Baghdad, Iraq-AP -- Iraq is continuing to assert its defiance, despite ongoing weapons inspections and a growing military presence in the region.In a front page editorial today, the newspaper of Saddam Hussein's ruling party says life won't be disrupted "by America's loud talk." And another daily newspaper owned by Saddam's son is accusing Washington of "beating the drums of war" -- despite Iraq's assertions that it doesn't have any weapons of mass destruction. Meantime, U-N inspectors are conducting another day of weapons searches. According to Iraq's information ministry, they're visiting Baghdad's technological university and two science colleges. The U-S and Britain are also accelerating their military build-up. Washington says it should have enough forces in the region by early February to wage war. Copyright 2002 Associated Press.
