if -- finding them isn't going to be easy. Scattered throughout the country are 3,000 sites where weapons of mass destruction might be, Gen. Tommy Franks, commander of U.S. forces in the Gulf, said. And American troops are only checking 10-15 of those locations per day.Before the war, some analysts predicted that Hans Blix-style inspections would have to resume once the conflict ended. Those forecasts are now looking increasingly prescient.But these examinations could once again be a prologue to battle. President Bush yesterday said "there are chemical weapons in Syria," shipped from Iraq.When asked if that meant the U.S. would be invading Syria next, he replied, "First things first. We're here in Iraq now."
