What guarantees can the Prime Minister offer that the following scenario will not occur?

After a bombing campaign by the US and its allies, Saddam grants the UN inspectors unfettered access to all the sites that they wish to examine. Then after several months he throws them out on some trumped-up charge, forcing the West once again to mount a military response.

Meanwhile it is powerless Iraqi civilians that will have to suffer the mayhem of these bombing campaigns in addition to the suffering already imposed upon them through economic sanctions.
