Condensed version

The Washington Post takes a hard line on the inspection process and Iraq’s lack of cooperation, asking what more the inspectors need to “accomplish” if they’ve shown Iraq to be unwilling to disarm - which they have.

Also, Richard Cohen decries the veiled anti-Semitism and unveiled anti-Americanism on display by erstwhile “allies” at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The Detroit Free Press attempts to raise the bar for the inspectors, admitting Iraq has failed to comply with the Security Council resolution, but saying the inspectors have not proven that Saddam poses “a clear and present danger.”

The Cleveland Plain Dealer proposes giving other nations of the world veto power over American use of force.

The Indianapolis Star, however, places the burden back where it belongs - on Iraq - and states flatly any continued delay in full compliance is grounds for action.
