Chris, It will be a first for the UK not to back up the US' leadas far as I can see. If the US wants a war, Blair will ride the train until he gets what needs out of it and jump off. US polls vary as polls generally do, but most claim Americans want to go to war, some prefer proof and some prefer UN approval. If Iraq accepts terms and if the US doesn't try to pull any underhanded tricks.. things will be ok. Hopefully sanctions will be removed so the people can get on with life. With all of this talk about Saddam hurting his people (don't get me wrong, he is a twat) you would think someone would have spoken up about the US/UK imposed sanctions.. and how they have caused countless suffering and death... ~ Anai Rhoads Chris wrote: I hope you are wrong. I can't see that Blair can go along with an attack but I might be wrong about that,too. US public opinion is opposed to action without support. Russia, China, and France were not keen(nor are British people and MPs) before action by Iraq. US has started on UN route and is very difficult to drop back now. Before this, I felt very pessimistic. Bush doesn't impress anybody with any brains. He sounds and loooks as if he is suffering from Alzeimers, and Europe(apart from Blair) regard him with contempt, and Cheney, and Rumsfeld, and Ashcroft. Regards, Chris - - - - Forgiveness breaks the chain of causality because he who forgives you -- out of love--takes upon himself the consequences of what you have done. Forgiveness, therefore, always entails a sacrifice. -- __________________________________________________________ Sign-up for your own FREE Personalized E-mail at Mail.com http://www.mail.com/?sr=signup _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
