Stories for Friday, Jan. 10:

• Weapons inspectors have delivered a tough message to Iraq: Opening doors and submitting old declarations isn't enough to satisfy the United Nations, and Baghdad must prove that its arms programs have been destroyed.

Chief inspector Hans Blix and Mohamed ElBaradei, who is in charge of nuclear inspections, told the U.N. Security Council on Thursday they have found no "smoking gun" since U.N. inspections resumed on Nov. 27 — but that doesn't mean there isn't one.
Scott Ritter, former U.N. chief weapons inspector and Togo West, former secretary of the Army weigh in…

• As expected, North Korea pulled out of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Friday, and raised the global temperature a bit higher still when it warned that any American action against it "would lead to the Third World War." However, Pyongyang said it would be willing to talk to Washington to defuse the escalating crisis, even though it boasted it could match the U.S. in a "fire-to-fire standoff." The South Korean government called the issue a matter of "life and death."

• About 7,000 Marines at Camp Lejeune have been ordered to board ships and await deployment orders to the Persian Gulf, officials said Friday morning. The Marines would be part of an air and ground task force that would include infantry, tanks, amphibious vehicles and aircraft, in the event of a war with Iraq.
