    DJ US Sen Expects War With Iraq `About Mid-March' -CNN
    NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Monday that unless Saddam Hussein disarms or goes into exile, he thinks the U.S. will be at war with Iraq by "about mid-March."
    In an interview with the Cable News Network, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., said he thought the chances the Iraqi president would agree to disarm or leave the country are slim to none "and probably slim left town."
    Roberts said if things go right the war would last weeks, but if things go wrong it would probably last "several months."
    When asked by CNN about the chances Iraqi troops would use biological or chemical weapons, Roberts said the U.S. expects that and is ready for it.
