The U.S. Will Not Go to War Against Iraq


K-Lo: I would be very glad to be proved wrong on this one. I just don’t
see any escape from the logic. (1) The U.S. (and, I feel absolutely
certain, Britain) will not go without UN approval, in the form of a Security
Council resolution. (2) The Security Council is not going to approve such a
resolution. On (1): if GWB is willing to go to war without UN approval,
why didn’t he do so yesterday? or last month? or a year ago? On (2):
here is a list of the members of the Security Council: USA, UK, Russia,
China, France, Germany, Spain, Bulgaria, Chile, Pakistan, Mexico, Guinea,
Syria, Angola, Cameroon. I rest my case.
