In fact, he would have been better off by telling them to go to
f...orgive his unwillingness to cooperate, and deal as best as he
could with the consequences.

Actually, he kept resisting the inspections and other demands... just
to surrender regularly a little later when the "PR" damage was already
done, and the demands have grown in the meantime, so that the US found
themselves in the ideal situation of profiting both from a
non-cooperative image of Iraq, *and* all the strategic advantages and
intelligence they could hope for (in view of the decision on whether
to attack and of how better doing that).

This may also be taken as a kind of metaphor of what the transhumanism
movement should never do when faced with its opponents. :-)
