HENRY ROLLINS Speaks Out On Possible U.S. Invasion Of Iraq

Punk rock icon Henry Rollins recently spoke to Launch about Hussein's evasion of U.N. weapons inspections. "If he didn't have anything to hide, then why is he saying, 'Oh you can't go there,' " Rollins questioned. "I think a full 100-percent daylight, lights on, everything known, inspection needs to be had, if not, then it needs to be leveled. 'Let's just say, anywhere you don't allow us to check we just drop a bomb on it. How 'bout that?' I am so down with that. 'Well, I'll put women and children in it.' Well, then you can tell the world that you killed them because we told you what we're going to do. And now it's up to you to put the women and children in that mosque or take them out."

Rollins added, "We should promise, not threaten, we should promise. And if the women and children get killed the blood is not on our hands. That is a really harsh point of view, way harsher than I usually am and way more to the right than I usually am, but this guy is screwing up."

Rollins continued, "I think that if Saddam Hussein wants to be in the world picture and have his sanctions lifted, he should put the entire world at ease and give unlimited access to U.N. weapons inspectors."
